Been with Point for a few years and it never happened to me that Point Theme may loose out it's popularity in the market, but sadly to say, the latest release of version 2.0 might broke the spell.
It changes all the customizable core code naming convention, structure changes and took away some basic fundamental functions and etc.. Oh my, they should have termed this as a brand new theme rather that a Point theme upgrades.
Sincerely hope that the higher management could take a serious look at the issues and made the necessary steps to fix the numerous technical glitches and make Point V2.x the most success among the rest.
Hope to see the next update be a proper one!!
Can we cheer on with the Point Theme, Mythemeshop?
Depuis la dernière mise à jour de février, quelques petits problèmes sont apparut.
Il était beaucoup plus facile avec des options thématiques panneau.
Problème de fonctionnement sur mobile depuis mise à jour, problème de menu sur mobile...
Dommage, car c'est un jolie thème wordpress avec de bon emplacement pour les annonces publicité.
Vivement une prochaine mise à jour pour rectifier tous ses nouveaux problèmes.
Si les problèmes continuent, je changerais de theme wordpress
It was way easier with theme options panel.
It has gone a bit difficult to customize now.
But still, its far much better than other themes out there.
I've been using Point for a few years, and generally like the way it looks. I can live with the frustration of it resetting all my widgets (other reviewers have mentioned this) each time I upgrade.
However, the upgrade to Point 2.0 has been a minor disaster. I assume there will be a quick upgrade to 2.1 to fix the mistakes they have made, but the latest version was certainly not ready for release.
i just discovered all my widgets were gone and featured images in all my posts aren't working anymore across the whole site after upgrading and am really annoyed about it as i upgraded a busy site and discovered it was suddenly completely out of whack and the widgets kept not working properly for hours I sat up till 3 am trying to fix it.
The other thing that really suck's is the upgrade process from point to pointpro, you loose all settings, like tracking codes, customisation, widgets, logo's ads... Everything! this totally wipes out any benefit to upgrading to the pro version and makes the upgrade process really onerous on a busy site.
It seems they don't get that some peoples sites have a lot of traffic! and busy lives!
It seems that the only way to do it without causing a bunch of troubles is to set up a whole new instance on a dev server and then go through the backend page by page copying and pasting all the settings etc and hope that you don't miss anything.
otherwise the theme is great, but I wish they would fix these serious faults, I can't believe they make it so hard to upgrade to the pro version, Crazy!
One of my favorite themes.good
Point has a serious and annoying flaw. Everytime you "upgrade" the theme, it resets the entire design and your widgets are removed. You have to start over each and everyt ime setting up the widgets, making sure the settings are the same as you had them. Entering all the info for Facebook, Twitter, image rotators and links. It's a sad hassle.
A free template like a Premium!
I Like This
Though I probably will go ahead with the free premium theme being offered for having tried this theme, it gets my 5 stars! Actually, I do have a project that this might be just perfect for. Stay tuned for an update with my live site when it's ready.
