On this tutorial, I would like to share my experience of rebuilding a client site based on ThemeForest’s theme with Visual Composer to Elementor.

Client problem: Slow website

  • The website loads extremely slow… So slow till the client got to put a notice there.
  • They worry about their SEO.
  • Website is hosts on AWS, and the cost is expensive. (595 request loads under 27sec is pretty good performance)

Other problems that I found on the slow website

  • WordPress, theme & plugin are outdated for years.
  • Outdated PHP.
  • The website had been developed by numbers of times, they never remove whatever themes & plugins they no longer needed.
  • They installed lots of plugins to achieve some layout design.
  • Multiple repeated function plugins.
  • Use WPBakery Page Builder (Visual Composer) to create post!

Here is the step on how I rebuild the website from WPBakery Page Builder (Visual Composer) to Elementor & make slow website load very fast in 1 sec

  1. Create a staging site on my webserver.
  2. Removed the unnecessary themes/plugins.
  3. Use phpMyAdmin (or plugin WP-Sweep ) to clean up the tables from removed themes/plugins.
  4. Use shortcode cleaner to remove shortcode.
  5. Redesign header, footer, page & post layout with Elementor
  6. Use Code Snippets to handle some function.
  7. Use Gutenberg to handle create post.
  8. Use Swift Performance Pro to optimize the website.
  9. Use Google Tag Manager to handle all the pixels.
