The Morpheus theme hasn't been updated in TWO YEARS.
I strongly suggest you DO NOT BUY this theme. It is NOT SAFE.
My website broke thanks to curly brackets no longer being supported since the latest WordPress version. Since the theme isn't up to date it causes a critical technical failure. Not to mention potential SECURITY GAPS that hackers exploit which the author is NOT CLOSING.
That teaches anyone the important lesson of buying a theme only from a company that is likely to sustain over time and not an individual or small group of developers.
This was a great theme, however with Wordpress 5.0 it has caused a lot of issues for many people including myself. Unfortunately their support forum has been abandoned and none of us are sure when this will come back.
So far working beautifully, so glad I chose a dedicated parallax theme, the big boats just didn't cut it, very lame results. Praying that the updates keep coming and this theme continues to get good support!! Thanks!
This theme incorporates a plugin (Layer Slider) for advanced functionality by another author. You can see this plugin in action in most previews.
I ran into difficulties with this plugin. The author of the plugin states that it is not compatible with the theme. I therefore wrote a support request to collision but never got an answer. Which is somewhat disappointing.
Apart from the plugin (and the support in my case) the theme is very well made.
Bad theme. Bad coding. Demo page has nothing to do with the files you receive. Very buggy. You need a strong background in WordPress and CSS to make things work. Many issues with the responsivity of the pages to the point that it feels as though it is straight from 2005!
I'm sorry you feel that way. The theme comes with a one click demo importer that if used will make your site look exactly like one of the demos. Then all you need to do is swap out hte content and customize it to your needs. As for responsiveness, the theme is very responsive, as you can see if you test the demos on mobile devices.
Also, our main support avenue is the support forum: http://support.smallfacemedia.com/wp-login.php?action=register .
If there is anything else I can assist you with, please create a new topic on the forum.
re: Portfolio _UNDERSCORE. I went to the support site--and see it's been a continuous issue for TWO YEARS? Why don't you simply fix it instead of referring people OFF of Themeforest??
Please understand: Morpheus is a GREAT LOOKING Theme--*on your demo*--and a super attractive buy for mobile--it's beautiful, BUT BUYER BEWARE: even for the average to above average WordPress user the documentation is inconsistent & lacking (yes, I went through it ALL) and the upload demo content can't be modified easily like other themes.
We are really sorry you feel this way, but that underscore on the portfolio item is a feature. The designer wanted it there. And there are instructions on the support forum on how to remove it, if one does not like it
As for the easiness with which you can build your website, I know the theme does not come with visual composer or some other visual building plugin, but the shortcode generator does its job quite well and I am always here to help with any issues you might encounter during the construction of your website.
We have done hundreds of websites and tried tons of themes but this one honestly has the slowest loading time I've ever seen. We tried requesting support to look into it since they have multiple complaints on this same issue but still nothing has been fixed. I find it truly embarrassing for my client to have to wait for their site to load so long, which reflects upon us in the end. If you are willing to fix this major issue that also affects their SEO, then we would be willing to change our stars but not until then, sorry to say.
Your homepage loads in ~3s for me, the main demo homepage (which has half the requests) loads in ~2s. As I have already told you, the other complaints about the site speed were related to the loading of resources from a "dead" server. And were resolved.
About the SEO plugin you use, which, by the way works with the theme, I went out of my way and spent quite a bit of time trying to solve the issue that only affects the admin area, even though we are not required to offer support for 3rd party plugin integration.
Lastly, you can give the theme whatever rating you feel it deserves. We do not respond to blackmail.
