First and foremost, this site is not officially affiliated with Theme Fusion, the owners and developers of the Avada theme. Official support and support related questions should be directed to the team.

After spending the last few months researching a variety of website builders and themes, I have decided to put most of my eggs in the Avada basket. Like all other themes and plugins, Avada has outstanding features and aggravating shortcomings, but all-in-all I find it to be the best all around tool available especially in light of recent updates and its ongoing focus on WCAG requirements.

This site will feature news from the community, tips and tricks related to those shortcomings I mentioned, some mini tutorials, and downloadable layouts.

This first post is here to introduce you to the site as well as serve as a baseline to start building custom layouts. If at all possible, the site will be built with “out of the box” Avada capabilities.
