    Has anyone found a good alternative to the Pinboard theme? I still love the look of this theme, but because Pinboard hasn’t been updated in about 5 years, it’s causing my website to lag like crazy. It takes 20-30 seconds to respond to any changes or moving to another post, etc. Bluehost told me it’s almost certainly due to the theme. I want to find a theme with a similar look, but especially with a slider on the home page that automatically cycles through sticky posts.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Let me know if you find anything similar! I have always liked this but it hasn’t been updated for some time and I am starting to get worried.

    I have decided to go with Kale by Lyra Themes. It’s not a perfect substitution (the font size is too small compared to Pinboard, for starters), but I’m working through the changes and think I’ll be happy in the end. Switching themes did not immediately speed up my site, which is what I was hoping to do by replacing an outdated theme.

    Very likely that it has nothing to do with the theme Pinboard. I am using Pinboard since years and it is very fast. At least 10 different websites: Pagespeed can be very fast or slow, but there can be so many factors responsible for it. The theme pinboard is not the cause for such a slow pagespeed, a delay by one or two seconds: Maybe, but not 20-30 seconds.

    Nevertheless: Pinboard may become obsolete, since the last update was in 2015. Therefore I am looking for another theme. At present I find ASTRA to be a good canditate.
