This weekend I was browsing for a wordpress theme for my portfolio, I found the Mikael theme which I liked, and even found out this theme was on sale, which got me excited. Upon further inspection of the theme information, I saw an Envato elements advert on the side suggesting this theme was also part of the Envato elements package. After doing more research into Envato elements I decided to purchase a subscription, so in addition to the Mikael theme I could also have access to handy elements. However, the access to the theme was a dealbreaker for me.
Upon installing the Mikael theme, I found out I can’t edit the page without activation the theme with a code from the author. As can be seen in the attachment the page stays white, and it suggests me to activate the account. However, no activation codes are provided, rendering this product unusable for all Envato element users. I’m extremely disappointed, as I want this theme for my portfolio, and I need it on a short term basis. Now I’m feeling forced to make a double payment, of having paid for Envato elements, and for the theme itself If I want it from Themeforest. As cherry on top, the item isn’t even on sale anymore.
Long story short, I am extremely dissatisfied.
