Nearly 7 months ago Flyn told us that the job was almost done..........:confused:

After 7 years using Atahualpa in many projects I'm sad to leave Atahualpa, one of the greatest theme ever.
A responsive theme is a must nowadays, and Google will penalize sites not being up to date with new technologies.
Sadly Atahualpa isn't responsive...

I'm really looking forward for updates on this fantastic theme, hopefully soon. But for now I have to start looking for alternatives.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Atahualpa. I don't want to leave (and am totally unsatisfied with any other theme I've found) but with the 21st deadline looming, I am looking at what to switch to.

Sad, sad, sad. Hoping I get some news really soon that it's done. Anything??:(

Back at the beginning of this thread, Flynn mentioned Page Builder, which I discovered independently just over a week ago.

It gives amazing layout control over the center column and is completely responsive. It's essentially a widget framework, and you can load just about anything into the containers it gives you. It takes about an hour to learn the basics, and I reconstructed and transferred an old (non-atahualpa) WordPress site in a couple of days. There isn't much you can't do between Atahualpa and this Plug-in. Just lose your sidebars and use your imagination.

I tired to give them a donation, but the website says it's free and always will be - so this is not an ad.

email from google:

Is your site mobile-friendly?

Starting April 21, Google Search will be expanding its use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal....

Hi there, can I ask which page builder you looked at? I found a number when I did a search. I've had to move over to another theme pending a responsive theme from Atahualpa - however I did read that the theme I had chosen, was not interchangeable with other themes, so once you switch that's it....so i'd be interested in finding out a page builder that I could retain Atahualpa when the new version appears.

@tick9 - have you seen this thread: How To pass Google's 'Mobile-Friendly Test' ?

Any news on the coming Atahualpa 4.0

swimflyfast2 Apr 27, 2015 04:58 PM

It looks like this is on the same road as themeframe...:(

WebHeer Apr 28, 2015 05:06 AM

I switched to Themler, does it all you need. http://themler.com/

Any news on the coming Atahualpa 4.0? Likely to be within the next couple of months?

msg-meteorites Jul 5, 2015 02:41 PM

Is version 4.0 just delayed or has it been kai boshed?

I've got something like 30 sites done with ATA. But nobody wants a static "sidebar & header" site anymore (and when clients "think" they do, I tell them how poor their sites will look compared to the competition). I've built my last couple sites with X-Theme, and while I miss the awesome control panel from ATA, it's just light years behind a modern theme with drag & drop page creation, independent page styling, and full responsive design with all the animated stuff people like. Maybe the ATA team is about to blow our minds - something like X-Theme with ATA's controls would be the ultimate site creator for the next phase of the web. I'll cross my fingers.

WebHeer Aug 7, 2015 03:01 PM

Just three and a half week to go and than it is one year ago Flynn told us the job was nearly done.

alexmai Sep 16, 2015 06:58 AM

I think we really need a responsive theme that works well with the mobile ads. Mobile ads are getting larger shares by day, its very important to our incomes.

WebHeer Sep 16, 2015 03:29 PM

Themler or TemplateToaster do the job.

camsalis Sep 23, 2015 10:17 AM

I loved the Atahualpa theme also, and then it vanished about June 1, 2015, taking all widgets and plugins with it. I was not able to restore it, even after deactivating it, despite my dashboard saying that it was still active and working fine. Flynn, was there an update about June 1 that I didn't check?

Does anyone know if PressPlay will work better? So far it is doing almost everything I want except for updating the header background. It hasn't been updated in 2 years. Is it still safe to use?

jankph Sep 26, 2015 08:26 AM

I've used ATA since 2010, and I loved it, never wanting to switch, but tired of waiting for a responsive version, I switched to Responsive Pro from Cyberchimps.

ghl Sep 29, 2015 01:18 AM

Strange that nobody of the team replies on all these questions concerning 4.0.

WebHeer Sep 29, 2015 03:38 AM

Contempt of their customers. I paid for ThemeFrame, but you hear or see anything anymore.

juggledad Sep 29, 2015 08:46 AM

The only one who can answer this is Flynn the developer. Larry and I are just volunteer moderators.

dadadesign Oct 6, 2015 01:59 AM

I also love Atahualpa and have done over a dozen websites based on this theme. Over the last years the desire and pressure to design responsive sites have gotten stronger and stronger. Now, near the end of 2015, I am feeling I have to leave Ata and sadly start to search for alternatives.

ghl Nov 26, 2015 03:40 AM

So, Flynn, give us all an answer.

_kimberley Nov 26, 2015 09:32 AM

And what if I did make theme mobile friedly? Do I have to remove that first or does it speak for itself?

Firebird Dec 5, 2015 09:23 PM

This thread is really embarrasing for BytesForAll. :-(
A whole year of promising ver 4 and responsiveness and nothing said about it for many months.
It looks dead in the water to me.
Looking for alternative theme now and probably never coming back... ~
