Support » Theme: Adventurous » More than one h1 tag per page and absolutely no support from author

  • All pages are producing (at least) two h1 tags each, which – taking into account the way they are being used – could be quite bad for SEO.
    And, maybe more importantly, the theme author provides NO support.

    Adventurous theme is build in HTML5, CSS3 and Responsive Design and multiple h1 is fine in HTML5. You can even check with default WordPress theme like twentyfourteen https://wp-themes.com/twentyfourteen/.

    About our support, we provide free support from our support forum at http://catchthemes.com/support-forum/ and you can see we are very active on it and we usually respond within 24hours.

    Multiple h1 tags are fine in HTML5 if there is a reason for that.
    What you did was use one h1 tag with the same text on all pages, and at least another with the page’s title. What was your reason for using them? Why are they beneficial and not harmful?
    As for twentyfourteen, it is a theme with a worse rating than yours and plenty of issues. Furthermore, WordPress is notorious for interpreting HTML5 the way it likes.

    Concerning your support, it’s great that you offer it. However, on this page:
    https://wordpress.org/support/theme/adventurous
    there are a bunch of unanswered questions. Other developers offering support on their website state so at the top of their theme’s WordPress support page. You do not. I will improve my rating if you either reply to those posts or create a highlighted post forwarding users who seek help to your forums.

    Till then

    @trizonia: Sorry we are proving support from our free registered support forum in our site at http://catchthemes.com/support-forum/

    This is just a design of theme and perception of SEO. TwentyFourteen is default WordPress theme by WordPress.org theme and many themes are based on it. Sorry that this theme didn’t fit your requirement.

    The fact that TwentyFourteen was used to create other themes does not mean it does a good implementation of SEO rules; developers who used it might simply not have noticed or not cared.
    And to prove that the practice they used is nothing to be proud of, they’ve changed in in TwentyFifteen.
    Your “perception of SEO” must be based on something – it’s not magic.

    It’s your right to provide support in your site and not the WordPress forums, but as long as you don’t notify people seeking help in the WordPress forums, I consider it bad support.

    It’s your right to provide support in your site and not the WordPress forums

    It’s right because support from authors has always been 100% optional. Authors can provide support on their own site if they choose to.

    That’s not “bad support” it’s just different.

    In my opinion it’s bad support not to inform users who seek help on WordPress forums – which is the expected place to seek support – that you don’t offer it there but somewhere else. And the fact that support is optional doesn’t change the fact, i.e. the fact that you have the right to provide bad support doesn’t stop it from being bad.
