Downloaded and installed Runway WP, looks interesting, has potential, but cannot seem to really do much with it. Will keep an eye out for your documentation.

Hi Mactsolutions, good luck with staying with Ultimatum. I dumped it months ago, and glad I did. I noticed that the developer was extremely slow on responding to support in the forums. I had been inundated myself with support requests via Skype as I had given out my contact details to help out.

I have been using Catalyst Theme with Dynamik since, and never looked back. I have never been so happy to have made the jump. The learning curve was quick, and the framework has not given me a problem. And right out of the box the styling is quite stunning.

Good luck with your ventures into a better and more secure framework. By the way, I am “cmwwebfx” in the Ultimatum forum and Catalyst forums.

Ciaran

EDIT I feel I made a terrible mistake to have suggested others to use Ultimatum, and and I am sorry for that.

Thanks mcollins! :) We are looking at a buyer reward program. Currently we’re getting staff trained and shifted into areas where we can be more active with our buyers and authors.

Awesome.. I will take you up on your offer of some nice rewards (backdated of course, otherwise I will hold off on all my purchases till the rewards come in… lol)

Wow, 400 purchases! You deserve some Hero-badge (in opposite to author’s Elite-badge) and 5% discount.
I haven’t cracked the 400 just yet, but I have just bumped the number up by 1 more purchase a few minutes ago. Thus having now 498. :)

Maybe an idea would be for Envato to reward customers at 100 purchases milestones… each 100 gets you a better reward each time. It will promote more sales for sure.

Can I vote that when a returning customer gets to 398 purchases, then Envato offers the last 2 purchases of anything for free to make the 400 milestone.. ;)

Oh, and as a customer, I always rate my purchases. My profile can be checked for any that have not been rated… Bet you won’t find any.. :)

Just 3 more items and I will crack the 400 purchases mark. What medal do you have for that? LOL

I looked at the showcased sites and those are one of the ugliest designs i’ve ever seen.. :| oh..it’s 3 months old :D

ROFL… then again, it is showcasing the general user that wants to build their own website. If you want to see a semi decent site built on Ultimatum look at one I built recently… http://patapuss.com.au

Still a work in progress.

I really find this Ultimatum Theme like any other theme you can find elsewhere. It really looks odd and very common.
Like any other theme elsewhere? Common? I must be missing something as I can not find anything like it. I swear by it because of one thing… it is quite unique. Please show me another theme/framework like it, and I will buy it to compare. I am up around $6000 in purchases in the last 2 years, and yet to find something similar.
