I've recently encountered significant challenges with this plugin and theme. Despite the regular updates from WordPress, it appears the developers behind this plugin/theme have little interest in keeping their product up-to-date. As a result, I've faced major compatibility issues that not only disrupted my site's functionality but also rendered it inaccessible on multiple occasions. In the realm of web development, it's crucial to ensure that the tools we use evolve in tandem with the platforms they operate on. Regrettably, this plugin/theme falls short of this standard. I've wasted valuable time trying to troubleshoot and rectify these issues, only to realize the root of the problem lies in the outdated nature of this product. I strongly advise potential users to consider more regularly updated alternatives to avoid similar frustrations.
