Alledia are making a bold claim that they've come up with the fastest ever Joomla theme and on initial plays, it looks like they could be right. I've got a feeling however, that they've set a challenge and that might all change fairly soon.

But while you are waiting for a faster theme to come out at just $25, this theme doesn't cost that much and might be worth a punt.

The theme is called Bolt, after the fastest man in the World and it's the first theme released from Alledia, the people you normally associate with SEO advice.

Which leads me on very nicely to the point of having a fast loading theme; the search engines like it and Alledia have also made the theme very search engine friendly.

I could go on all day but I think I've covered the main features, but here are some more:

  • 7 different color options
  • 15 different module options
  • Compressed, lightweight CSS
  • Only 8 images, all optimized
  • SEO-friendly design with H1 on page titles
  • No hidden links
  • No bloated code
  • No conflicts with other extensions
  • No complex setup
  • No use of Joomla's huge, slow Javascript file

This is no longer the fastest. Alledia have now released Breeze here.
