Before you start customizing your theme, ensure that you understand what level of support is available in each theme. In case if you’re making basic customizations, then you can get support from your theme’s developer. If you’re making extensive changes to your theme, then see our list of additional resources for theme support. Check more about customizations that Builderfly doesn’t support, see our design policy.

Page load speed
If you feel your online store loads slowly for your customers, then running a third-party online page speed test can help solve the problem. These tests can show whether it is the images, apps, other content, or a combination of the three that is slowing down the website.
Since each page on your website includes different content, it’s best to test all pages like your homepage, collection pages, blog pages and product pages to see where customers might be experiencing slower load times.
If you see that apps are slowing down your website, then take the following steps to help increase the speed:
- Remove any unnecessary applications.
- Consult your theme and app developers.
- Hire a Builderfly Expert.
When Builderfly don’t support extensive customization, there are several other resources available for you.
