The future of Atahualpa

I'm sorry to see that Atahualpa is no longer being updated. It seems unfair that WordPress should insist on a costly rewriting of the theme just to make it work with their customizer (the theme's own settings section works fine), so I quite understand the developer's position/ However, I'm worried about continuing to rely on a theme that may break with with a future WP update. Is there nothing that can be done? The theme has huge user base. Could we not crowdfund the production of a new version, meeting WP's standards?

If that's not possible, does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement theme with similar features? It's the customizability that makes Atahualpa so special.

Atahualpa is still being updates, it is just not being supported on WordPress because - as you noted - it doesn't support the customizer. I'm still monitoringthe forums for any issues that come up, and will try t fix them, but as I've pointed out rewritting it to meet WordPresses 'standards' is something that is just that I don't see happening.

The only way I see is if Flynn wanted to make it a paid theme and pull it from WP but that is his decision, not mine.

Thanks for your reply. Apologies if I misrepresented the situation. Since there had been no updates for some time, I thought you had (understandably, given WP's attitude) decided to let the theme die a natural death. I'm glad to hear that you're still updating it, and I wish WP would take a more sensible attitude. If were to produce a paid version, I suspect there'd be a lot of uptake. I certainly like to keep using it. All best.
