Easy to use, looks great
I was a little intimidated at first when I installed this theme but it appeared to have the items I was hoping to have for my website. I am very new to this website design but I am enjoying learning and it was exciting to see how my site developed as I made my changes and made it mine. Try it out, you will love it.
This is a great theme to use for a directory website, would love more content boxes though
The Evolve Theme is relatively easy to create a good looking website. Make sure photos for Carousel are the same size!
Unfortunately, mobile versions of website have title overlap problems that I haven't been able to correct.
i would like please to know how i can change the color on the back ground of insered pictures?
Actually it's on greay color.
Quick setup, full versatile, and great support of the team!
I've tried a lot, but this is awesome!!! Thanks!
First off, it's a beautiful theme and I like how it looks for my site. I ran into a few issues, though, that make it less than great.
One thing I noticed when I first installed this theme was the notice that any updating to the theme itself would cause all custom settings to be lost -- probably an issue with all themes, but I hadn't seen that type of notice anywhere else. Then, when I tried to create a child-theme the Live Preview customizer wouldn't save and publish the changes I made so I continued to use the original version of the theme. I tried to get help with the child-theme problem and was met with a level of condescension that wasn't necessary -- and no help for fixing the issue with the customizer.
I discovered that the theme included an option to backup the settings (not very good documentation to make this obvious) and found that the process worked well for both the original theme and the child-theme I was running on a different site. So well, in fact, that I finally decided I could afford to update the theme. Unfortunately, the updated version changed the process for importing the backup file -- it's now a copy & paste process rather than uploading the exported file -- so I wasn't able to import my saved settings immediately after the update. That left my site looking a mess until I could figure out how to get a readable copy of the settings to copy & paste. Again, the child-theme came in handy because I was able to copy the settings from there faster than waiting for support to help me. (And the response was that I needed to get a better file reader for my desktop.)
Finally, it's important to have the Redux plugin installed and activated or you'll have zero theme options to play with, including the settings import/export process.
If you keep those things in mind when you choose this theme, you can get a very nice looking site. I would also recommend looking over all the support requests for this theme and make sure you're comfortable working with the problems and implementing the solutions offered.
For a intermediate WP site designer its always a challenge figuring out what goes where and how to get your content to look like the demo of the theme.
I was able to change the theme from a box theme to a full width theme, center the logo at the top of the page, change the fonts, all in the first 3 minutes of installing this theme. I was really surprised to see the negative reviews.
I will tell you that before I installed the site, I'd already created my pages, installed all of my plugins and updated everything so I was ready for a clean install. This theme didn't disappoint. Now the time I would have spent trying to figure all of this out I can use for more creative aspects. And I can be assured of reaching my deliverable deadline which is in two weeks! Thanks for a user-friendly theme.
If you want just error, headache and more bad things. OK start using this theme.
