Topic: Too many bugs in this software (needs better testing)

freddiehaddad pro asked 5 years ago

It seems like the Pro version of this software is really buggy and many features don't work as shown on the site.

I used the starter index.html in the .\MDB Big Bundle\MDB Pro folder.

  1. Range Slider
    1. When sliding the control the value is displayed multiple times below the horizontal bar.
    2. I added to my style.css file (seems to have solved the problem):
      .value { display: none; }
  2. Admin Packs
    1. When trying to use the minimalist charts, they don't work (4th time I post about this)
    2. I have to include jquery.easypiechart.js to resolve the issue.
  3. The Accordion doesn't work correctly
    1. You need to show an example of how to configure it so only one element is shown at a time (similar to the side navigation menu).  It took me an hour to figure it out.
  4. Included templates don't match what you see on the site (refer to the admin template pack as an example)
  5. There needs to be unified mdb.css and mdb.js file that contains all the templates and options.  Right now, when I use the css file included with the admin template pack other features are missing from the pro pack.

I commented on a number of other issues over the past few months.

It seems like this software library is not tested very well.  Very disappointed with it.  The point of buying a template pack like this is not to sit and debug it, it's to be able to use it.

What do you need from me to solve these problems?

Dear Sbock, What version of MDB do you use? Answering point by point:
  1. Range Slider works fine in version 4.4.5
  2. We've already fixed that bug and we'll release new version of admin dashboard within 2 weeks
  3. It will be fixed this or next week.
  4. What exactly is missing apart from minimalist charts?
  5. They cannot be unified, because they are separated products. MDB Pro package is already huge, so we cannot make it heavier. We've created templates as lighter, specialized versions of MDB Pro - so if we include all the styles in all the templates we'll break our fundamental assumption.
For the last few months, we have been working on a huge update with completely new documentation and totally rewritten sass code. That's hundreds of thousands of lines of code, hundreds of components and hundreds of documentation page to create again. We really do our best to make MDB a perfect product, but it cannot be made easy and fast. Be patient please and we'll provide you solutions for all the problems you struggle. The big update is coming. Best Regards,

This is understandable, but than you need to reconsider your pricing model.
