  • CyberCobre


    Avoid this theme. Laden, bloated, intrusive, heavy on the server. You’ll be dunned by the theme owner, it has requirements to change the wordpress memory settings, it requires plugins beyond all sanity …the problems are too many to list. The size of the download should warn you, straight off. A friend installed this on his site, and I’m in process of trying to clean up the damage.

    Hi CyberCobre,

    Increase the WP Memory Limit is a standard practice in WordPress and you find instructions also in the official WordPress documentation (Increasing memory allocated to PHP).

    Here is the link:

    Try to run (any) the theme with low memory is a critical error. It is like try to run a car without fuel.

    If you are a boat dealer, we recommend also use our boat dealer plugin.

    We have hundreds of users, our theme works fine.

    Please, remove this bad review. It is not fair. Respect the work of other people.

    Wrong. Very few themes require this, and those which do are all heavy on the server, use page builders which purposely store the website owner’s content input through them connected to the theme, which, if the theme is deactivated, then causes that content to disappear.

    If you deactivate our theme you don’t loose your content. You can do that. Don’t worry about.

    Check your memory available.

    Our theme check memory available. When the available memory is low, we alert the admin because work with low memory can damage the databases and also show blank screen.

    When you use a simple theme like twenty sixteen, the theme request no too much memory.
    Boat dealer theme have more features and request also boat dealer plugin. Then, needs more memory to work. More features have the theme, more plugins you activate, more memory you need. Your server have the memory, take it. Why run the site with low memory?

    Default wordpress memory is only around 40M, is too low. We usually increase this to 124M e sometimes 256M.

    I know no too much themes take care this, but we do. We have also a function to increase the memory (make changes in wp-config.php file) for you for free. Before to make changes, we make a back up of the file (wp-config.php). You have option to restore the original wp-config.php if something go wrong.

    Also if you deactivate our theme, your wp-config.php is safe, we never touch them again and your are ready to work with a new theme.

    We have many themes and plugins. In wordpress and envato marketing. All ours themes and plugins take care of the memory to avoid issues. We have more than 15.000 users and ours users like we take care this to avoid problems.
