Your clients are taking the timne to provide input/feedback
Rocket theme has design answers to most any issue and or theme need - mucho appreciation for that
My humble input
-as a slightly more than casual user I need a particle/module library set I can quicky pull from
-some theme examples show glimpses of the power of Gantry5 using an easter egg method to demostrate "other" particles/modules and or mix of same with capabiltes is midly entertaining. I dont have an isolated / large amount of time to design/build particles to advance my clientel
limited needs. That being said , I can see some of the benefits after spending 10 hours of my own time reviewing and trying some of the features. I don't have a handle on how long it wil take to adapt previously honed skills to this new approach.
I do understand how develpers think and have a deep appreciation for the questionable attention rec'd when changing direction like this.
Perhaps we ( your subscriber- (paying)) clients are simply providing feedback to what appears to be a "field testing model"
where we are given new "features" / logic/ and a leaning curve ( we pay for on top of the product)
The simple fact you don't hear a large running (away sound) sound means we are most likely still in awe of what a massively great toolset you have created over the years
I don't have a clear simple answer for a better approach to this sea change and enduser attempts to absorb
it outside of possibly rethinking the user examples/ video(s) or documentation.
I don't know.. maybe provide an indexed library set of examples / applications using the Gantry5 system
and provide a particle libray updated with all existing theme tricks / features
The documetation covers how to create particles perthaps nice for some - not me
In truth Im not a programmer - dont expect to be - I have a different focus -
I regcognize Rocket theme has a cadre of exellent leaders / contributors
so please forgive the obvious - our responses indicate a problem absorbing unexpected change,
we are paying customers with our hands up in frustration
So I'm asking for a bridge between where we seem to be and where you want us to go (or think we want to)
maybe the library idea above or something else more effctively thought out by better
minds than I have.
Thanks for listening
