Hey Vlad - thank you again for the reply!
I want to say that although my comments may seem negative at times, I really like the theme overall. I think you have done some good work here, and offering it under very reasonable pricing and licencing. I would just like it to be even better - hope you understand…I will answer in step form as well:
When do you think that might be updated?
I have managed to get a workaround regarding the gap I mentioned. If I install Siteorigin’s CSS editor, I can remove it by setting the header to absolute, which effectively makes it disappear, then I can add spacing to the title and buttons to bring them down and over the following block (which basically becomes the header at that point, so I have the advantages of being able to do parallax scrolling and actual full width with a regular block, while still having the advantage of using the title with buttons you have set up in your theme. Further notes on this below after point 3…
I have yet to see on several themes I have used any limit on full width when offered - and as of January of this year, monitor resolutions beyond 1920 take up about a third of the stats ( http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_display.asp ), although there may be skewed stats revolving around higher use of mobile devices that may have come into play I suspect.
Regardless, the stats you mentioned were active somewhere around 4 or 5 years ago. Also, the rise of 4K monitor resolution means something, I suspect. This will continue to improve (as it has) into the future. It should be accommodated by all logical estimates.
Even Live Composer allows actual full width. Throttling such a feature because you feel it is not seeing much action is kind of short-sighted, don’t you think?
Sorry to hear about your troubles with clients that can’t grasp the issues that come with parallax headers, regardless. Seems to work okay in Live Composer as a block feature otherwise.
I will look forward to the next version with the new settings - when do you think that might be available?
FURTHER NOTES REGARDING THE GAP
The gap I refer to may actually be caused by the fact that you can’t turn off the header in the customizer without the menu bar changing to always being a solid color, instead of fully transparent, and pushing the first block in line down under the menu block.
I tried added a 1 pixel PNG file to the header to try to cheat the height of it - in effect hiding the header and area - while still maintaining a transparent menu.
What you see in the link above is the result of that.
It leaves a gap at the top. This is likely because there is a 1 pixel image there, but my hope was that the space around the one pixel image would only just be as tall as the image itself (1 pixel). This is not the case.
I have my workaround for this using the Siteorigin CSS editor plugin, so I can fix this without the 1 pixel image nonsense, but it would be great to be able to turn off the header and not have a solid menu bar as an option in the theme itself.
In fact, upon further reflection, it would also be great to have a setting that allows one to set the opacity (or alpha) of the bar (which I was able to do in the free version of west by editing the CSS manually.
Sorry, I wasn’t very detailed about the gap earlier.
Thank you for your help and time on all of this. I really do appreciate it!
