Optimization of our BuddyBoss platform and theme is one of our focuses. There has been a lot of improvements already throughout ever since we have started the BuddyBoss Theme and BuddyBoss Platform. We know that this might not be enough for some of our users, but rest assured that we are working continuously on making our products faster and more efficient. You will notice performance improvement on every product update.
Please note that the BuddyBoss Theme and Platform is a complex software and not a simple theme. With users interacting, you need a solid server to handle all the DB queries.
We recommend VPS Hosting or better – Social communities increase server resource load with each concurrently logged-in user. Shared hosting will provide a very slow experience.
