To be honest, I have a strong sense of betrayal this year, and I am growing dissatisfied.

I also spoke on the forum.

Paid templates should be updated at least once every six months.

In fact, some of my current templates haven't been updated in over two years.

Even if I change to another template, the template is not updated and a problem occurs and I am very confused.

That's why I was worried, but this year I persevered and renewed my license.

But if this situation continues, I will break up with 'joomshaper'.

I hope next year we will be able to understand the feelings of our users.

Sorry but i have to say that your Text is a big bang to the head for a lot of US.

We truly value your input and appreciate the role you have played in helping us succeed.

If you would do so you would never bring up sppb4 with Tons of Bugs and Front editing only. Nobody asked for a frontend only. For me a big year of headache because i have to learn how to build up Websites with WordPress because your Tool will not fit my needs as a developer in the Future. Gonna make this decision when my subscription is about to run out. If sppb4 is still in this shape like now i have to say goodbye and thank you for 5 years and over 100 Websites i have built uo with IT.

Got to agree with Kweb, sppb4 was like a giant middle finger to the existing customer base, it’s not something that we’d consider being proud of. I even took the step of not upgrading customer sites from 3x (and even downgrading others) because 4 is so poorly made and unintuative to use.

Please take the flood of poor feedback in the forums as a wake up call, and rethink the complete redesign of the product, you threw away a perfectly functional product in favour of this buggy mess.

Like above I’m debating a complete departure from the Joomla ecosystem as well because the quality of this product, which was one of the only decent ones on the market has fallen so sharply.
