Pro Styler ProStyler WP theme -- does it work?

22 replies
I bought it but I have not tried it.

I DO hope it works! I hope it lives up to its sales page claims!!

If it does, I will also (unfortunately) be AMAZED!

I have gone though *countless* WP themes that do NOT live up to their claims.
I find out that they were put on the market BEFORE they were even moderately tested! That biz model seems more than a little suspect, but hey -- seems that's the industry standard -- make all the "early adopters" into unwitting, and unWILLING beta testers, AFTER they have handed over their $$$ to the theme's creators!

I REALLY hope this one works!!

I'm gonna try it out -- but before I waste more time on *another* potentially disappointing and useless theme, I want to see if anyone out there has already used it, and has discovered it's pretty bug-free.

Anyone? Yay? Nay?

PS: This is yet another MAJOR launch, and I'm the 1st one posting in the review forum?
I would've thought there would be a long thread about this product, already.

    Hi Tim

    Not purchased as yet - due to the same reasons you have mentioned. To often we have the big sales blurb - followed by a buggy poorly supported product.

    I really like the look of this and the demos load & work well across all formats (well my ipad and iphone anyway), so it has great potential.

    It would be great if someone who knows their coding, could endorse this as it would make the difference between sitting on the fence and buying.

    BTW did you buy any of the 3 OTOs and were they worth it?

    I just bought it yesterday, though I didn't buy any of the OTO's. The theme itself has a LOT of features! I'd have to dig into it more, set up a couple sites and use it for awhile before I could give an honest review, but I'm happy with it so far.

  • I don't suggest buying themes from internet marketers because they are dead end themes that will not be supported.

    Test me in this, name one theme sold by an unknown internet marketer that received at least 2 updates? You would be hard pressed to come up with one.

    I buy into themes based on reputation first.

      Hmmm...you have a point. They have a feature within the theme that updates it automatically. If they don't charge for updates at some point, how will they continue to make any money from the product in the future, especially if customers unsubscribe from their list? If the updates are being done automatically there's really no reason to remain on their list, right?

        i'm also very interested , but i wonder about update in the future and i have witness marketers create and forget......also the same peoples they just create Total Flex wp theme not long ago about the same theme , i wonder if they choose to just build a new one and forget the other.
        They look good and promising , but support is everythng in the long run.

      Hi,

      I am not unknown, i have been releasing wordpress products for a long time. I always update my stuff i supported my client panel plugin for 3 years until it became impossible with wordpress changing the entire admin area.

      Many customers who buy my products will tell you i always provide free updates.

      But i can understand why you would feel like that, But reputation is everything to me and this has been worked for over 9 months i released an early version of this called WP Total Flex and guess what all them customers got this new version.

      We will make this the number 1 theme out there. I've already added tons of extras to it and have my developers working on tons of new elements. I use my theme myself i use this theme for my own clients.One of which >> Underwater Vision - Leading the way in Underwater ROV Inspection

      Best Wishes

        I just have to make a comment on this. I love Michael's products, they are better then most marketers out there. However I feel that I wasted my money on WP Client as it doesn't work anymore and I used it for a few clients so I had to back track and fix the relationship with my clients. Yes Michael supported it for 3 years but then gave up. I loved this product so much that I would have paid for a working update. So I hope Michael doesn't give up on Pro Styler after a while or when wordpress makes a change as I bought the front end and all the oto's. I have bought to many products where marketers say lifetime updates then you don't hear from them again until they have another product for sale.

    Most of my sites have been simple one page sales letters so
    I had no need for anything fancy. But now those sites are
    not mobile friendly so I have to change whether I like it or
    not.

    I was looking at Optimize Press but got this theme instead.
    I've been through the training videos and will be updating
    my sites. I think it is a powerful theme/tool and I haven't
    seen any complaint threads so far like other launches.

