Can author of this theme or admin suggest an alternative to this theme?
Can author of this theme or admin suggest an alternative to this theme.

I believe author is working for a major update or upgrade of this theme, but it has been years. And I still using this theme. Alot of stuff needs to update.

I really need an alternative to keep my site going, anything that is similar to Atahualpa will do. Need as light wight as Atahualpa. I will sure come back to Atahualpa when the author lanuch a major upgrade. this theme is gold, could make millions off it, I hope the author can really make it out ASAP.

Lately, what would be the alternative to Atahualpa for now? Any member can leave your recommendation down below. thank you so much!

I would also be interested in hearing some suggestions for a replacement theme. Atahualpa has been fantastic, but it is getting a bit too long in the tooth now and I think we've been spoiled with all the configuration options in the theme.

Is there life after Atahualpa?

Sorry I donít have any suggestions. I think Larry the other moderator started using Divi.

So nu update anymore?????? :(

juggledad Feb 24, 2018 02:39 AM

What kind of update do you need?

The big issue is tat a couple years ago the WordPress Theme review team made a decision that all themes HAD to use the customizer for theme options. To make Atahualpa do that would involve many many many hours of coding. One of the WordPress Theme review team members offered to do it for $4000.

Where would be the payback for eithor spending the time to recode it to follow there decision or paying someone to do the coding?

At any rate it still is working - i.e. I haven't seen anything that 'breaks' it.

I looked at Divi, but read somewhere that it is quite messy in its coding, making it very difficult to replace once it's installed.

Another one I've looked at is Elementor, which is open source and seems very flexible.

My main issue with most of these modern template designers is that they all tend to look a bit 'samey' - big screen-wide bands, lots of empty space and not much information or styling, requiring endless scrolling to get at the content. That's the main reason why I still like using Atahualpa.

I use GeneratePress and/or Weaver.
Both not for free. But as Atahualpa becomes as good as it was the programmer can make a lot of money for it. The 4.000 is just a small investment.

Only if Flynn was to start charging for it.

I investigated a lot of the new page-builder CMS's out there (Divi, Elementor, Beaver Builder, Thrive Architect)...watched a lot of tutorials, and read a lot of third party sites comparing them. The idea was to find something that offered a similar ability to adjust all aspects of a site as I have been with the many sites I've created with Atahualpa.) I eventually landed on Elementor (and am using the pro-version). It works indecently from any theme and is very easy to work with. The major difference in workflow, compared to Atahualpa (and by the way Atahualpa developers...I LOVE ATAHUALPA) and will continue to maintain, work with and tweak all the sites i've developed with it as long as it still works.) is I don't have to do nearly as much (mostly at all...) work with CSS and code additions. So much of the flexibility of Elementor is built right into the interface with the ability to adjust everything including the positioning of elements, a much easier and more robust menu system, and built right in is the ability to create, view and adjust versions of every page for different views (mobile, tablet, desktop.) I definitely think it's worth a look.

And just to be clear...LONG LIVE ATAHUALPA! I salute you Juggledad and Flynn!

Bad news for everybody. Juggledad has just told me that with Workpress upgrade to 5.5 Atahualpa will break. None of the links or things you have done to customize your page will work. There is a temporary work around by installing https://wordpress.org/plugins/enable...igrate-helper/

This is a warning to you all, though, it may not work for long....so time for everyone to switch to a new theme. I, too, have loved working with Atahualpa and thank Flynn, Juggledad and Larry for all their help and assistance over the years. I will be letting Atahualpa go with not a little grief.

Hmmmm ... Fuck ... today I got this warnings from jQuery Migrate Helper ...

* https://www.blogpool.de/wp-content/t.../ata-admin.js: jQuery.fn.live() is deprecated
* https://www.blogpool.de/wp-content/t.../ata-admin.js: jQuery.fn.live() is deprecated

... and saw this bad message, that this is the end von Atahualpa ... so much work to customize this theme ... all for the dustbin ?! ... BIG BULLSHIT

Any alternative theme to atahualpa ?

SharonJ Aug 25, 2020 11:04 AM

I am in the same boat as you are. 99% of all my customers' websites are based on Atahualpa.

I am looking into one called Mythos at the moment. Not half as good. But my problem at the moment is that the drop down menus are showing as top menu items. I am corresponding with the developers at Themeum to find out how to resolve that.

I understand that one of the moderators here, Larry, has moved over to Divi.

Considering that 10 years ago, Atahualpa was one of the top themes, this change to Wordpress is going to affect thousands and thousands of people. It is so unnecessary. :(

SharonJ Aug 25, 2020 11:05 AM

Merlin 1764, does that mean the jQuery plugin does not work any longer?

kdawes01 Sep 22, 2020 12:13 PM

If you are willing to edit one of the Atahualpa files, you can easily fix the problem.

As Merlin indicated, with WordPress at 5.5 and the "Enable jQuery Migrate Helper" installed and active, you'll get this error message...

your-path.../atahualpa/options/ata-admin.js: jQuery.fn.live() is deprecated

If you go into your Atahualpa 3.7.24 theme and open the /options/ata-admin.js file in a text editor, there are two lines that need to change.

Line 17 is currently...


  $("ul#bfaoptiontabs li a").live("click", function() {
change it to...


    $("ul#bfaoptiontabs li a").on("click", function() {  //  .live is deprecated - use  .on  instead

Line 26 is currently...


    $("a#import-settings").on("click", function() {
Change it to...


    $("a#import-settings").on("click", function() {    //  .live is deprecated - use  .on  instead
The " // .live is deprecated - use .on instead" isn't necessary... If I make a change to a theme file, I like to annotate why I made that change.

Please accept all the proverbial "If you make edits to your theme, you may break it... etc."

juggledad Sep 23, 2020 05:49 PM

kdawes01 - Nice fix!!

Looks like you have given Atahualpa a little more life. I'll try to post a updated release here in the forum tomorrow.
