Re: 2016 & Ongoing - Why are there so many Terrible themes?!

And I am sick and tired of praising that theme!
If someone wants to say about it, use this thread here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=214498
Many developers (and I) have to deal - and fight - with that theme daily!
So, a clear Yes.
Correct, you say it: your are a "simple" user.psxgamer wrote: ↑Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:04 amReason I opted for journal is due to its flexibility. It's years ahead on everything else. I wanted to build a site that I can differentiate from the so many other OC websites. And that's exaclty what I can do with Journal without having to need any coding skill (which I haven't).
What the extentions are concerned. Several of the extentions I was using before, I no longer need because they are build into Journal. I know a lot of extentions are being modified to work with Journal, but even then... I have about 25 different extentions running. with everything running smoothly. If journal would be so badly coded this would never work.
As above. I'm no coder. I consider myself as a power user. And the only thing I can say about Journal are positive things.
What you want - and can expect - is a simple to use theme (template).
If you would be a "developer" you would run ..
Ever asked yourself from where they have the code?
For sure not made by themselve ..
Wrong approach!psxgamer wrote: ↑Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:04 amIf I would be the owner of the OC project, seeing how popular Journal is and all the features it has, I would try to acquire Journal, integrate it in my shopping cart software and sell this as a premium version of my free open source software. With the options Journal has, you could blow the competion out of the water. And the extra cash would help me to further develop my shopping cart to even make it better.
As JNeuhoff said before, the template developer decided to create his "own system".
Based on OpenCart.
But now full with code of many other free extensions!
And full of extra and double code and scripts and database tables.
If this theme - and their developer - would be so good as they are doing, then they can create a new shopping cart system and not OpenCart.
So, why they are not doing it?
