This is not a rant. It’s a post from a fan who is sad, very sad.
I am a fan of Redux Framework and use it in all my themes. It’s easy to use and it has an excellent collection of controls which can make your life easier when you deal with option panels. However, the documentation SUCKS!!! It SUCKS big time. Not because it lacks necessary information, but because how it gives you the exact feeling of finding a needle in the haystack. If you go to their documentation, you will literally feel lost. Why not try to search the documentation of “color” control, or “text” perhaps”.
It was a lot easier to find the required information when they were using github wiki. But now, with the redesign, it’s very tough. Their search doesn’t work as expected, gives you a lot of unnecessary information that you don’t need.
And oh, the funny thing is that in the WHOLE site, their github repository is not linked (as of the time of writing it). You simply can’t find a “DOWNLOAD” button, not even something that takes you to the original ReduxFramework repo! Heh, I submitted a ticket in their issue tracker and Dovy replied that he will take care of it. Maybe he is too busy to add a link in 3 months!
So go to ReduxFramework site, and scream “Where is the Mothe*fuck*ng download/fork link?”. No one will hear your scream, boy, no one. They are too busy in making PAID extensions.
I love ReduxFramework. I don’t like how it gives a negative impression from the website. I really don’t like that.
