I have a list of complaints, but this will actually help you out to improve the theme. I did purchase this theme a couple of months ago, but I did not use it for the project yet.

Today I thought to go for it and do the project, but found too many things that require fixes and improvements. So let me begin:

1. Why did you add child’s theme style before original style? Custom changes should always go to the end, because maybe I want to override something from your style and then in this case – I’d have to use !important which is not desirable.

    <link rel='stylesheet' id='stylesheet-css'  href='http://ia.dev/wp-content/themes/boroda_child/style.css?ver=1' type='text/css' media='all' />

    <link rel='stylesheet' id='gr_style-css'  href='http://ia.dev/wp-content/themes/boroda/theme-options/style.css?ver=1' type='text/css' media='all' />

2. You have two more `CSS` requirements that are separate. Why do you separate them, it’s two additional requests? How about simply injecting them into your main `CSS` file? I am aware that one is pulled by selecting theme layout and the other one is built by setting options using panel of theme options, but still you can inject them in the end of your main `CSS`. Storing 3 requests into single request.

    <link rel='stylesheet' id='gr_classic_style-css'  href='http://ia.dev/wp-content/themes/boroda/framework/css/classic.css?ver=1' type='text/css' media='all' />

    <link rel='stylesheet' id='gr_options-css'  href='http://ia.dev/wp-content/themes/boroda/framework/css/options.css?ver=1' type='text/css' media='all' />

3. In the `style.css` required by WP, you import two stylesheets. Why would you even do that? This particular `style.css` that goes into theme root serves only for theme information from docblock. This is two additional requests…

   @import url('framework/bootstrap/bootstrap.min.css');
   @import url('framework/css/main_style.css');

4. jQuery included in `<head>`. Put it above `` instead. From your functions.php I can clearly that all your jQuery plugins do not have set jQuery as dependency. Instead you require jQuery as first script and of course it is set to load in `<head>`.

5. The Menu that I required fixes for when I purchased theme is still not doing it’s job. It’s practially very buggy if you keep clicking. It goes to the point where all menu items disappear.

6. Footer is bloated with script requests. If all are required, store them into single file. If they are optional, inject them in single file on the fly upon configuration.

I am not trying to be a bad guy, I rated your theme 5 stars because I like design and uniqueness. What I don’t like is the code. If you don’t mind fixing those? I’ll still leave it at 5 stars because it deserves that rating.

Let me know what you think?

Hi GuRon, I’m very interested in your Boroda theme & intend to purchase one for my blog. I just have only 1 concern, hopefully you can help to clarify it.

The theme is perfect. The only thing that bother me is that at initial loading, it takes quite a long time to go from the loading screen (as below) to the main site. http://s182.photobucket.com/user/baoquynh132/media/Screen-Shot-2015-11-23-at-9.57.43-AM.jpg.html

Is there any way that we can turn off this loading screen? Or is it mandatory to have?

Cheers, Q

Hi, yes, you can disable the loading screen. Thanks.

Hi, I have some problem if the home page with portfolio I use duble preview post + single preview post.
www.foto370.com
I would like to try with the last update, I have v 1.2. How can I update the theme and keep safe my customisations?
Thanks.
Nik.

Hi, first post can not be double. This feature “masony script”.

Hi, will it be possible to have the full screen layout on the home blog page without a sidebar and then have the sidebar show only when viewing a post?

Yes, in the options you can choose.

Live preview does not work?

Sorry. Now is work

Thanks. Another question; Is it possible to have the twitter feed at the bottom instead of Flickr? Would be great!

Thank you for purchase. Yes of course.

Visual Composer or any other shortcode stopped working

I have not changed anything in the theme and I checked on my theme “Visual Composer” works fine. Maybe did you again have problems with your plugin for “Visual Composer”.

And next time please write me in support.

Thanks

Nice them BTW. I can’t translate anything related to Follow Search and menu options.

Hi, what is your version of the theme? Thanks

I’m having trouble getting to support. Sticky post aren’t changing to larger size on my homepage. Can you help me out?

unfortunately the author does not keep his promises in updating the theme. there are some issues and bugs which should be fixed “in the new theme update”...that was 4 months ago! design of this theme is awesome,,,but without update and keeping promises…. i downgraded the review to 1 star..

Hi. Ok, let’s try to solve your problem. I’ll do it as soon as possible. Thanks.

GuRoN, Thanks for fixing my issues and helping me with the site!

You are welcome.

Is there a way to remove the blog date on the home page slider? Also, When i try to add a new blog post to the slider, it doesn’t show up

Hi, can you show me your webpage, because i don’t quite understand what do you mean. And please, write to me in support. Thanks.

I sent a support message this afternoon.

I tried submitting a support ticket on behalf of my client, but couldn’t be helped because the theme wasn’t purchased through my account.

Hi dear Guron, a very long time ago (when my support was still active) I wrote you about the fact the word “comments” is misspelt throughout the theme every time someone leaves me a comment on any one of my posts. Here is an example: http://mercurialmaiden.com/justice-came-whisper/ The issue was never addressed and hence never resolved before my support expired though. This has been something I’ve been trying to solve on my own but I can’t use CSS to edit your theme! (403 error.) I’d really appreciate a reply before I decide whether or not to renew support.. thank you.

Ok, i will update theme today. Thanks.

That would be absolutely great. It’s a minor error in spelling but it makes a world of difference. Thank you!

why is this $150???

Why not :) Beautiful theme.

It really isn’t that beautiful. I mean it’s nice, but it’s a very simple theme. I’m surprised this passed quality control from Envato at this price point. Very strange.

you got extra ”?>” on href in ajax.php

Your website is down so I can’t install one of the plugins it comes with? ‘An error occurred while installing GRN Boroda Widget: Download failed. cURL error 6: Could not resolve host: demo.themeguron.com’ how can I get this plugin which comes with the theme?

Live preview not work?
