Support » Theme: AccessPress Staple » Attention grab pile of… not so good and clean work.

  • Oh well let me start here:

    Unlike user @ultrak who clearly is one of the devs from Access Press (check account and his posts) I wouldn’t recommend this theme to my worst enemy. And WordPress.org should really consider to change their policies. I always thought that this site is providing legit and trustworthy sources of acquiring WordPress themes.

    I totally understand developers offering the Lite versions for free and charging for Pro versions of their work.

    But this? This came too far. This is dirty advertising and attention grab on it’s best and the AccessPress isn’t a single dev that does that.

    This particular Lite version theme is packed with some nice features or at least it is pretending to have all of that. Please challenge my word and install this theme go to the theme settings and make a simple change (for example change header from transparent to classic) and see for yourself what will going to happen with “your” theme.

    This site is going in wrong direction by allowing those developers to post their “work” in here…

  • Ps. please check how the default theme is linked to the Access Press website. Check the theme and see for yourself that all the links are hard-coded and all stuff linked to their demo site. It’s just disgusting and this kind of themes should be removed from WordPress.org.

    So you don’t like the advertisement in the theme option. Is that the problem?
    You can ignore it if you don’t like. But rating the theme with that aspect is not good at all.

    WordPress.org allow to add it so we have also added it remaining in the boundary of the WordPress rule and regulation. so i must say that your rating does not make sense at all.

    If you can really judge and rate our theme by it features then that would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    @access Keys, is @ultrak associated with your company? It looks like that account may be so you should let people know with reviews.

    @andrew This account is not associated with our company. But it may be from some of our continuous theme/plugin users. We have lots of users/vendors who are using our all themes/plugins.

    @accesspress it’s a common thing for developers to set up new accounts here shortly after releasing their work and give them good reviews.

    You can check when the @ultrak account was created and his whole activity ๐Ÿ˜‰

    To draw away the suspicions @ultrak commented some very few popular plugins ๐Ÿ™‚
    Do you think people are that naive?

    As for your theme I really encourage people to check what is under the hood. As for new users setting up this particular theme will be a nightmare.

    Never had a chance to review the PRO version as I wouldn’t buy a theme for more than $20 – $30.

    @access-keys I’m going to keep this light hearted and in good humor, but there’s lots of ways for moderators to confirm that that other account in connected with yours. It is and I’ve deleted the review.

    Now please, before you react, please be aware that this is being treated in good humor. I have not blocked or deleted the other account. But as the Resident Multiple Account Trackerโ„ข it does go on my list.

    @patrixon78 Also in good humor: the review should not include “I think this one other user is a fake review”. Could you update your review and limit it to just the theme itself? What you like, what you don’t and what you think would improve it?

    Nice is good too.

    Actually… that account was all reviews and all AccessPress. With a few side reviews tossed in.

    The ultrak account is now blocked.

    @jan Dembowski thanks for your intervention but I think you shouldn’t delete the review and keep it as example how dirty advertising methods are performed by devs. You guys should really address that, as I found more accounts like @ultrak‘s one.

    As for you @AcessPress how can we have a trust in you and your work?
    At least now do something to clear your name and do some give away to people. A PRO version of this theme would be nice. You won’t loose much but you definitely gain some respect from community.

    I can put a bet you won’t address that ๐Ÿ™‚

    @patrixon78 Please don’t expect much from the Free Themes.

    But we have tried to give as much as possible.

    I’m so lost now! Do I download this thing or not! @patrixon78 is it that bad or are you trolling a little bit bro!?
