I tried many other themes, but I keep on returning to Weaver II. For me it is the best, because it is easy to customize almost everything. Explanations of the functions are clear so I did not need any support (until now).

Caution - Weaver II Upgrade
By ,

Weaver II theme listed as Google Attack Site. I have personally had to restore 10 websites as a result of Weaver II 2.00 upgrade. Caution - Do Not Upgrade unless you enjoy malware on your website.

Hope they fix it soon, but for now........Do not upgrade.

Without the malware............Great theme.

very customizable - great to work with

I did my first website ( reinecke-naturfotografie.de ) some years ago using xhtml, css and jquery. This one ( gruene-linden.de ) was the first using cms - and it was easy work after all using your theme! Took some time - but I could realize most of my purposes.

(Would have appreciated an RSS logo :-) )

Best wishes,

Maren

PS: I hope this theme is supported for the next Years - WP is developing very fast... :-)

Needs Thumbnails for Facebook & Google Plus
By , for WP 3.6

Hi, I installed this new Weaver II and I love a lot of it's features. Only thing, is when I share my post to Facebook or Google plus, it doesn't show my featured image as a thumbnail for my posts. Can you please help me fix this? Having thumbnails increases traffic to sites and it's very important to have!

Weaver 2 is excellent!
By , for WP 3.5.2

I am a newbie that has been around a little while.
I have only used 3 themes and tried 3 others (2 of which broke from neglect).
Weaver 2 is VERY WELL taken care of, which I really appreciate. It is very customizable with a forum to find answers.
It is so popular that there is a lot of information available all over google.
I particularly love that I can install my own header from my hard drive - easily.
color changes are easy as well
there are many options for sidebars
it is very widget friendly
and there are several child themes built in!

When I am ready for a paid theme, I will use the pro version, I love it that much!
This has been a real FIND!
Thank you for your hard work and your wisdom!!!! Mary

One of the best themes for WordPress. Respect the author.
A small review on the Russian here -

Works well & is responsive
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's very flexible and has many features that I wanted. No problem accepting my desired plug-ins and it allowed an easy child theme. It works great on every browser and device that I'm been able to check it with which is a wide variety.

Flexible and a nice base of user in their support forum

Just chiming in to say I am a big fan of this theme. I use it as the starting point for every site I do and love its power and flexibility...and how strong it is in the area of optimizations for different platforms. For example, you can have your mobile users see an easier menu treatment with a click of a button, and all that hard work of keeping the site looking good on any viewing platform is done for you.
I can do everything I need to do without ever touching a post or page.php file, or editing a custom css. It has hooks to do all that from within its powerful admin interface.

I add all my CSS customizations to a Custom CSS section, and it saves them in one spot. Then, when they tweak the theme for things like better mobile support (which it is already great at) I can update the theme just like any plug-in, and using the "Weaver II Theme Extra's Plugin" (Wish it was built into the theme, but isn't, so make sure you add this separate plug in too! - thank you Bruce Wampler) you can reapply all your styling, and you are good to go.

The WeaverII subthemes are not very different from eachother, which is disappointing, and might make you underestimate its power. I wish the subthemes would showcase some very different menu options and layouts...but don't be fooled..just create a custom subtheme, and give it a chance. It is fantastic, and I will not be building any more sites without it!
