I use this theme for a client site with a child theme, and the last update was so drastic I had to revert back to an older version.
It's not appropriate to make changes like this to a theme that's been released as long as this one has. My client site cannot use the new version without hours of work to revise and re-style via the child theme.
Updates should be focused on security and compatibility. Theme authors should not assume that anyone using their theme wants a completely new look and feel.
So much problems, just don't install. Have a lot of troubles with id and classes. If you want beauty theme, just do it yourself, it's faster than use this theme.
It's a beautiful theme, documented there:
Exactly what I need, thanks!

After working and trying to figure out many various themes and templates, and trying to contact them I finally found Accesspress Lite, I was disappointed and concerned that I can not talk to them on the phone to describe how I want my website exactly to look like but when I start the chat, Eli the support rep was able to help me so quick and I felt very happy and satisfied. She understood what I needed and answered all my questions and concern. I am finally able to have a WordPress website. Thank you Eli so much, wish I found this theme sooner. :)
Where to start? This theme markets itself as idea for editorial magazines or newspapers - it doesn't work. Whoever designed it has no idea how magazines and newspapers function. For starters, it auto selects the latest post as the most prominent post on the homepage. Photo captions are problematic (you can add them but they then attach themselves to the top of the text of the full story) and whoever posts the story gets the byline. I have emailed them numerous times over the last week or so and nothing has been done. Upshot - I'm going to move to another theme.
After looking at many different themes I chose the accesspress pro theme for its clean and professional appearance. The theme is easy to setup and offers many customization options. The main disapointment was that the lite theme has a few customization options (e.g. for the slider) that are not present in pro theme. I guess everyone would expect to have all the options present in the paid version. Al in all though I would buy it again, because it offers the exact appearance I was looking for.
Very nice design, simple to use and lot of options to edit.
Good for new to word press.
This theme is brilliant - loads of functionality and it works well with them enabled or turned off. Clean, professional and works.
The facility to add custom css through the Theme Options makes building and maintaining a child theme really easy.
The Pro version has vastly more options so much so I haven't learned to drive it yet.
