I’m getting a Google PageSpeed Insights mobile score of 2.
I researched fast themes and bought this one because it’s so fast and customizable. The PageSpeed Insights score is worse now than it was before using GeneratePress. Before, it was 12.
I’m using the Studio theme that I imported plus Beaver Builder Pro.
There are some other issues, such as the header image recommended size is 350×70 but doesn’t show up as that size and is off center (vertically), plus the shrunken version of it on up-scroll is squished. Maybe those are topics for other support tickets, though.

You are loading a lot of images, scripts and css on the home page. More assets will require longer to download and therefore add to page speed. Have a look at the images and see if you can optimize them – there’s a good plugin called short pixel that helps with this. Also consider looking at the waterfall of your site homepage via the network tab located in the developer tools of chrome, firefox. See if you can remove any of the scripts, css that are not needed.
Once you have optimized your site consider adding caching like swift-performance-lite.April 1, 2019 at 6:19 am #855742DavidStaffCustomer Support
the PageSpeed insight report ( or better still the GTMetrix tool ) provides the list of issues regarding site loading speed.
The big factors are:
1. The number of images being loaded.
You can minimize this by reducing the number of posts being displayed with WP Show Posts or use the pagination / load more option.
2. The size of those images could be reduced through optimizing.
3. The number of request being made by the Site, a lot of which can be reduced with optimisation:
For your navigation you’re better of using the Nav as a header:
BTW- this is a one click fucntion in the latest release of GP Premium 1.8 ( currently in Alpha ).
The size of logo will be defined by the Menu item height, which you can set to the same for Primary Navigation and Sticky Nav in the Customizer.
