for Other

GREAT out-of-the box design for a streaming service theme website.

Would be even BETTER if the theme were designed for use with Elementor Builder as well.

for Customer Support

Thank you so much for your immediate support , IBRAHIM..

I have upgraded my review to 5 STAR.. I should have contacted you before my first review.

It turned out that the problem was from my side. I apologise for any inconvinience my first review may have caused you.


for Design Quality

Hard to make it your own. Needs complicated translation instead of input fields in the Admin section to replace the terms "TV Shows", "Videos", "Movies" but works after spending hours.

WooCommerce incompatible (needs coding skills to make it usable).

Useless Redux Framework & buggy WordPress Gutenberg instead of a page builder like Elementor, WP Bakery, or Tatsu. Elementor works at least with single pages without any problems.

Header and Footer styles mostly need coding skills to make them useful. No real admin area options for both.
Canvas Menu in the header has no options for padding, placement (left/right), and icon (type of icon & size).

No logo setup in the Admin area. (Standard logo/Retina logo/etc. + padding options)

No Trailer functionality for video hoster as featured video instead of the featured image like in many other themes.

No Vimeo video options (only compatible through embed code).

WP ULike with lots of bugs (removable plugin).
Demo Importer listed as a required plugin after finishing the import (removable without problems). Demo Import should be included in the admin panel or under Appearance.

Author response

Hello there,

Thank you for your review. However to clarify:

1. The theme is designed for a specific purpose i.e. TV Shows, Movies and Videos. If you want to replace these, you are obviously going to spend a lot of time.

2. We never claimed WooCommerce compatibility. In fact, we answered to all our customers who would ask that our theme does not have any WooCommerce specific code.

3. WordPress Gutenberg is core WordPress and Redux Framework is for managing options. You can use the theme without Redux. We've also specifically stated that theme is built for Gutenberg.

4. Headers and Footers are standard WordPress. Uses WordPress menus and widgets. If you have inputs on how to improve, we'll gladly add them.

5. Adding logo is a core WordPress feature. You can access it from Appearance > Customize > Site Identity > Site Logo. No theme would be allowed to override this WordPress behaviour. This is Envato and WordPress's theme requirement.

6. You can add trailer through short description or long description.

7. We use WordPress's core oEmbed feature for embedding videos.

8. You can disable WP Ulike and use any other plugin of your choice.

9. You can always de-activate the plugins that you do not wish to have. You can dismiss the notification if you had not activated the plugins knowingly.

Hope this clarifies. Let us know if you have any other questions or need further help with the theme.


for Design Quality

Great theme, they are updating compatibility on time. It would be nice that one could use all the components within the Divi builder, so one can mix advanced Divi layout with this theme's great functionality.

for Feature Availability

I am using this theme for a website at It is a great theme for a movie or game database website. It is extremely full-featured, with lots of customization options, plus a great design.

In addition, the support that MadrasThemes provides is excellent. They are very fast to respond and resolved all my questions. I am extremely impressed!
