for Customizability

This is a beautiful theme with several built-in options, but the lack of customization and difficulty navigating customization is rather disappointing. I'm so sad about this because I debated purchasing this theme for quite some time and was really excited to see it in action.

-Customizing typography throughout is time-consuming and I wasn't able to figure out blog posts.
-The carousels were also frustrating as I have multiple categories for each of my posts and all of them kept showing up on the homepage (when applicable to the layouts). I opted for a layout I didn't really want because of this.
-Also customizing colors and styles for links and fonts was also not a simple task.
-Using the Meridian Styler wasn't very helpful because not all elements could be customized.
-Carousel images did not reset to the same size by default so it wasn't visually appealing.
-No way to set a number for the small carousel, which would mean that I would have to un-tag a post to keep order on the homepage (I have 300 articles under "featured" that I changed to "carousel-small" like the theme documentation stated. Previous themes allowed for me to limit the number(.
-In the customizer, something was causing the page to freeze, I believe it was the small carousel trying to load the maximum posts because setting a limit number wasn't available.
-I didn't see a way to include different content boxes (different sections based on categories, tags). It seems that it's only one grid block of posts.
-Widgets: one of the recent post options also displays all the categories of a post, making it a muddled mess.

If you're looking for something that I a quick setup because you don't really want to do too much to the theme, this is great. But I was under the impression that I would have way more theme options overall.

There must be something wrong. I can not open the visual composer neither placing anything on the startpage.

Hey there!

The theme is not compatible with Visual Composer, and we never said it is. If you want to make any changes you will need to use the WordPress customizer or Meridian Styler.
