Is Platform Woth It? (6 posts)

    I have been an avid WordPress user for years now with just enough php knowledge to tweak a theme or really screw one up if I'm not careful! I have developed the habit of only being happy with a theme for 6 months or so because I always end up making a compromise when I pick a them (i.e. it is never exactly what I want). Of all the various themes I have used (and it has been a lot), I have only ever paid for one. Granted it was the one I used the longest but it still wasn't exactly what I wanted...or maybe more appropriately, there wasn't a lot of potential for growth inside the theme. Enter Platform. I love the concept of this because it allows you to tweak it to what you want and then still have the ability to make small or large changes as you want to grow. And there is the added bonus of being able to do it from the admin panel and not have to fool around a lot with the php.

    So, my question is this: Is this theme worth the $99 dollars?

    If you have paid for the pro version and have been using it, what do you like and dislike?

    And yes, I know how to spell "worth" but it is Monday morning... =)

    :) well, I'm the founder; but I'll just tell you to go to http://test.pagelines.com and try it.

    Also, read through the comments from customers here:

    In response to the comment about the cost.

    Finally, I'll add that the stuff we have planned for the framework in the future will blow you away.

    well, probably 100$ version is good, but free version doesn't have the basic features working such as Thumbnails.

    how can i migrate from free to pay version without loosing anything from my current content?

    @andylips - the free version should run thumbnails just fine.

    when migrating, all your theme options and customizations should be stored in the DB .. when you change to the Pro version all those settings will still be there.

    Just don't edit the core theme files

    as you can see in the topic http://wordpress.org/support/topic/squashed-thumbnail-images
    and website http://www.designrated.com there are problems with thumbnails.

    I have the same issue. they showing like that.

    for the rest, thanks for answering. will consider to switch to pay version as soon as site grows.