    I have one criticism for Michael and it's a common downfall.
    When creators of a software does the training videos they
    assume too much. I think that tutorials are too fast if you
    are not familiar with Wordpress. Also the videos which
    should be independent actually depends on if you have
    watched the previous videos (yet are touted as self contained.)

    So for example, the presenter hurries through the "Advanced"
    feature tab because it was explained in the previous video.

    I also thought that the graphic package upgrade was built into
    theme and not a separate download to access from your desktop.

    But overall I'm very impressed by this theme. I also got the
    first upsell package.

    Hi Ray,

    Thanks for jumping in and being honest. I have been looking at also getting a basic wordpress training course for members and eventually i want to also provide a written guide for instructions. These are all valid points and i appreciate the feedback it will help me make this even better

    Best Wishes

      I would not recommend these themes. I have bought it and it is not as easy to use these themes as the sales page say it is. Just my two cents.

      Hi, time pass by but the instructional videos are Always the same ,TOO FAST AND DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND, it's a pity 'cause the theme is promising but just need better instrictions.
      The guide never materialized in spite of cusstomers request (not a big deal to do...)
      It seems like most of the themes sold by marketers are having big problems and the promise of life updates are kind of ....
      I purchase the theme but i feel like i better get another one from a more stable company with reputation and support .
      Frank


      News: i went in the member area and found videos tuttorial ,explaining more or less anything , i haVE TO SAY that this theme as a great potential and i hope they keep updating 'cause in my opinion is a winner ( with some more feature...)
      anyway i like to say that the tutorial are ok . Just to balance my previous post.

    A friend bought this I saw some of the video tuts...on how to use this by the creator to be honest wow many videos are so rushed....I noticed he presumes ( a lot) you saw other videos beforehand in the one he is now talking in etc...then trying to find the right one is hard he refers to and no logic labels for the video name!

    Plus and many times throughout he skates over things quite a bit just because he knows The theme.... sorry but users don't though! And I felt lost many times as he moves so quickly with his mouse AND talks fast... does not explain or as said presumes ( a lot!) you know what he means Frankly we don't!

    For future demo's videos...these themes builders (many now on the market) can be time consuming/hard work to figure out so PLEASE, PLEASE SLOW DOWN. talking, and with your mouse and moving around the interface and explaining stuff and stop presuming people know AND EVEN..how to even use Wordpress...!!

    Several of us all said same thing way to fast in many tutorials we saw and people are going to find this frustrating How to use videos and hard to follow.
    hey that said, the theme looks good and what you can do be interesting how it gets received by people REALLY using it, (bugs to be sorted, new upgrades and developments with it etc) it as seems the year of theme builders coming on the market and what you can now do with them and hence quite a lot of new competition out there....

    What is WP Client? A previous Michael's product? Was it also said to be lifetime updates?

    If so, why is it not supported... I got the OTO... But found it not as user friendly as it says on the sales letter, maybe I did not go through the video tutorials enough...

    I bought it and one of the OTO's and requested a refund according to the terms on the website.

    According to your sales page:
    If at any stage in the next 30 days you’re not loving installing this on your money sites you can just shoot me an email with “refund” in the subject line and I’ll return your investment NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

    So far, I have been ignored. Next step is the PayPal resolution center... I hate to do this but Michael Formby has been unresponsive.

    Thought I'd resurrect this one since V2.0 has now been released. Any thoughts on how this theme performs? The sales copy indicates that it is being used on 12,000 sites or so, for what that is worth.

    I did some informal research on sites using the theme. About 30% were high quality sites with lots of graphics, but the rest looked like an ordinary Wordpress site. So what that tells me is that you better be pretty good at Wordpress if u expect to create a killer site with the theme.

    I bought the ProStyler theme and I am very happy with it.

    It has a bit of a learning curve but nothing major and it is fairly simple to use. The videos were helpful and support was decent. Definitely worth the money. Very versatile you can do so much with this theme and set up on unlimited sites. Cant go wrong for the $37 I paid.
