No flexibility. Lacks functionalities. Bad documentation quality. Theme has a lot to improve...

Front team responds and solves the issues. Like every software there are issue in the theme, but the team responds and address them.
As usual, MadrasThemes is the best, thanks for all your great work.
The design is nice, but we are finding ourselves fixing more bugs than normal for our clients. The potential is there, so we'll keep this on the backburner until more progress is made.
Thank you for your feedback. Would you please let us know what bugs you are referring to through our support? We'll help fix them.
The theme is extremely well thought out. With the large variety of pages and blocks this theme can be used for any type of business site.
The support is amazing. Any problem with the theme is quickly answered by the very considerate support team who has gone above and beyond. This is my second theme purchase from Madras and my earlier experience was similar. Thank you for your team's help - past, present, and future!
Loving the theme so far, it’s pretty brilliant to use Gutenberg blocks as this allows for easy customization also at CSS level

What a beautiful theme ! Gutenberg is a bit complicated but the support has been very helpful to make it easier to use Gutenberg. This is our third theme from MadrasThemes. Highly Recommended.
The degree of customizability is just very low. There are a few standard blocks you can insert in the document, a lot of features are lacking in those and you just can't edit the block without editing the code or implement custom CSS. I will reassess when the Elementor functionality is available. For now, not good enough.
This is a bit unfair review. A few standard blocks? We've provided more than 150 blocks. It would be wrong to compare Elementor and Gutenberg. Gutenberg's approach is different. We can only provide customisation options within what GB allows. We've also helped you multiple times with customisation and we were able to achieve what you wished. What Gutenberg lacks in ease of use it makes up for speed and also it is native WordPress.
Your review is more about how Gutenberg blocks works which is core WordPress than the theme itself. A Gutenberg theme can only work within Gutenberg's framework.
We will proudly say that our Front theme has more Gutenberg Blocks and options than any other Gutenberg themes.
Awesome Design and a large amount of components!
I cannot praise enough both the quality of this multipurpose theme and the author support!

By far one of the best support exp which i ever had. So well and friendly! I'm really glad, that i found MadrasThemes!
I liked the theme because of the design but it has some major flaws that I will list below:
1. Loading time
It way to slow it goes around 10 seconds to fully load. One of the problems is that the code quality is so low they use third party JS Libraries to render mockups which takes to much time and slows the page load, which makes users get bored fast and close the website.
A lot of CSS classes, assets, and code that doesn't need to be called slows the performance.
Don't take my word for it try it out yourself: web [dot] dev
or try it out with inspect element > network > load time
Even the title of the theme says "Multipurpose Business" But the irony is that I can't fit any template to my business because you can't even align the button or text as you want.
Most headers don't allow to update or add some custom background image "HERO X"
We are sorry about your experience but your findings are incorrect. To clarify:
1. Load Time - A site's load time is not dependent on the theme alone. It depends on how good your server is and additional plugins that you are using. Our theme is built using Gutenberg and works natively. It does not make any DB calls. Our total CSS and JS size is less than half an MB. As you can see in our description, our demo loads under 1s and the total size of our home pages are less than an MB.
Don't take our word for it. You can try it yourself by looking at our demo.
We've titled it Multipurpose business theme because it has multiple demos for varied business. Button is a core Gutenberg Block provided by WordPress. To say you cannot align a button or text is a reflection of WordPress core itself. You can add custom background to blocks. If you cannot, you can convert them into HTML and add them.
I understand that you are not comfortable with Gutenberg which is fine. We offer refunds to all our customers who are yet to be familiar with Gutenberg. You can request a refund here: https://themeforest.net/refund_requests/new
If you have questions related to our theme, you can reach out to us and we are happy to help.
