Enable Preloader

Enable or Disable the preloader on your website by turning on/off the Enable preloader option.

A preloader is what you see on your screen while the rest of the page’s content is still loading. When the page is loaded from the server, some styles/scripts are loaded later (or takes more time) than others, it’s just processing data. This leads to the fact that the page can be displayed without style for a few seconds. To let visitors know that the website hasn’t crashed, we encourage you to use the preloader.

The theme preloader appears like this:

Site smooth scroll

Enable this option if you want the scrolling of the pages in the theme to roll smoothly. When this option is disabled, the scrolling will stop as soon as the user lets go of the mouse roller.
