Sidebars get messed with a plugin that adds sidebars
By , for WP 3.8.1

I don't use this theme but got somebody who asks me for help with this theme. The problem he had turned out to be the sidebar IDs of this theme. This theme does not set sidebar ids, which cause troubles if you use a plugin that adds custom sidebars.

I posted a support request regarding this issue and got no response.

Sorry.

Lack of Support
By , for WP 3.5.2

I have had several issues with this theme for most of which I had to find my own answer or was helped by members, not support. Now I have deprecated java issue, which is not only problem for my site but other as well using this theme yet no one is responding on that issue. With such error, any further java based codes cannot be used.

I am very happy with the responsive design and look of Pinboard and have invested lots of time to customize it but am now being forced to start from scratch with different, more supported theme otherwise I cannot use it to its full extent.

good theme - header image limitations
By , for WP 3.5.1

overall i do like this theme, except for the header image feature. And for such a standard feature as including a custom header image, its pretty poor. I am currently wrestling with including a logo for a header image. Unless it is exactly 48X196 pixels it pretty much cant work. It forces you to crop to these dimensions (lacking the 'skip cropping, use as-is' option.

I am trying to find a way around this in the hard code, something im new to but if i cant figure it out soon I will likely find a different theme to use.
