I went in and had a look.
Just confirmed that this theme is a long way from prime time.
Don’t get me wrong, I know where you want to be. And I think you would have watched the video I posted of the Moodle sites I have had running for over 4 years now with thousands of students gone through it. Plus being a tad bit older then you I think, I was around silicon valley in the early ninety’s doing things that lead to how we use the internet now. but I am not here to blow my own trumpet.
As a lecturer now, I teach Project Management. And one of the things I tell my students is to build systems that can be duplicated. Then build a system that teaches others how to use these.
With that in mind,take some time out and have a look at one of the H5P’s I use in class.
I think this relates to where you are at the moment and with luck you have not bitten off more than you can chew and burn out.
Since we made the decision to shift we have taken on the Astra theme with learndash and using the Divi builder.
By having this little course at our hands..
We actually have a site almost ready to roll and expect to have a few courses rolling within another view weeks.
Compare this to the 6 weeks we have been trying to tame your upgraded theme.
I actually had a Brazilian who is a fantastic Webdesigner have a look at the backend of what we were doing with your base and was see if he was interested in having a play.. I gave him access for a few days and he suggested that unless we were prepared to spend a lot of time and money he was not interested in joining up with us.
Thus, your point about the 100 simultaneous logs in costs are mote.. especially these days.. Once again, as an idea.. We have just spun up a moodle and onboarded 4,000+ students across more than 100 courses.. and are two weeks into the usage and are very comfortable with the loads.
For the site I made the video off, it’s running off a Bitnami\AWS T3 and handles hundreds of logins in and can be set to expand if need. costs run at is $US35-$US50 a month.. So we know that cloud services now are very affordable if you want to do a bit of backend admin.
big hint there.. by using Mac’s youtube video’s and his course.. that’s where you want to be.. use the power of the influences to build on what you have got as a base..
but if you just keep it as a closed shop. Then how can you expect a large base of uptake..
Anyway.. Keep at it and debug the hell out of this so that it settles down.. as I said, its got potential but as you admitted yourself.. you’re going to take a hit as you can not show any “complete” finishes.. no real working sites that have uptake from a community that can support others and take the pressure of yourselfs..
Wish the team well..
Will bow out now and just watch it unfold and come back in 12 months’ time once it settles..
I understand what you are doing as we have just onboarded more the 6,000 students out of a Google class setup into a new Moodle base. We were able to do this within 6 weeks with more then 100 courses.
I suggest you look at this and set up something like it to showcase a full set of a course in your system.. as so far all the links provided within your site here do not showcase this.
Plus can I suggest you work on your affiliate program so that you can get someone to actually showcase a working site in Youtube as there is no one that is doing this.. We have spent hours looking for a review video.. but apart from your channel, there is none.
Thus, while you are well priced,
For us.. development “opportunity costs” and “real man-hours” to get this theme up and running is not looking good for ROI.
re: Refund.. its fine.. you deserve this as I do understand the hours that you are doing on getting this coded.. I am sure in a few months time you will have it settled so I may run a development site to keep an eye on it.
Please keep “K.I.S.S” in mind on everything you do..
If a client can not get this up and running within hours or a day.. you will lose them..

After conversing with a few other people around the world and see the lack of support here. I can not see us carrying on with this theme.
So I will bow out now as this is going to be way too much work for us to get up and running.
You have to be realistic about what you are doing in that you are offering something at a price point at is lover the completion but really we can see how slow the site is and how long it takes to get something up and running..
So we have decided to go with Astra and learndash.
As while they are more expensive to start off on, it is quicker to get a working system up and running and there is more community support going on.
I wish you luck but I have to leave a 2-star rating on Themeforest as I am disappointed that we have wasted more than $2,000 in man-hours alone and not even got anything up and running.. yes, this is how much it has cost me just to get my normal development staff to work on the creation of the front page and getting to learn the system..
It is just too slow and got too many hidden problems that we as users should not be dealing with.
This should pretty much be a case of being able to get up and running in a few hours\days.. especially since we have courses ready to go..
Also do you realise you have Indian spam porn sites leaving messages in your FAQ area?
this alone was a red flag for us when we were looking for help with your forums.. if you can not control this then what hope have we got as a business in getting something we can trust up and running and build a working relationship with you. ?
For those that may come via a google search, we can see that this post is more than 24 hours and no uptick.
Which means that this theme does not have a support community going for it.
As per the post above.. I will test this via posting into Guru.com which I have used for a number of years on projects and had some great programmers across the globe sub-contract for me.
This will tell me is there is actually anyone out there apart from the two here in this forum that are doing any work with it.
I really want to love this theme, but as per my request for help on the other thread. If the main dashboard has problems and as a user that just wants to get something up and running quickly, at this moment I could not recommend this theme.in reply to: WPLMS customization – Freelancer wanted
Wow, I put the effort in to respond and more than 12 hours later nothing..
If you can not handle the workload you guys really should get community support pages going.
I can see via my posting also for freelance help within this community that there is no one that is working with this theme..
Ok, I will run a test and see how we go in guru.com for a freelancer.. this will tell me if there is actually anyone out there working with this and or has worked with it and made it successful.
Sorry team, starting to lose confidence that this is worth putting time and effort in to as if this was a ROI decision right at this stage it would be a no go.
Did you check that?
It is just linking to the module page.
Not working like an “accordion: which is what the quick codes in the course panel edits is showing.
If I want a link to that page it’s easy to do..
This is the Cert IV page with it done from with in the LMS-Course editor
I put out a call in your section for a freelancer and not sure if there is any support for this theme out in the “wild” so to speak..
You seem to be the only one that is coming in and doing things and so I am wondering if it is such a good idea to keep going with it.
I will post into a few of the freelance coding sites and see if there is any uptake on it.
If not then I have to make a judgement of it it is worth carrying on with it.
As we are a month into this build and there is not a lot to show for it.
It may be just the case of stripping it all the way back to base and just use elementor to build all of it. And then fingers crossed no upgrades break any of it.
I think this is still why I am worried about spending time to build any courses in it and would only think about using the H5P\Video\scorm and stream.
This way there is a wrapped package backed up.
Is there a section we where can link at messages that others have posted so we can build a community of users?
If you are really serious about this you should think about building something like the moodle community so that we can come in and share our tricks..
Just a thought for the big boss.. as many minds make light work.. 🙂
ok, I think I have answered this myself on the dashboard..
As we get to it logging in via the web press site.. not coming into it via our host which is via Bluehost portal.
I will pop through login details and let you have a look
I am talking about the “New 4.0 admin dashboard”
Also we are starting to get pissed off with this theme as we are wasting too much time on it..
Can you please some in and look at our site and sort out why it is not working.. this is a clean install and I have taken down the old site so we can start fresh and as you can see we have done nothing and it is showing this type of codes in course we have not even edited it.
so.. the questions has to be..
What is the quick way to get to the Dashbaord for edits on courses?
We need to deal with why all this is showing in Hex and not in actual writing..
