Do You Hate Stupid? I Do!

Last Update: August 31, 2018

A few days ago I posted about my frustration with a theme. I absolutely loved the theme but it seemed to have a flaw.

It wouldn't load the home page or the blog page correctly. It kept trying to nest the images and posts inside of each other. Yet, it didn't happen all the time so I stuck it our a while think it was something I was doing.

I looked and tried at least 25 different themes but just couldn't find one I liked nearly as much as the other. I had sent a support ticket in on the other so I was hoping it was goping to be a quick fix.

The response "That is how Wordpress handles the pictures. It is not a function of our theme and we can not do anything to change it."

Huh? I get that some things don't work. It happens to me daily, well, more like hourly. But, I am not intentionally listing my non-working mistakes for sale.

I wrote back that I was confused and was curious why they were allowing a non-working theme to be distributed. This isn't a small company. They have a lot of themes out there. Eventually they replied that it works for anyone who doesn't use images on thier pages. LMAO! I hate stupid.

The good news. I was literally on about theme 50 trying to find something that worked for my site. I finally found a theme that I now like more after tweaking it. The funny thing was that last night at about 10:30 pm PST I couldn't get my last little tweak to work. I emailed support and hoped that I would have an answer by mid morning. I sent the request and started wrapping up for the night. Less than 2 minutes later I got an email from a live person in their support department who just happened to be online at home who solved my problem for me.

I hate stupid, but I LOVE great customer service. Yes, they got an immediate 5 star review from me.

Well, I am not sure what issue I will obsess about next, but I am glad this one is behind me..

My wish for each of you is that most annoying problem you have been fighting with wil easily get solved today.

Good fortune to all.

Hi Sharlee, I ended up using Customify. It is so nice and easy to make your own. I have a few tweaks to still make but I just really like the look and I have had tons of compliments from random people. You are welcome to take a look at my site as I have tweaked it quite a bit but I haven't done anything that wasn't free or included. I don't think I am allowed to post my site here but if you want to look just PM me and I will send you the URL
