    hi there,

    this is not a “how can I do ..” post as I am doing for the last few days, but sharing some thoughts about generatepress and wp.

    I am not a wp guy, not a css man, definitely not coder. But I do care about clean, fast, efficient and capable things.

    My site will be a blog & training site about some software stuff, and here is my first thoughts.

    – I chose generatepress because it seems clean, simple yet capable. And it proves that until that time without any issue. It does what I expect from it, superior blogging esp. If u’ll write a blog, this is the theme I think. Wp-show-post and lightweight grid plugins should be tested, which I think they are a bit “lost” in documentation or not very clear. Nice and effective plugins.

    – My wordpress installation is on a virtual machine on azure, with nginx installed. I dont have much info regarding ubuntu or nginx but I have used this site a lot –> https://easyengine.io/ .
    Very simple and fast wordpress installation with nginx if u have a vm. (although they r not very active, it took the burden of reading many “how to install..” documentations. I followed their tutorials regarding optimizations.

    – I also followed some opt. tutorial written by Tom on gp site. They were simple and clear.

    – I tried dozen of themes before gp. I have never achieved that score on https://tools.pingdom.com with so little effort. With google analytics code and disqus plugin activated, I get a score of 97.

    If I disable them, I get 100 out of 100 score!

    nice and fast theme. congrats guys!
