Very useful and nice theme. It's work and look great, also on mobile devices.
I've been trying different themes for my website last few months and I discovered evolve about a week ago and it's amazing with the level of customization you get with it and how easy it is to configure.
This theme has a lot to offer and it was fairly easy to figure out how to modify it to my needs.
Absolutely love this Theme. Great Work!
Updates are full of bugs. Backend configuration does not work properly. Custom logo will not work. Slider arrow positioning in newest version is graphically challenged. Also, social icons will not display. Was good at 2.4.6 but is now a massive mess!
Updates since 2.4.6 have many bugs. First the custom logo quits working, then slider is formatted badly. Now social icons will not display. It is a train wreck!
I worked very hard getting Evolve looking jus tthe way I wanted. Now I wish I had used a different theme with more widget areas, more customizable areas and one I could make a child-them from without it crashing or looking like c#@p.
When I get more time I will re-do this site, get away from Evolve and never looked back. It is not a bad theme if you want something simple - very simple. But there are very simple themes that are much easier to work with and get better support. If you want support for Evolve from the developer - good luck.
I have been using Evolve for few montha now, and I'm happy with it.
For an inexperienced user like me, its easy to customize, although it has limited options, all works well.

I have some problems with evolve child theme, when i made one, the header crashes in child... My fault since I didnt do it at begining, and now its hard to change everything.
To sum up, theme works well, looks good, easy to set up for beginners, easy to maitain.
After a while lack of advanced customizing options is annoying - but there is an answer to that - time to learn more coding.. :)
(thats why 4 instead of 5 stars)
The layout works really well on desktop browsers. It's a miserable failure on phones - full-width header leaving a massive side-scroll, sidebar shoved to the bottom, huge space between post teasers (on Android, BlackBerry OS5 browser and Opera Mini), post teasers render with negative horizontal indent meaning only the right half of the paragraph is displayed. Despite claiming to be "responsive", it was clearly never tested on a phone.

I am considering installing this theme. I really like the look and functions--however, I came here to look through the functions and saw that it has 12 - 1 star reviews and 13 - 5 star. Such a varied difference. But I cannot find any reason why people gave it s low or high rating as it seems there are no comments. Can someone who uses it give me the scoop or send me to a site to see it in use?
