Shoutout to Support at Weaver Xtreme Theme

Last Update: October 26, 2018

Problem has been resolved. This issue was with my browser not the theme.

Read the full story at Weaver Xtreme Support Forum

Out of the box, Weaver Xtreme theme may not look as pretty as some. But it's the most versatile free theme I've discovered since I started creating websites way back when. When using Weaver Xtreme, you too can make your website look exactly the way you want.

When you install Weaver Xtreme you'll discover that there's a lot of subthemes to choose from. My personal preference is Plain Full Width.


You can also select the Customizer Interface Level to suit your own level of expertise. So if you're not very technically minded you can choose the Basic option which is enough for most users. I'm a geek so I use the Full Level.

My websites look absolutely nothing like the Weaver Xtreme demo.


But I digress.

Even though it's a free theme the level of support is outstanding. For not the first time, I've gone to https://forum.weavertheme.com/ to seek help with a theme related issue. This time it was a trivial matter of the permalink not displaying properly when editing a post. Trivial or not, the developer (Weaver himself) has taken a personal interest in my problem and offered to look into it on my website. Yes, I've given him admin access. Apart from this time being a test website so I have no concerns with almost anyone being an admin, I know from previous experience that I can trust Weaver. Yes, he personally went in and fixed a different problem I had once before.


I don't have the premium version of the theme. I don't need the premium version of the theme. It's just so versatile I can do anything I want using the theme's customizer, plugins and Custom CSS without upgrading. Last time Weaver helped me I offered a donation and was given the details for his favourite charity. I'll be donating again this time.

I'll update this post when the issue has been completely resolved.

Hi, Marion ,thanks for sharing. I've installed the Weaver Extreme theme and the Weaver Extreme Support plugin, which apparently I need to access the subthemes. The question is: How do I access the subthemes to find a full width subtheme?

Also the images I got when I opened Weaver Extreme before installing are nothing like the one at the head of your post. Any help much appreciated..

Activate the theme then go to Appearance > Weaver Xtreme Admin. You'll find lots of settings there, including the subthemes, and then you can use the Customizer.

Good Morning Marion,

That is nice to hear there are helpful developers as I did not make that experience myself.
In Jan 2017 I chose TheNotes Lite theme for both my websites. From that moment on everybody always tells me that I have a floating or rolling down header. Also that I should change the Admin Icon next to my post into a small photo. Well, this is not possible, these "problems" are theme related. When I contacted these people a long time ago I was told to upgrade to premium first and that I refused.

I'm sorry you're experiencing less than stellar support from the theme developers.

As you can see Marion I have survived. As I like the rest of my theme I learned to live with these things, after all, what is perfect?

HI Marion,

Kudos for the find and share!!

I'm wonder have you ever tried the genesis themes, Jay seems to like them just wondering (not looking for a flashing sort of thing) but look to provide a pleasant look for my visitors.

I still have one of the free themes from a starter member haven't put much thought on a final theme still working on building the site.

But I image within a month or two will by getting serious on the theme and finalizing the website for continued growth.

Thanks for posting this, :-)

Calvin

Marion ,

You must have misunderstood what I was saying I was not suggesting Genesis themes LOL

I was wondering if you have ever used them and your thoughts on them vs the Weaver themes. :-)

Sorry I did not word the first comment correctly,
Calvin

I haven't used Genesis themes myself although I was once an admin on a website which used Genesis. I didn't get to play around with the look and feel of the site so I'm not in a position to say "yay or nay". Weaver is versatile enough to do anything I want with the design of my sites, but some people want a more cookie-cutter style.

Appearance > Themes > Add New and use the search box to find weaver

I just did it on one of my siterubix subdomains so I know it's available here. All the free themes come from WordPress.org
