A responsive WordPress theme does not mean a better website performance. Although it is necessary to incorporate elements of responsiveness into your web design, they have no impact on speed.The mission of Frontity is to get your site on screen as fast as possible. Ensuring a speedy mobile website will help boost your traffic and make your visitors have a painless, better experience across all devices.
According to Google, 53% of visitors leave a mobile site after 3 seconds if the content doesn’t load quickly. No one likes to stare at an empty screen waiting for pages to load.These users who are frustrated by a slow-loading site are more likely to bounce: visit your site once, leave and never return.If you don’t want to lose more traffic, you need to prioritize your mobile performance. Speed is key to keep users engaged, which results in greater pageviews and ad revenue, among many other benefits.
It may affect positively. Google takes note of the speed of your website in their search ranking algorithms. In addition, they recently announced that starting in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches too.Our solution makes your site load in less than one second and achieves a high performance.

Yes, it does. Frontity doesn’t use PHP to render HTML anymore. It uses a new system made with React and Node, carefully designed with performance in mind. We have made a lot of improvements which are (sadly) not possible in PHP.This means that we are not able to re-use your responsive theme. But it opens a new world of possibilities to build the best UX/UIs for the vibrant WordPress ecosystem.Our system uses the new WP-API to fetch the content (and just the content).
Of course! You can change colors, fonts, logos, link styles, size of featured images, etc. In the near future, you will be able to create your own themes too.
