    The theme is updated VERY RARELY Twice the last 18 months, and it was minor updates. Many bugs are not corrected. The support is good, but all they do is telling you to modify yourself the PHP and/or CSS code. They banned me from the support forum, because I told them several times what they don’t want to be told : they update the theme far too rarely and many bugs are not corrected ! Zero respect. I did NOT spam their forum like they say. I just posted my dissatisfaction about the missing updates 3-4 times in 1 year 1/2. Twice yesterday, a second time after they deleted the first post. Only 2-3 people who subscribed to the thread I posted to got emailed, and not “many” like they say. Not recommended at all.

    Love the theme, but can’t update a plugin that is required to be installed with it. Apparently I have to buy the license separately. Was not aware of that.

    There are many loop holes in this theme. My Site has been hacked many times due to this worst theme. With the help of Some Developers i came to know this. Never use this theme waste of money.

    The Visual Composer doesn’t work on this app.
    No updates, no answers from the producer. SKIP IT BY ALL MEANS. We’re struggling with it on daily basis. Wish I never came across this bunch of non-professionals.
