The Good

  • Clean & attractive design
  • Easy to set up
  • Not overloaded with crap like sliders, etc that are better off in a plugin

The Bad: Misleading about what the free version does. The developer's page says the free version has no color options, no font options and no support. Thus, I was expecting the footer widgets shown in the demo, but the free version does not have footer widgets.

This was frustrating and disappointing. I wish I had known this and had not wasted time trying to figure out where the widgets were hiding.

So far, best and easiest theme to customize

I'm using the free version for now, but will be upgrading to premium because I'm going to be using it on so many different client sites.

Very easy to customize, thanks Mr. Bavota!

Brilliant theme!

I'm using the free Arcade version and I absolutely love it. Beautiful, lightweight, fast loading, easy to customize. I can't thank you enough for making WordPress come alive with this theme!

Very good !

A minimal theme but nice! I just regret that i can't personalize the logo under website title...

Can't add a page menu
By , for WP 4.0

The theme is pretty solid. But it doesn't give me an option to add a menu that I create.

Is there a plugin that would allow me to see the option of header/footer menu?

Love this theme but.

Like I said, I love this theme. Very clean and simple design. But... I wish it had eCommerce support for plug-ins like wooCommerce.

I love the look of this theme but...

I am using a website that give me access to this free theme and I love how it looks. However I am very frustrated trying to figure out the features.

1-Website crops the header image on Home Page and pages. For instance, the preview shows the whole image but when I publish it it cuts my head.

2- There is no link available to home page when I am in other pages such as About me.

3- I cant change the font from the header

3-I cant switch the icon in the header to my logo

4- I would like to lower the size of the image (header), but thats not an option

5- I can't add an image to the preview of my blog post in the homepage.

I wish to receive more support on this issues because I really like it.



Great look and style

Its very professional and fully customizable.

My only problem is that the support forum isn't super active.

I've been able to figure out most of my problems myself though because the theme pretty well organized! :)

Love this theme!

It's beautiful and easy to use and customize. The headers look fantastic, the fonts are perfect, the posts are well displayed, it really is awesome. Embedded videos and photos are seamless and smooth, and that's critical when that's the whole point of my website. Playing around with it is easy and intuitive, and there are tons of ways to make it your own.

With the basic theme it looks like a million bucks, but it's so great I'm getting the premium version to really see what it can do.
