The customer support is simply top shelf.

I do wish one could customize the social networking sites to make them more current.

Great theme with excellent support!

A great product with excellent customer support. Very quick response and more than willing to go the extra mile to solve any issues.

for Bugs

I have been using Listify as a Theme for approx. a year now and have a pretty good view of what it delivers. In line with what most say, the code is good and clean, documentation is weak, and you will need a lot of other plugins to build a useful platform. Support is typically quite helpful (thanks to John!).

However, with the recent version, there are some problems that don't seem to get fixed and I had already flagged to support, who passed it on to their developers. This relates to the map on a listing shown on the sidebar (even if you don't place it there) and to the fact that it seems that user avatars have been removed and there is only a consolidated option for company logos (something that used to be separate before). This isn't shown on their demo version, as it still uses their old version. I have to say I find it quite troublesome that there are invasive changes to the Theme and you are not notified in advance and neither is this covered in the changelog, it's like letting your customers run over glass and hope for the best. So you find your page suddenly not working properly anymore, which is frustrating at least. I have also followed up and understand that developers haven't fixed this yet. I also found an issue that when you make a selection on the start page and search, amend the service in the drop down service on the search result page and go back in the browser, search again, then the 2 dropdowns start conflicting with each other, showing different values - I had to hire a developer to fix this. In the end, I would have rather paid twice the price and have a more professional theme that you can trust & rely on. If it wasn't for the code quality and John's support, I'd rate this less. If you buy this Theme, make sure you budget in additional plugins and hiring a developer.

Update:
It's now February and nothing of the above has been fixed after > 3 months.

for Design Quality

Wow! I have to be honest, I'm usually against using ThemeForest themes as I find them bloated and generally a pain to work with. I usually use Genesis Framework and try to stick as close to WP's editor as I can. But Listify is different.

This is a theme that has been developed for a single purpose: to build an awesome listings website. It is so simple to set up - you can literally have a listing site up inside an hour. It's pretty customisable, too.

I found it really easy to work with and I'm really impressed with the finished product, but one of the main reasons for the five-star rating is the support. I've contacted the team on a number of occasions and they have always replied promptly and with helpful answers.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy this theme again. I already have two licences. Great theme. Restored my faith in ThemeForest a little!

for Bugs

Do not buy this theme. We have had this theme for 6 years now and every year they seem to disable an included plug in and then ask you to pay for it now.

They now are making us pay for updates that used to be included when you bought the add on plug ins. We have had a plug in that updated for 3 years without a problem... now we have to pay for a yearly update. This company is robbing their paying clients. Don't buy this they will leach every dollar they can from you.

for Customer Support

I increased my rating due to the technical support, as they are trying to help as much as they can.
Thank you

for Customizability

We've been working with Listify for months as the basis to launch a new business. It provides a very modern and intuitive user experience, which ultimately makes it easy to use by our customers. It's ability to integrate with a lot of other plugins also enables you to build a complete business around it. Its customization capabilities further enhances it's usefulness to meet the requirements of a business.

The Support has also been extremely helpful (shout out to John for his great help). They get back to you in a timely fashion with the necessary help. If we were to provide areas for improvement, it might be with the documentation. It's OK, but with some additional research and trial and error, you can get through it. In general, there's enough there though to make you successful. I hope the Listify team will keep coming out with more enhancements, etc to make it an even more powerful theme. Good job folks!!

for Code Quality

I've used Listify across several sites of varying sizes for years now, and always found that it's a very good theme to work with. The code quality is great and the support team is always useful.

for Flexibility

just a theme that does almost nothing, and pushes upgrades

Author response

We have recently made updates on our theme and pushed for upgrades that fixes most bugs. Please let us know how we can help you to get the best out of the theme.

I hope this helps!

Kind Regards.

for Customizability

This theme is no longer updated, required and recommened plugins not updated in years, demo content not uploading, obviously not a theme to rely on.
