    Wow! I’d completely missed that and hadn’t appreciated that the difference went beyond support.

    I tried the lite version on the train this morning and its a lovely theme. Got the header and menus customised really easily. I’ll try out your home page tutorials tonight.

    Ah OK, the lite version of 18tags is the same as the pro, but without premium support.

    Thanks Jamie!

    I’ll download 18tags tonight and have a play. Perhaps I haven’t looked in the right places, but is there a comparison of the lite vs pro versions?

    And a pro version of Page Builder? Really? That’s fabulous! :)

    Thanks Jamie, that makes sense. I guess I should have been more direct and asked whether pootlepress, as a company that have obviously invested a lot in Canvas, believe it has a future?

    I’m still using it, and still love it and think that it’s great – absolutely no doubts about that – but I suppose like a lot of people I look occasionally for a bit of reassurance that I’m doing the right thing without at the same time getting too distracted by fashions or what happens to be the coolest product right now. So I’m not sure what alarms me most about Canvas: the fact that it’s almost disappeared from any recent reviews of theme frameworks (I can’t even find a review of it post 2013-14, at which point it was holding its own against Genesis), or the sense that nobody seems to have noticed. Even Woo seem – imo – to be half heartedly telling people that they’re still committed, but I’m feeling unconvinced as to why a company would let one of its core products fade away if they intended to keep updating it :(

    Of course I’ll give 18Tags a spin, but am I right in thinking that your page editor works with Genesis too? If so, is it a direct equivalent to Design Palette Pro?

    Cheers as ever, Tom

    Thumbs up for Restrict Content Pro: it’s a really great plugin.

    An update of sorts. BP Group Organiser looks good, but there’s minimal documentation and it doesn’t look like it’s been updated in a coupe of years. I got it to work eventually after lots of tinkering with the CSV file. The same author has written an interesting plugin for creating Group hierarchies too, although it is also somewhat out of date.

    Anyway, I’ve been experimenting with

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-all-import/ and

    Ultimate CSV Importer

    I prefer WP All Import, which has a much larger number of installs. I’ve only so far spent a couple of hours with the free version, but it appears to import metadata into almost any WP field (you have to set up the mapping yourself), plus it can also import users, and also imports any product info into WooCommerce.It also works with ACF too. Costs $99 / $139 / $199.

    Just found this, which looks promising:

    BP Group Organizer

    To quote from the notes:

    CSV files may supply any of these fields: id, creator_id, name, path, slug, description, status, enable_forum, date_created, parent_id
    CSV files must have ONE of these fields: slug or path
    If you are trying to recreate a hierarchy, CSV files must have either path or all of group_id, slug, parent_id
