  • Was impressed with it. Installed on a live site with good traffics. Massive crash minutes later – likely conflicting with W3Total. Couldn’t revive the site even after removing the theme and all the plugins. It leaves behind some corrupted files in W3Total/DB that will prevent the site from even accessible from the backend. Other than few pages of cached blogs, nothing else is accessible. This theme will corrupt cached files of W3Total, no idea whether it’s js/css minimization or what. The theme owner has no clue. The whole site has to be completely wiped out. Never experienced any theme like this before. Usually theme don’t work, you just delete them, and it will fall back to the default theme.

    This is not a theme. It’s more than theme, you can see how it takes over the customizer like no other theme. It also can suck hotlinked images right into the front page to display as thumbnails (this is the biggest attraction why I choose this theme). Guess that’s why it can crash a site beyond repair.

    I hope the owner can make it stable. It is the only theme I could find that will magically display hotlinked images (without even saving a copy thumbnail) into the frontpage. Good feature, perfect for high traffic site like mine. But it killed my site.

    Horrified by the experience, but I still think they have the right idea. Keep up with the good work. I will come back a few months later to see if problems have been fixed.
