WordPress Theme Performance Test Phlox (free) 2.9.3 - Blank Page - Vultr High Frequency 1GB

Phlox is a freemium theme developed by a company named Averta, which is also the team behind the popular Master Slider plugin. The free version of the theme is available from the official WordPress repository, while the paid pro version can be purchased from Themeforest. Users who bought Averta's Lotus theme from Themeforest in the past have now access to Phlox as lifetime updates. Phlox seems to be a completely different theme than Lotus, though.

Usually, theme performance tests on Speed Up Press are done without any plugins installed. However, right after installation, Phlox nags with big banners to install Elementor and the Phlox Core Elements plugin. Therefore, these plugins have been installed, as without them the theme might not work as imagined by the developers.
