My wordpress blog is running on a very advanced, powerful and e-commerce capable theme.
I did a performance test and found that my blog is underperforming because of these CSS, JS files. DOM tree consists of 1000+ nodes which are quite larger for a simple wordpress blog.
I am thinking to change my blog's theme because the current theme is very powerpacked and most of their features are unnecessary for my simple blog. Each time when page loads, there are unnecessary calls to JS file, CSS files, server roundtrips and it creates DOM nodes.
So suppose if I change my blog's theme; then will that give a boost in Fast loading speed and the performance issues?
