First Impressions

I’m not ready to leave a review yet. Have just been using the theme one day – after a lot of research, pre-sales questions with several themes, and purchase.

Having used VC before with other templates, compatibility with VC was a big factor. Likewise, use of Revolution Slider was a big plus. I’m familiar with both – they work – and clients like them (especially VC).

Positive Impressions + Installation went smoothly + Documentation is excellent – both for install, config, demo data + Support area (forum) is a little overwhelming – but content seems to be there if you can wade through the questions (lots of history). That’s positive overall

Concerns - Visual Composer seems to be a “bolt on” – there are NO template elements or designs included, at least not with General UDesign Demo data. From support research, my impression is the original code was crudely “retrofitted” into VC vs. “built from the ground up” using VC, elements or custom elements. This seems to be a downside of going with an older theme. In the past, I’ve picked newer themes – which seem to leverage VC with their demo content, so it’s a good “starting point” for ideas. With UDesign, the “demo data” (home page, pages, etc.) are essentially unusable as starting points if you want to use VC. - Essential Grid seems to be a “bolt on” – at least with General UDesign Demo data. Support says that EG may be used with some “advanced elements” but the EG config is empty. So, again – useless starting point.

I will make this work for now. Too early to “bail” – and too early to say “Yay, this was an amazing purchase.” Jury is still out.

Thank you for the honest review @ctfuqua

Just wanted to clarify something regarding the various demo sites provided for import, if you notice when you over over the demo items: http://idesignmywebsite.com/u-design/u-design-theme-demos/ I’ve specified which demo was built using what technologies, some were build with just core theme features, others with Visual Composer, third with Essential Grid or all of the above, etc.

Having said that I think you’re talking about the main demo, that particular one was NOT built with VC plugin, it’s purely theme core features (shortcodes), etc, and Revolution slider. We decided to keep some demos stay clear of any plugins like VC because of the feedback we got from some users who do not like working with page builders like VC and hence prefer working with WordPress default editor and theme’s core features which in their opinion helps with page loading speeds, etc. So just keep that in mind if you want to try one of the other demo site :)

Should you have any issues or questions please don’t hesitate to start a new support thread in the forum where our support specialists can help you out.

Regards,
Andon

Ah! That’s helpful to know.

I might suggest adding something to the header section of the page that explains this too. I missed that detail on each grid item. But, who knows – still might have missed it there too ;)

Thanks!

Good idea, thanks

Hi, I have using Udesign (happily) since 2013 and had it customised/updated by a web developer, however, it appears he’s no longer available. The theme needs updating again, as well as attention to some specific fields. I am able to carry out uncomplicated work but because of the customisation, I can’t safely update the theme without causing a glitch. Does your support provide a similar role or are you able to recommend a suitable web expert who can provide the level of assistance I’ve been receiving through my previous web expert? Thank you, Bill
