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?

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!
