Theme Speed Test Video

Great speeds and great scores running the Backcountry theme from StudioPress on WPEngine. If this is the right look and feel for you, its going to be plenty fast if you run it on the right host.

WPEngine and Lightning Base tied for speed when running the Backcountry theme from StudioPress.  Both had great speeds.

*We should point out that Google Page Speed Insights rolled out a change to their scoring when we performed the 2nd and 3rd sets of tests increasing results from Mobile and Desktop grades to Mobile-User Experience , Mobile – Speed and Desktop.  We will be making a slot modification in the way we keep these records going forward.
