Internet Explorer 9.0... very regular.
By , for WP 4.4

He was pretty excited about this theme. I built an entire site around it, but I ended up finding it quite delicate the loading of large upper image of the site ... in Internet Explorer 9. This leaves very empty to the website.
Like it or not, Internet Explorer is still used by many people.
Not always, but almost.
In my testing with multiple browsers in my tablet, sometimes. In the Pocket Navigator APP, malfunctions.
A shame, but years ago that all developers do themas compatible with browsers, and I trusted me..
Try this detail on your own.
Perhaps in some future update, correct it.

Beautiful for Free
By , for WP 4.3.1

I'm currently using this theme for my small community site. I'm debating on purchasing the pro version because not only do I think the developer deserves the pay, but would like some of the paid options (i.e. the ability to change colors without touching the code).

Pros: clean, simple, easy to use when you are new to WP and site building. Was up and running in a matter of no time. GREAT for blogs and small communities.

Cons: limited to color, limited to title font, limited to fonts, limited to layout, using bbPress and BuddyPress plugins with this theme will have funky things happen with smart devices. It's not entirely bad, just need people to be aware.

The fabulousness starts right away!

I was searching for a clean looking blog that would allow some nice unsplash-type images but then not be so image dependent so as to overcome the blogger. Clean layout, great use of widgets on front page and a focus on blogging. This theme looked great from the start, installed, and hit the ground running.

When you are loading up images for header or widgets front page area it TELLS you the pixel size, love that. Very happy with this theme, into the favorites folder!

Great Theme!
By , for WP 4.3

Great theme! I highly recommend for people who like a semi-customizable theme. If you get the pro version it has more options, but otherwise it is a decent theme and if you know coding css, html etc. then it will be easy to customize almost anything with this theme. Best of all it is free and there is some basic support as well.

Good and attractive but...

It is not responsive. I checked it on phones and the front page doesn't work. No footer.

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!

For a free theme, it is very good and has plenty of potential.
I am really very much satisfied.
