@K17, you're welcome and thank you!
@Ewap, I put mobile theme links/compatibility on the list of issues to look at.
Since Vanilla 2.5 has just been released, I will test the app out with it and see how it works. If anyone else is already using Articles with Vanilla 2.5, let me know if there's any issues with compatibility.
Would you like to hide articles before a specific date like "hide recent articles before November 15, 2017" or just something like "only show articles published within the last 10 days"?
@caygri, to link a page on the top menu with Basic Pages, you can enable the "Show header site menu link?" option when editing a page. Alternatively, the Add Menu Item plugin will give you more flexibility with how links are arranged.
The cause of the blank pages with Vanilla 2.2 and older with PHP 7 is due to Smarty, the PHP Template Engine. An updated version of Smarty will be included in the next release of Vanilla that fixes this.
Is your website loading fast already? The render blocking/delivery of JS and CSS warnings with Page Speed Insights isn't a big deal since most of the files in Vanilla plugins are small. Do your best to minimize the number and size of files as much as you can.
If consolidating/minification plugins won't work, you should use CloudFlare with the cache, Rocket Loader, and other features enabled.
I also recommend optimizing and tweaking your web server, PHP server, and MySQL server for performance and to scale with your website in a production environment as this can yield a greater performance improvement.
