  1. I think this question might be put of the WordPress subreddit paygrade..

    I will give you an example of what I worked with recently though if it’s any help. We had a huge site with hundreds of articles on. I upgraded to a new theme because the old theme was no longer supported.

    We used ColourMag theme. Everything was fine BUT:

    Tried many various ways to get the site as fast as possible, including new hosting with more resources.

    We came to the conclusion that an out of the box theme was not appropriate for many reasons. one being that we couldn’t get the site fast enough to help get a decent enough Google page speed score. WordPress themes can be bulky. Which your client might be interested in or not.. the site still worked fine overall.

    If it’s a huge site and you have the budget you are probably better off getting a reliable person to make a custom theme, rather than try and add stuff and bulk out an existing one. Bearing in mind it will help keep ypur site secure to get that developer to make updates to the theme code a few times a year as PHP evolves. Or even better a site not built with WordPress.

    Sorry if this is just no help at all lol. I only have a small insight to the industry so things might have changed since I was a dev.
