Hi everyone! 

My store loading speed was stable until I switched into Basel theme. And now it becomes slower. Since I don't have any experiences in coding, I need you helping me to fix these issues. It affects my page performance and my customer experience a lot. Hope I get responses as soon as possible. Thank you so much!

A new theme is a completely different code base, so it's possible the new theme isn't as optimized as the other one.

Hi @Skipss 

as already mentioned, a new theme can and will absolutely have impact on your shops performance. We work on this topic on a daily basis – with and without Shopify sites – and sometimes a single line of code can make a big difference. More often it's much more complex.

I find this Page Speed Scores of Every Shopify Theme article very useful. Whar themes are you switching from and to?
