Crappy support.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I had some issues since I installed this theme and put it down at support forum. But nobody answered about it.
I visited their own website and found they even do not answer at support forum there. What I guess is that they only answer for the premium users. It sucks. I have used various themes, and most of them responses pretty well. Mantra theme function might be good, but if they do not support then it is not worthy anymore.

Content Slider for Recent Posts Doesn't Work/Crappy Support
By , for WP 3.6.1

First off, this is a really cool theme but it just doesn't work well. I have the content slider set for Recent Posts and while it shows the post info on each transition, it doesn't show any images. I have tried to figure it out on my own and I have posted FIVE times to their support forum and not once got a reply that was the least bit helpful. If this is the kind of support they offer then these folks will not be getting any money from me. If what they are implying is that they don't give you good support unless you pay them, DON'T MAKE IT A FREE THEME.

It's really sad because I really like this theme but because of my terrible experience with their support, I would NEVER recommend any themes by this company to anyone.

Bugs, snark and being ignored by support
By , for WP 3.4.2

This team is more interested in writing cute jokes on their site than they are in helping you with their buggy theme.

Before you spend time installing and developing this theme for your needs, take a minutes to read some of the rude, dismissive comments from admins in the "support forum", which might better be called a jeering peanut gallery (note they don't allow users to add info and often close questions before any depth is established; part of their brilliant business model so you have to pay for support).

I'm not going to mention the names of other, better themes because I don't want anyone to think I'm here to push another product. Indeed, I'm here to push ANY other product.

Mostly, there are better teams doing real work to create great products that you'll feel inspired to pay for and donate to.

This group has entirely missed the point of the wonderful thing that is WordPress. Don't waste your time and certainly don't encourage their bs with money or use of their products.

Could not make the slider display any images
By , for WP 3.4.2

I was excited to download this theme. It seems very easy to setup. Uploaded pictures for the slider, and could not make it work. Then created posts for each image, and the slider will NOT display the images. It only pretends that it is loading and displaying the white image with a circle in the middle. Checked that many people have had this issue. Followed all suggested "fixes" all the way to editing the jQuery. I am installing on a new WordPress Installation - the latest one. Spent a whole day trying and reading support -- nothing made it work. Great dissapointment with this otherwise very clean looking theme. Please recommend a similar one that works. Thank you.

fully responsive?
By , for WP 3.4.2

Sorry guy, this theme isn't fully responsive.
Please stop to push some seo keywords in your theme description.
