Yeah, just when you are about to launch a revolutionary product, just in the same moment, the other party is about to do just the same!

How fortunate !!!

@YatinMulay I used visual composer, sadly I don't think it could be usefull, its incredible cumbersome,  from what I saw about DMS is like day and know, not worthy of comparison.

Dreamweaver should die a painfull death.

I don't question anyone's ability, i don't pretend to know which one knows and which one doesn't, I just hate old software.

@arpowers @John Petrowski Not counting that the majority of themes doesn't come with an import option and you have to figure it all out by yourself.

Theme lock-in is awfull really.  You guys nailed it on all points.  I love to improve my site with a new theme, but I learned the hard way that any "custom code" or [tags]] inserted into the artciles goes to the trash can as soon as you change the theme.  Now I'm super aware of this and wont use anything in the article writing that comes included in the theme, since I KNOW that once I change that theme, I will have to correct more than 400 articles and that is not a posibility.

So, basically, we are all stuck,  ( i mean, all people that use themes).


I've never bought a single theme that i didn't have to re-code, modify or change a sustantial ammount.  Don't get me wrong, I love to code, specially css  but somethings this challenge is too much for my limited time here on earth.

I always felt that designing a web exactly the way I wanted I would need all the time in the world, and that is not a posibility.


Things always gets in the way,   DMS seems cool, i's important to establish how the rules will be, there will be free content?, licenses?.  Should be interesting to write an article about that.

To end, I felt identified with each point you expressed on this article, specially the "Crap" part of installing a plugin or buy one and then found out that the coder did a piss awfull job at coding with common sense or using a fine structure,  css's  inside css's ,   classes that goes to 3 different files at once,  !important in the wrong place... someone feels the pain like I do ?

The thing is, if we can get this all out of the equation, what will be left to custom-code  for the lovers?.  I mean, custom-code in a clean way.

Also, what are the implications "performance-wise".  Because I pretty much end up disabling javascripts not needed and modifying themes just because the guys doing the selling were thinking more on the "beautiful" aspect and not the performance aspect. How will DMS manage the javascript files, css customizations and so forth?
