Support » Theme: Weaver Xtreme » Weaver Xtreme not ready for release

  • I have been using the Weaver products for 4 years now. I have purchased the license to install the pro versions on my customers sites and have developed dozens of sites using Weaver.
    This product is not worth installing the free version, let alone purchasing the premium version. Stay away from it until and unless you see a lot of good reviews newer than this one.
    Bruce Wampler really missed the target with Weaver Xtreme. From the initial install, the primary widget area does not respond properly and dissects the content in to two misaligned contents and/or displays oddly when the page is re sized. You cannot easily navigate the options, and generally, the theme simply does not work well.
    Keep using the old versions of Weaver, or check out some of the other options, but before you buy the paid version, try the free one and display it on various screens. If it acts odd there, just think of the problems your site visitors are going to have.
    Three thumbs down on this version.
    UPDATE: I spent more time checking out this theme since Bruce has abandoned his previous well respected theme to just see if I was missing something. I am more confused than ever after seeing some 5 star reviews here. When I enable any full-width sub theme, the primary widget display corrupts, sometimes just breaking up, sometimes throwing the content into the page area. If you try to edit the widgets through the customizer, the items do not display unless you add another widget, then delete or modify the existing ones, then save, then go back and delete the one you add, then go back and delete the one you added again.
    This kind of behavior should be a real red flag to any developer. I have always respected the input from Scrambler, but really can’t see how something this buggy was ever allowed to hit the WordPress download section.

  • Asking in the forum so we can help figure out whatever problem you encountered would have been more productive than ranting about something that is not a general problem.

    We simply are not getting anything like this reaction from our literally tens of thousands of users, so this review is quite confusing.

    Note the the sidebar/widget interface from the customizer is all due to the implementation by WordPress core. I would agree there is something of an issue as the Customizer Widget menus apply ONLY to the current page, and it is really hard to add/remove widgets in a rational manner. Going to the Appearance : Widgets interface works as always, and does not confuse.
