How to best optimize for Minimog theme?

1. Disable Gutenberg assets: Usually you only use gutenberg blocks on blog and post pages. So disable them in rest pages to improvement page loading.

  • Open functions.php in your-site/wp-content/themes/minimog-child

  • Then add this following code:

function minimog_child_disable_gutenberg_wp_enqueue_scripts() {
  if( ! is_singular('post') ) {
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'minimog_child_disable_gutenberg_wp_enqueue_scripts', 100);

2. Disable WordPress global style: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/36834

  • Open functions.php in your-site/wp-content/themes/minimog-child

  • Then add this following code:

function minimog_child_remove_wp_global_styles() {
     remove_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wp_enqueue_global_styles' );
     remove_action( 'wp_body_open', 'wp_global_styles_render_svg_filters' );
add_action( 'init', 'minimog_child_remove_wp_global_styles' );

3. Disable unused Extendify module from Redux Framework plugin. (This method only applies to Redux Framework plugin version < 4.4.0)


Config Elementor settings to get best performance

1. Disable default font:

Avoid duplicate fonts load by Elementor and Minimog

  1. Go to Elementor -> Settings -> General -> Tick on Disable Default Fonts box.

2. Edit any page with Elementor -> Site Settings (Click on Bars icon) -> Global Fonts -> System Fonts => Choose font family as ‘Default’ for all settings: Primary, Secondary, Text, Accent

New websites don’t need support old Font Awesome version. So choose ‘No’ to disable it then reduce some assets loading for your website.
