    OK I realised my licence is out of date, so I wanted to renew – noticed it was $45 when last renewed, and is now $55 which is a lot for 12 months for whats now quite an old theme.

    Got me thinking – Catch has released a lot of themes since I originally purchased this one back in 2015.

    If I have to shell out $ I figure now would be the best time to choose a better theme – maybe somethíng a bit flasher / more professional looking?

    My website is https://www.gayundah.info and I welcome any suggestions that members of this forum may wish to make.

    Thanks
    Michael.

    @landyvlad: Hello Michael,
    It’s definitely better to switch to newer themes as they have more advanced and exciting features to work with. You can check out all our latest themes here. You can check out the demos and let me know if you have any questions regarding the themes.

    Kind Regards,

    Is that page in order from newest to oldest themes?

    Thing is I don’t really know how to choose what theme would be best for my website.
    It’s a history website about a ship from the 1890s onmwards.
    Any suggestions you might have to help me narrow it down?

    Thank you so much for your assistance. 🙂

    I’ve looked at the themes and the following are the ones I’m trying to decide between.
    Clean Enterprise Pro or Alchemist Pro. These do seem fairly similar, so a few questions on each please.

    Clean Enterprise Pro

    Q 1: Is it possible NOT to have the line at the top of the page (the one which shows “Any Questions .. etc) ?
    Q 2: Is there an image slider?
    Q 3. Is it possible, with blockquotes to change the colour of the quote symbol? Position of the quite symbol? Font, font size, font weight of the blockquote content?

    Alchemist Pro
    Q 4: Is there a slider?
    Q 5: Is it possible, with blockquotes to change the colour of the quote symbol? Position of the quite symbol? Font, font size, font weight of the blockquote content?

    I’d also be grateful if you have an opinion as to which of those would be best for the page I am running (gayundah.info) and why.

    As a suggestion, It’d be really helpful if for all your pro themes you had a grid with check boxes to show what features they do or dont have.

    Q re Gallery Plugin: It is mentioned as a requirement to have photo gallery on both of these themes. Is it free/included with the pro them or does it have to be purchased at additional expense? I’m currently using the free foogallery and it allows multiple albums on one page etc.

    By the way the catch gallery demo page isn’t currently working: https://catchplugins.com/demo/?data=b3BEbnJ1ZVpocXoxU0hvYXFLaGlWUT09

    @landyvlad: Hello Michael,

    Clean Enterprise Pro
    Q 1: Yes, it is possible to disable that.
    Q 2: Yes, there is an image slider section.
    Q 3: Yes, that is possible.

    Alchemist Pro
    Q 4: Yes, there is a slider section.
    Q 5: Yes, that is possible.

    Both the themes are equally good and easy to customzier. In my opinion maybe Alchemist Pro would suit you better.

    To know what features are available in the theme you can also check on the Compare tab on the Theme Page link. For Clean Enterprise Pro click the compare tab in this link.

    Catch Gallery plugin is a free plugin so you can download install and use it.

    Thank you for reporting the Catch Gallery demo issue.

    Let me know if you have anymore queries.
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    Thank you. As far as the ‘compare’ is concerned yes I’ve seen the free vs pro but I’d like to see a compare function which allowed comparison between pro themes. e.g. in this case between alchemy and free enterprise.

    So difficult to choose between these two. They are extremely similar.
    I’ll probably make a child theme as well so any modifications to it, aren’t lost when updating the parent. Maybe teh decider will be which menu style looks best 🙂

    Thanks again for your assistance to this. I’ll go shopping soon…. 🙂

    Hmm even the price is the same. The Enterprise pro has the nicest menu – that is the menu item in use is highlighted in green and the drop down has a nice green line above it.

    I’m happy to buy one of these but am stressed about which one to get. I presume all those things can be changed in any event, via css etc?

    Is one a better base for a child theme than the other?

    Sorry for the multiple posts.

    I’ve been through the specs of both pro themes in detail and I think the Alchemist theme has the edge for me as well.

    I just have a couple of questions please regarding a few features that are listed for the Enterprise theme but not for Alchemy.

    The Enterprise theme says it offers more slider types, specifically:
    Featured Slider: Image Overlay
    Featured Slider: Content Alignment

    Are you able to explain these to me please?

    The Enterprise theme also says it features:
    Site Content Style: Classic or Modern
    Menu Style: Classic or Modern

    Are you able to explain these to me please? Are they just ‘shortcut’ styles meaning there’s not necessarily a need to create a different style – can just switch between two?

    @landyvlad: Hello Michael,

    Featured Slider:Image Overlay is the feature to have an dark overlay over the slider image. You can control the opacity of overlay from 0 to 100.
    Featured Slider: Content Alignment is the feature to align the text over the slider image on left,right or center.

    Site Content Style: Classic or Modern Classic Style, Modern Style. You can check out the difference in these screenshots.
    Menu Style: Classic or Modern: The menu you see in the demo is classic. Whereas the hamburger menu is modern menu style.

    Let me know if this helps you out!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    I cant really see any difference between those two screenshots.’

    Anyway that aside, there are moer features that I want in alchemist pro than eterprise pro.

    Is it POSSIBLE to have the Featured Slider:Image Overlay and Featured Slider: Content Alignment added to the Alchemist them somehow?
