Still Works 90% OK
By , for WP 4.5.2

Considering that this template has not been updated since 3 August 2014 I am impressed that it still functions as well as it does.

The only glitches I have so far noticed are:

  • Slides in the Nivo Slider now appear on the page underneath each other instead of in sequence (I therefore used just one static image here).
  • HTML editor not available by default (or this may have been a user error) - easily fixed by unticking "Disable the visual editor when writing" in my Profile settings.
  • After creating a child theme via the Child Theme Configurator plugin, all my settings under Appearance > Temptation Settings were lost & had to be re-entered (not a problem if you create a child theme from the get-go, as I should have done).
  • Hover effect on image thumbnails, whereby they turn to grey-scale & zoom slightly, only works in Google Chrome, not Firefox or IE (I also tested this with the official demo).
  • I note that the official demo on InkHive's site, as at May 2016, is still running on WordPress v4.4.3. Perhaps the fact that I am using the latest version (4.5.2) may explain some of the inconsistencies?
  • I must admit that I haven't had to work much with Customize, so cannot make any meaningful comment regarding photosite.de's concern. But the theme also provides a "Temptation Settings" area under "Appearance". I found the many custom settings available here all worked fine.
  • So, provided you are prepared to work around the few inconsistencies listed above, I believe this template is still very worthwhile.

    Got slightly confused by widget management, but works well :)
    By , for WP 3.9

    The Temptation theme has fixed widgets in a sidebar which seem unmanageable - but that's only until you choose your own (you cannot do without sidebar)!

    Otherwise it's a nice theme, easy to set up and no problem whatsoever with WP 3.9 :)
