I was looking for a theme that would look good on mobile media as well as in the standard website browser.
I found this responsive theme and, although I've never set up a WordPress site and theme myself before, I decided to 'give it a go'.
This theme is extremely easy for a novice like me to adapt. Want your logo at the top? Want to include a video clip? Easy - in the Theme Options you can select and set up what you want.
I have a little knowledge of html coding and virtually no CSS coding knowledge - but I'm OK with copying and adapting and that helped with some finer tuning (such as handling menu bar color changes).
One suggestion to newbies: If you are a little unsure take advantage of the amazing support forum Emil has set up before you start tinkering. If I'd done that I could have saved myself some time and frustration. Doh! ;)
There's even a link to the support forum from the Theme Options page - how cool is that? And the search results in the forum actually lists posts that make sense (I guess that is down to the users putting accurate tags on their posts!)
But what I'm really impressed with is how it appears on my Smartphone screen - I now have a mobile friendly website too! Brilliant.
Once this website is live I'm planning to update my blog with this theme too.
Emil - I've worked in application software support (in the early days of PCs) so I know what it is like trying to keep on top of all the questions that flood in.
You are supplying a fantastic service and I would rate your theme and your service as 10 out of 5!
This is an excellent easy to use and modify theme. This is the first time ever that i am making a website but besides the theme there is swift support in hand when ever modifications are needed.
This theme is very good. Thank You.
Really love using responsive as a starting point to build a resposive website!!
Using a child theme with it is super easy and works great.
The support forum is full of helpful users, and the theme author spends a lot of time helping others.
Theme is great and easily customised by a novice. The free support is of an excellent standard! Thank you!
I've had experience with several themes over the years and feel really lucky to have finally stumbled across this gem. It is a powerful responsive design, but is also easy to customize (menus, styles, widgets, etc). The grid system is intense - this is allowing me to take wordpress to a whole new level. For a newbie or a seasoned wordpress geek, this theme has the features that really matter, which is so rare these days.
I've had some OK themes over the years (before responsive design came along) and I can tell you, having a well built theme is only half of the game.
If you want something original, you will probably want to customize the look of the theme. But what happens when you get stuck on something?
Unlike the support with other themes I've had, Emil, Ulrich, and the rest of the team at themeid are right there, by your side, every step of the way. In fact, their level of experience and professionalism (especially patience) far outweighs even the support of premium (paid) themes I've purchased in the past.
This level of support is critical to creating a well built, custom looking theme for you website.
Great theme with great support - way to go!
It would be easier to code your own site than to use this
I've tried loads and this is the best. Easy to us and not overly complicated. look forward to seeing one or two extra tweaks and skins but perfect, really. Here's my site http://alien-ufo-sightings.com/
I like the look of this theme. Is it Buddypress and spec compatible?
Quick deployment possible and pretty simple customization options.
