Option 1: You have bought something which is NOT a WP theme

Option 2: In your downloads click download and select ‘Installable WordPress File Only’ & use this. (if you cannot see this then you have not bought a WP theme).

Option 3: find the theme folder and add it UNZIPPED to WP contents >> Themes using your FTP

Yes – think how you cateogorise, sort and organise dynamically a blog/review setup in WP – all of this needs to be done manually in HTML.

- You will need to create a brand new entire HTML file for every review and upload it via FTP each time as well as modifying the index or blog page to link to it again each time.

- Comments won’t work properly

- Membership is not possible

- Basically anything that requires a database (which is everything in WP) is not there

If you have the time and the budget then you could always hire someone to convert it to WP for you or add the PHP needed to make it at least more controllable via CMS or databases.

Someone did it looking at the comments on the item (although their link is dead), so maybe email them or the author to see if they can help (it does look like the guy who did it already did a pretty poor job hence why its not working)

Well the transition will mean removing all your existing site. you will need to copy all content (images/copy etc) over to the raw code of the new site.

there is no admin panel so all editing and changes are done by modifying the website code itself.

the new one would not have an active functional blog. You can create posts and a master directory page BUT they will not be as connected as a WordPress set up

Rejected for sure.

It don’t validate

Typography is miles off

Design feels out dated and nothing especially original

Same people for team members just looks lazy

you can’t use logos like Microsoft etc

Speaking as a buyer more than an author – it might be interesting to some that we have not (in nearly 1000K purchases) not ever intend to buy one of the mega multi version themes.

Without doubt the best themes we have used form here come from the likes of Tom, ThemeBeans, Ruben, Umbrella themes etc. they are simply more functional and less of a distraction with out the potential to be bloated or over crowded.

I am not detracting from the quality or effort that goes into the massive themes, and fully appreciate the ‘marketing’ potential especially to less experienced buyers who see quantity (irrelevant of the quality) over anything else.

I would hazard a guess that 80%+ of people who buy these huge themes use an exact replica of one of the demos with their own content (and in many cases a bunch of irrelevant content that is not necessary but that fills the gaps), rather than ever making use of the potential of having thousands of options and add-ons.

Again we are in no position to pass judgment on this as we do not sell here but thought it would be interesting to cast the opinion that sometimes these on mass products are actually a deterrent rather than a bonus.
