With search engines in mind such as Google and Bing we created the responsive theme Author. It is a perfect responsive and gorgeous SEO friendly and SEO optimized WP blog theme.
Author is coded in a new way, where it loads everything async and have carefully enqueued scripts so it loads as quick as possble. Almost every theme loads JS, CSS and much other code in an old and outdated way – We have tested this theme on many different servers and testing it with the tool Pingdom pagespeed test which compares it to the rest of the internet.
On slow servers the theme had an average load of 0.6 seconds, making it faster than 94% of all other websites. On decent to fast servers it went all the way down to 350 milliseconds seconds, making it faster than 97% of all other websites.
It won’t be long before a lot of themes start copying this technique to optimize the load time, but until then we are the first movers, which we are very proud of.
Author is fully customizeable, it has more than 70 settings and 4 widget areas: Above content, Underneath content, sidebar & footer widgets. You can use them as adspace, to create call to action sections and much more. The theme works with almost every single plugin and supports following post types: Video, Image, Aside, Status, Audio, Quote, Link and Gallery.
