Is Themler too buggy?

It doesn't take much of a search to find a lot of complaints about Themler, and in their own forums. I guess that's as good of a place as any to gripe. Every one of those complaints are legitimate. I've built a couple of themes and experience the same thing that many others have brought up. It's buggy.

But is it too buggy?

I hear your pain of spending "a lot" of money for a worthless product. I hear the calls for pitchforks, "Stick of fork in it, I'm going back to Artisteer." But, I also think you are not being fair. Not fair to the developers and not fair to yourselves.

We, as Artisteer users, have enjoyed the BEST product out there for years, at a very reasonable price. Consider what Microsoft and Adobe have been charging for their stuff. Artisteer beat them all, in production, intuitiveness, and value. We liked it so much we wanted more. I can remember the first time I used it and thought to myself, "This would be even better online."

Isn't that what we've been clamoring for? And now we have. I can't believe it's here, even in it's "beta" version. We begged Artisteer for an online version, and they have delivered. Thank you.

Every piece of software that you use is loaded with bugs, there is NO way to release a perfect version, and there never will be. Even the most expensive, I'm talking thousands of dollars, has to go through revisions once it's released. Themler is not expensive.

Do not abandon Themler.

We owe it to the developers to continue using it, as much as possible. Our usage will help it's development, the working out of those bugs. We owe it to ourselves to stop complaining. Themler is by far the best hope for what we have desired.

I'm not a Themler or Artisteer employee, and in no way connected to any part of their business. I'm a website designer just like you. Let's help it succeed, for them and for ourselves. Stop your crying and complaining, and instead offer solid useful criticism, with a load of respect.

I started to test demo from very beginning, before buying licence. Can say only groovly, number of bugs, errors and problems is today reduced for 98%. Without kidding.

When Themler come publicly you could not click 10 times without some bug, error. I guess as it is so unique product in the world even developers needed time to get used to it and have more sensibility for this product. Now those bugs are almost non existent. From time to time I see one, but GUI now have many ways to use one option (you can click to one option from very different sides). I am to lazy to even report it. Just one of them works OK and I am fine.
