Superb
By , for WP 3.4.2

Almost the same as the pro level, with darn good support, this drag & drop framework makes easy work of setting up a website.

Documentation

Is there any documentation with this theme? If it is a free theme there should be some in the zip file on download.

No support, scammy
By ,

No support of any reasonable kind, even when you are a paid member. Very weird system. Hard to use.

Their store is full of rip off items that dont work. No refund.

Avoid.

Needs work
By , for WP 3.5.1

This started out promising and I wanted to test out before I joined. The theme is not compatible across multiple browsers and has issues with widget updates. I realize there are around 300 or so browsers and, yes, this theme is compatible in the most current browsers but it is a titanic struggle to get it compatible with older browsers. Other themes do not have this issue and, if you used the excuse that one must upgrade their browser for it to work, the non-technical person paying me to build their website is not going to except that. Even a basic CSS code like this is to no avail to combat awful IE compatibility.

if ($explorer == 8)
{
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8">
}if($explorer = 7)
{
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7">
}
{
<meta http-equiv=“X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=6”>
}

Lastly, this theme is an extremely watered down version of what they offer. Themeforest, I'm coming back.

Broke with an error
By , for WP 3.5.1

Originally the update broke the theme from 1.3.9, uninstalling and reinstalling generated an error. I hear these guys are gutting the free version, or imploding it.

Installing Theme: PageLines 1.3.9
Downloading install package from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/pagelines.1.3.9.zip…

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the index.php file.

Theme install failed.

Theme needs a lot more work
By , for WP 3.4.2

Developing a theme takes a lot of work. There is a plugin called Theme-Check that is a great tool to use when developing a theme or making changes. This theme needs a ton of work. I realize this is a free version of PageLines but it a demonstration of the quality of your product and should be overhauled.

Causes Error in class-wp-xmlrpc-server.php
By , for WP 3.4.2

This Theme will cause an Error strpos(): Empty delimiter in class-wp-xmlrpc-server.php because of empty guid fields being inserted into the posts database table for attachments. These records are created when you upload a new logo or page header graphic (perhaps other images which are uploaded through the Pagelines Theme interface).

The End Result is that MS Live Writer and other authoring software, mysteriously stops working and because the XML output becomes mangled due to an error being thrown.

This is the code it breaks because it writes an empty guid field.


$attachments = $wpdb->get_results( "SELECT ID, guid FROM {$wpdb->posts} WHERE post_parent = '0' AND post_type = 'attachment'" );
if ( is_array( $attachments ) ) {
foreach ( $attachments as $file ) {
if ( strpos( $post_content, $file->guid ) !== false )
$wpdb->update($wpdb->posts, array('post_parent' => $post_ID), array('ID' => $file->ID) );
}
}
}

Personally, I'm rather stunned that a theme could render such a functionality useless. To the point that even removing the theme itself does not correct the issue.

Vastly Cut Down Version Of Full Theme
By , for WP 3.5.1

People downloading this should note that it is a vastly cut-down version of the paid theme - it only offers a few features. The full version costs $97 - it's unfortunate that the WordPress popular themes list allows these hobbled versions to appear in the list.
