I was a late adopter of WP and still have a site elsewhere, but must say I think this theme is great.
It's easy to use, has tons of info in the forum if you get stuck and ticks all the boxes I set for giving me a responsive website.
I've built 5 with this so far, each easier than the previous.
Loads of extras available and if you can play with style sheets there's not much you can't do.
And this is just the lite version!
it is very good theme particularly header and banner properties are well.
but there are some lacks.
there is only "full width" page structure. i think it should have "center" page. i had would like spaces instead of full width.
The current trend in new sites (unless you are in a niche market or making a blog site that presents your unique personality) is something open, light and easy to read. Something that makes you want to stop and take a look when you are flipping through dozens of sites every day during your browsing. Something that stands out so the viewer stays longer. Retention - a big word in today's development arena.
Celestial is a theme that does just that.
The theme customizer is amazing. You get 19 widget positions, a custom showcase on the front page, 10+ different page styles (not including default!), easy access to set any color you want in 36 different areas, good-looking social media links for whichever ones you provide, a "search" option on the same bar if you choose, an insane number of customized elements including pricing tables and progress bars... the list goes on.
And it comes with a Child Theme ready to set up. Makes it very easy to set up this must-have part of your site if you plan to do any customization at all.
Tie that all in with superb responsiveness (my site looks great on any device right out of the box) that includes mobile styling areas in the child's stylesheet. This allows simple access to further customize your site based on the size of the viewport being used.
Finally, you absolutely cannot ask for better support, unless the developer was sitting right there next to you. Styled Themes goes way, way, way beyond the call of duty and gives you everything you need, and typically much more. I wont say they build your site for you, but with this theme and the type of feedback you get, you will feel very good about what you're doing. Very quick turnaround on responses, and you'll notice that almost all support topics not marked as "resolved" were last replied to by Styled Themes. This indicates a very strong commitment to support in my eyes.
I LOVE this theme. It looks great. There are SO MANY customization options in the customization panel and it's really easy to do. The developer has responded quickly to my request for support, What else could I want? You will not be disappointed if you decide to use this theme.
Great and fast support, easy to get up and configure! Thanks for this lovely theme!
The theme is amazing, you can get it to look, Professional, Plain & Simple or Trendy what ever you may prefer.
And great support too.
Passes W3C Validation with flying colours and works!
Do I need to say more? I think not.
Thank you for a great theme with clear documentation and working examples. I had an issue with layout in IE9 (ok in other browsers) which was down to changes I had made. The support response was extremely helpful and very quick.
Very many thanks again. Highly recommended.
I really liked this theme, until I had problems with the comments. When I went to the author's web site for support I found you had to have purchased a theme to use their support forum. I don't know how to resolve the error:
Warning: call_user_func() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function 'styledthemes_comment' not found or invalid function name in /home/bicycle/www/www/wp-includes/comment-template.php on line 1627
If I switch themes this error message goes away and the comment is displayed.
As a complete website novice I can't say enough about the fantastic support this author offers. There were several themes out there which I could use but as a novice, support was really important. I noticed that this author replies to posts daily and gives clear instructions and goes well beyond the 'call of duty'. He gives people more help and advice than they expect. This shows the author has great intelligence, insight, consideration, business savvy and pride in his work.
I wasn't sure WordPress was for me, but after my experience thus far I'm contemplating upgrading to the Pro version, just so that this guy gets some recompense for his efforts. I posted my first questions yesterday and got an answer less than 24hrs later. This is pretty acceptable considering I'm in Australia and the author is Canadian and was probably asleep when the post was put up! I can't wait to finish my website and have it go live.
