This theme is exactly what I need and the built in customization is awesome. The only problem I ran into was with the anchor texts for hyperlinks showing up as white (invisible) or black (so pretty much invisible). At first, I thought, not a big deal, I'll change the css. Well it took hours to find the post and pages content element and seems to be marked up much different than other css sheets I've seen. Hopefully this gets fixed in the next update because otherwise, it is a very good product.
I really like this theme but support for it is definitely lacking. Also when doing a google search for anything regarding it, I am always shown the word simple which makes searching all harder. Might want to consider a name change. Other then that pretty great, straight forward theme.
The developer recommends using his contact form for support issues but he doesn't respond. He doesn't respond in the wp support forum either.
The theme has an issue in IE8 (doesn't open) which may have been fixed in the newer version, but that breaks the child theme.
