Support » Theme: Franz Josef » Quite lacking

  • I used the old Graphene theme on over 40 websites that i made, but had to abandon it because it was quite old fashioned looking and most importantly not responsive, so i had to move on to other themes, then one day i was wondering if the makers of that theme made anything newer and better and for the most part they did, unfortunately the old Graphene problems are still present, like the fact that the slider is useless unless your site is just a blog, because you can’t use individual images and links, just like in Graphene, but at least there i could replace it, but here it’s just not gonna work (not gonna be screen wide just site wide or even worse, just content/post wide)

    The fact that old free Graphene features are now premium plugins also doesn’t sit right with me, even if i don’t need them, but i understand why.

    Also why aren’t the additional recommended plugin links, install links instead of download links ? i don’t need all the additional steps to slow me down and to take up space.

    Graphene also had very impressive color options, much better than even paid themes, apparently something like that is coming soon, maybe I’ll give Franz Josef another try when that happens, hopefully the slider will also be usable by then.

    EDIT (26 months later):
    Seems nothing much has changed, still no color options plugin, none of the structure on the front page (below the slider) is actually part of the theme (unlike with other free themes, where it is), as far as i understand all that was built using the premium Stacks plugin (also by Silverks) which looks a lot like the Elementor plugin (which is free).

    I installed the Additional Options plugin, but even with that, the options/settings are very limited, for ex. there isn’t a single typography setting, the only color you can change is the background color, so if you have a dark logo forget it.
