Only for developers?
By , for WP 3.8.1

On the surface it may appear to be a theme just right for a webmaster to adapt simple changes for his/her site. But it is way too complicated for that. A good example of my frustration is to add to the footer credits. My current them running 3.8.1 was written in 2010 and conforms to WordPress 3.8.1 and its Appearances menu. A simple menu item titled Footer allows me to enter the footer code I want. But not with Customizr. Somehow it blocks the 3.8.1 Dashboard item and instead I have to use a "code snippet" which I found on the theme's site, which doesn't work correctly anyway. Looking at the list of "code snippets" provided, many are simple tasks that in other themes can be changed by adapting CSS statements or typing in HTML in a child theme page.

I've spent a lot of time attempting to get this theme to match my current site (I'm changing because I want to go responsive) but I'm going to look for something else.

No availability to choose slider images
By ,

Also, though a bit friendly, will need tons of css to work it. It does not allow for one to choose featured pages which in my case are categories. Shuld allow for us to choose categories and the slider pics as please. Meaning, I do want the slides to be my latest posts but some images like I have it now. Otherwise, very interesting to customize.

Unable to migrate from dev to prod
By , for WP 3.5.2

The theme is captivating and slick. Unfortunately, I spent all day figuring out how to migrate an install from dev to prod. In the transition, the database does not keep the configuration for sliders and featured pages. So they need to be reconfigured in the new environment. Not ready for prime time.
