- Why would someone buy a classic theme when the Builder version is just a few dollars more? (Or maybe a better question, why offer it that way?)

- The Builder version of Essence says it's responsive. The classic version of Essence does not say that. Is the classic responsive also?

Thank you!

Hi,

our customer base is loyal, and some have been around and developed sites before we released Builder using our (what we now call 'classic' themes). They should still be able to download and update the themes they purchased. Also, Builder doesn't suit everyone, and some may just fancy and use the Classic designs out-of-the-box.

Also, none of the Classic themes are responsive,

hope this clarifies,
Ronald

Thank you for the fast reply.

A follow-up question: It  looks as though there is a slight difference in the appearance of the Classic "Essence" theme, and the Builder version of the same. Is that correct?

Hi,

yes, that is correct. The fixed layout of the Classic Essence theme allowed for certain styling elements (such as the shadows),  whereas Builder allows you to design your layout any way you want. For that, concessions had to be made,\
