The Negative Cursed Side;

There are a few reasons why you may not want to buy a WordPress theme from ThemeForest:

  1. Quality: While ThemeForest has a strict review process for WordPress themes, there may still be some low-quality themes on the platform. It’s important to carefully research and evaluate the theme that you are considering purchasing. As a developer myself, I find most of the themes are breaking the standard WordPress hierarchy and sometimes creating conflicts with some of the WordPress plugins working well.
  2. Support: Not all WordPress themes on ThemeForest offer support from the theme developer, so you may not have access to help and guidance if you encounter any issues or have questions.
  3. Customization: Some WordPress themes on ThemeForest may not be customizable, or may require advanced coding skills to customize, which can limit your ability to make the theme your own. This is the other biggest problem. I see lots of client sites with BIG BIG themes from ThemeForest and the problem is they have too many features the themes are practically not customizable if you need some advanced features.
  4. Price: While ThemeForest offers a range of pricing options for WordPress themes, some themes may be more expensive than others, which may not fit your budget.

Overall, while buying a WordPress theme from ThemeForest can offer a large selection of themes and support, it’s important to carefully research and evaluate the theme that you are considering purchasing, and to consider the potential drawbacks, such as limited customization and potential cost.

What to do?

Well, it is hard to answer. This answer depends on the person and their needs. If you can I recommend consulting even before you buy your hosting, themes, and plugins. If you don’t know anything. You need to talk with someone who knows this stuff. Otherwise, it is 100% certainty you will face long-term problems.
