This template is beautiful and great however I notice that it is extremely heavy and takes long to load. I have done a speed test on pingdom and it shows "top_compression_css.php" as heavy and causing slow downs. I tried to use a optimize plugin but the entire template crashes. Is there any way to optimize this template?

This template is very light weight and has fast load speeds. You can see from our demo that it loads in 3.7 seconds:

If you are having latency issues that would be because of content issues on your page (eg: large images), or because of performance issues on your server.

The php file you mentioned is just a flat file that calls all the files in a single location for less http requests. You can turn off compression if you would like and it would not really effect performance, the main point of the compression is less server requests. However, that will most likely not solve your problem as that file isn't making any calculations, it's just a cache file that is called and only refreshed periodically.
