Really superb theme. Beautiful and great features. The site I made w/this theme turned out great. Customers are happy and that means everybody's happy.

for Bugs

I used to be a big fan of salient but it seems to be having more and more issues such as the WYSIWYG editor dropdowns not working, conflicts with Ninja Forms and just bloated in general.

Combine this with the new requirement to purchase support every month and you get a theme that really costs $60 + $42 every 6 months. Actual costs = $144 plus $84 every year. Now I could grab every theme on studiopress for $375 with unlimited updates and support.

So long Salient, it was nice while it lasted.

Hey haschop,

There is no known issue with WYSIWYG editor dropdowns when using the current version of Salient Visual Composer - that was an issue fixed many releases ago. I see you opened a ticket in regards in august, which was responded to with the solution that you never followed up on. However don't see any tickets or comments regarding the issue you were experiencing with ninja forms so I apologize we never had a chance to assist you.

Please note that there is no "requirement" to purchase support. It's completely optional and can be bought when needed after your free half year period if you still need additional assistance. This is also a global change imposed from Envato, not something specific to Salient or ThemeNectar.

Also to clarify your last point, Salient has always offered unlimited free updates for life - no support package is required for that. Users who purchased back in the release of 2013 still have access to the latest version with no additional fees :)

Cheers

Lots of customization options is always great. Many header / navigation layouts. Plenty of ready made templates to choose from.

Their modified Visual Composer plugin is nice but lacks custom blog post layout like the original Visual Composer plugin.

It's also based around shortcodes which is a double edge sword. Great for laying out a post quickly with cool effects but will break if you choose another theme later down the line.

A great theme overall.

for Design Quality

Great theme, one of the best I've worked with. Brilliant design and easy to use. Keep up the great work and don't make this theme too complicated or bogged down with bloated features and we can keep using it for years.
