Customer support is abysmal. Been 3 days since I have received a reply regarding an issue with their theme. Wouldn't recommend it.

Thanks timnguyen131 :)

for Documentation Quality

The theme only has 9 sample pages: aboute me, cart, checkout, coming soon, contact, my account, shop, shortcodes, style guide...
The sample data is very poor , you can not build anything from those pages...they should provide with all the pages shown in the "live preview" that we can find in themeforest...so i dont recommend this template. This is the answer i got when i have contacted them:

Hi,

Sorry, we don't include all the demo data like on the demo site.

Like menu "Features and sub-menu" or menu "Home sub-menu", this is a menu with a manual custom code on the theme that purposes for showing the features of the theme. So, we can't provide them in the demo data because this is for preview only. You could explore all the features of the theme through WP Customizer.

Best Regards,

I send you attached the pages imported with the import sample data option…only 9 pages. In those pages I cannot see the different options that you show in the previews that you placed in theme forest. I mean, there should be the different home pages templates, so I can take the one I like and customize.

It seems that the WP only imported the pages that are located in the menu “pages” … but…where are the sample data of the “home” menu? and those “post” menu…? Don’t you provide them in the sample data that the user can import? I cannot understand it, when I bought a theme I can always find all the options imported in the sample data, not only a few samples pages…

Thanks

Let me clarify about this.

Cited from your comment:

The sample data is very poor , you can not build anything from those pages...

Here's the final result http://theme.rootlayers.com/beta-minimalo/ once the demo data successfully imported where you can start working from. The features you saw on the preview https://themeforest.net/item/minimalo-a-minimal-blog-wordpress-theme-for-creative-websites/full_screen_preview/20468303?_ga=2.57589226.1972500159.1505881932-382502147.1505881932 aren't missing at all. The resides in the customizer panel (Appearance > Customize), and can be activated manually. We can't include all customizer variation in the demo data file, because technically WordPress doesn't allow us to have multiple values from single option. For instance front page variations as seen in the preview http://theme.rootlayers.com/minimalo/ under the "Home" menu.

You said "I mean, there should be the different home pages templates, so I can take the one I like and customize. ... It seems that the WP only imported the pages that are located in the menu “pages” … but…where are the sample data of the “home” menu?"

The homepage variations lies in a single option in customizer (Appearance > Customizer), thus we only can tie it with a single page. WordPress system works like so. This situation prevents us to create multiple home pages with their own active layout variation. So we can only provide a single home page, and users can set their preferred layout from customizer under the Appearance > Customize > Blog > Index.

This situation also applies on the header variations. Since the option isn't tied in the page custom field, but we put it in the customizer, the demo data only has one header layout. In the description we mentioned 6 header layouts, it doesn't really mean the demo data contains those six. But there's only one due to the option lies in a single option in customizer (Appearance > Customizer). You can easily switch it from default and choose the one which meets your fit from customizer panel.

We have an online documentation http://kb.rootlayers.com/minimalo/ to help you easier working with our Minimalo theme. If it doesn't help at some points, you can always contact me via email or contact form in our profile.
