If you’re using the Enfold theme and you’ve got your header stuck in this white color, even though you’ve tried to customize it, I’ve got a solution here for you.
This is the latest challenge I’ve had online that I’ve mastered by doing some googling, and I’ll make it a bit easier for you than it was for me.
If you’re new to the Enfold theme or don’t know what I’m talking about. This is the WordPress theme I use on my website.
It is beautiful, it makes my website look great and the cost is $59. If you want to pick this theme up, you can use this affiliate link to help me earn some.
I’ll show you how to fix this issue with the Enfold header colors.
We’ll go over to Themes and we need to go to Performance on the theme options. The main thing we need to edit is this CSS file merging and compression.
For some reason, this setting messes up the loading of the header.
If we go back to the homepage, you’ll see the error I had earlier.
You can see the whole header was not loading up here at all, it took away all the custom colors, and it did not make a significant speed increase on the page load either.
To fix this we go back there to Performance, we go over to CSS file merging and compression and we disable it.
If you’re having issues with a different WordPress theme or something similar, you might try it. Just see if these make a difference on your page. If they fix the issue.
When we disable it there. We see the header loads properly here again.
Now I’m seeing that my website is taking longer than I would expect it to load. If you are having other issues on your page, you can play around with the settings. See what takes the longest to load.
I see this Active Campaign form is taking the longest to load. All I can do on that is go down here down to widgets, go over to the footer column here, and just kill this widget over here.
Go back to the Homepage and see if it loads any faster without having to pull that form.
One of the most important things for a successful website is having a good page load time.
You’ll notice most of the pages on my website just load really fast going from one to another. One of the huge things for search engine optimization is having pages that load fast.
If you want to have the best page load time for your website. I’ve spent a lot of years researching getting this right and I recommend using the managed WordPress website, hosted on the Google Cloud Platform with Kinsta,
