Disable Live Rendering

Asked on November 23, 2015 in Feature Requests.


Recently bought the Classroom Layers theme and it’s great! BUT…the live rendering from the customization panel can really slow development down. If the network is slow, everything grinds and freezes because it’s trying to render my changes in real time.  It took me over 90 minutes one day to do one page.

Would you consider providing an option to disable that so the page only updated once we clicked the update/save button?

    Hi there,
    Unfortunately we cannot control the way the customizer works, which is to provide a live preview.  WordPress 4.4 will be introducting core changes that greatly increase customizer performance, which should in turn make widget building in the customizer much snappier.
