1. For me, I need to visually see the difference between Floats to Flexbox can i get example? i am not a programmer so i need to see things clear to actually benefit from your updates.
2. if i will decide to to switch, i like to know where in the control panel i need to change it, so i will not open another support ticket.October 7, 2020 at 12:47 am #1475909Lilia

changing to Flex makes an improvement to performance.
One change that may be noticeable is the site container width is now accurate.
For example; in 2.4 a 1200px container with 40px of padding would display a 1280px wide container. in 3.0 it will display a 1200px wide container.
There should be no other noticeable changes unless there is custom code in place. For example some users used the grid-* classes built into the Floats version to create there own grids and columns. Changing to Flex removes those classes which would break those custom grids.
Hope that helps
Hi Pascal – You may find its just a Caching issue – clear any plugin/server/browser caches. If not can you raise a new topic and share a link to your site.October 7, 2020 at 3:40 am #1476142Sharon
Does the improvement to performance make huge different? you recommend me to switch to Flex ?
SEO is the most important to me.October 7, 2020 at 5:09 am #1476279DavidStaffCustomer Support
In comparison to the base 2.4 theme the improvement is noticeable.
However those improvements maybe negligible if your site is loading a lot of other styles/scripts etc. eg. if using a Page Builder.
You can always switch back to Floats if there is a noticeable problem using Flex.October 7, 2020 at 5:35 am #1476319Pascal
