I have been very frustrated trying to set this up - and I have bought many wordpress themes over the years, and am no stranger to setting up wordpress sites.
The theme documentation is not intuitive at all - it took me multiple tries to get my site up and running and even now I am unable to get the site looking like the demo. I was excited to use this theme on my website but now I am just bummed out that I spent so much money on this with nothing to show for it. Wish I could get a refund, but lesson learned. I will not be buying from fuelthemes ever again.
Sorry, you feel this way, but I see you are getting a 405 error, which is a server permissions error, not related to the theme: https://httpstatuses.com/405
Nice looking theme, as many recognize one of the most visually appealing , but still needs some work on basic functionality, and that supposed to be portfolio theme. It is hard to belive that if you want to present for instance 38 portfolio items, there is no way to do it except manualy enter 38 items ids, first you shold find them, and then carefully tyoe them. This make this theme almost unusable for managing any decent number of portfolio items. This theme should asap implement option that portfolio items can be selected with at least some of this option: – show all (yap, you cant even show all) – category – individualy select items in dynamic list. It is funny that even though this basic functionality doesnt exists, the category filter for the front side, by category, it does exist. But to use portfolio u must manually enter tens or hundreds item ids :D I hope that this would be implemented asap.
Second problem is lack of proper profesional documentation, and users regulary are confused with the demo import, as it takes long time, but no visual hint is displayed that anything is happening at all. Also, recomended php settings are misleading because it really depends on hosting. There are some serious issues with that demo import, even though it does work, most people spend to much time resolving the issues.
Thanks for the feedback, we love feedback! Actually, that's one of the things that are WIP for the next update!
Demo Import is the same for all themes, and it's mainly related to your server settings. There is nothing much we can do about that.
This is a fantastic theme! Eye catching, easy to set up and customize and the customer support is UNREAL. The theme worked well straight out of the "box", but there were a few minor tweaks that I wanted, but couldn't quite figure out how to do myself. Customer support took care of it promptly and helped me figure out the exact custom CSS I needed to make my website look exactly how I envisioned. Awesome.
