Love this theme. I like that you can add a little bit of custom CSS without having to make a child them. It took me some time to figure out how to create new sliders, and I didn't realize at first I'd need to resize images to make them work with the featured pages feature. But now that it's done my site looks great! Very impressive for a free theme.
Not as flashy as some of the premium themes, but makes up for it in excellent implementation. One of our creatives liked the slider and chose this theme. Really good for customization. Behaves very nicely as a child theme. Works well with plugins. CSS is well laid out. Solid right from download and installation. Intuitive. Good for beginners to start, and for developers to hack. Renders well on desktop and smartphone.
The theme forum was very helpful and I was able to solve all but one issue: How to put a category of posts into a text widget. After many hours of trying various hacks I had to use a plugin for this. Summary:
Theme reliability: excellent, did not break
Rendering: adaptive fully tested and works on smartphone and desktop
Documentation: excellent, readable, understandable, useful
Forum and Author support: excellent
Theme "a-ha" unfortunate surprises: none
Icons: Genericons, entypo font and glyphicons: work well, easy to change
Recommendation to a close friend: yes
Fácil de adaptar y flexible.
True to it's name, Customizr has a wonderful collection of code snippets that will allow you to customize the look and feel of your website. This theme is so easy to use, it really lets you focus on your content - not website development. Customizr also has a very active and helpful community.
Thank you so much for your theme and contribution to WordPress.
I am just a beginner and was modifying old websites which i had developed in Publisher and Word.
i was not satisfy with free themes available on WP and was looking around for better option. i just installed CUSTOMIZER theme and started editing my company's old pages and found it most easiest to customize and most beautiful looking theme. i even tried to donate sum of amount but unfortunately my country was listed there in paypal.
Hats Off to Customizr Team
GREAT WORK KEEP IT UP WISH THE CUSTOMIZER TEAM ALL THE BEST.
A very good theme and a very sympathetic developer. I'll gladly donate.
Be careful! The new version is not compatible with WooCommerce!
Strangely the pages of the store are empty...
EDIT: works fine! Thank you to the developer for its rapid correction!
Note to users: Wait until the new version is officially online or ask where the developer
100% superb :)
I'm not a developer so I previously paid a web-designer friend to set up my WP site. But it was a pain having to go back to him every time I wanted to change something. I searched high and low for a theme that would be fairly easy for an inexperienced person to install, and have some degree of customisation going forward. Oh, and lots of lovely functionality and slider options. Nothing else like that exists out there, unless you pay through the nose for one of paid themes. Then I found Customizr and I couldn't believe my luck. It does EVERYTHING I needed it to do, has fantastic customisable functionality (as you'd expect, given its name) and has given me a cleaner, whizzier, more professional looking WP site than the one my web-design friend started me off on. Most of the functionality is intuitive to use, and it's really forgiving of my novice skills. They even made it a cinch to set up a child theme, so I can further customize what comes out the box. And if you don't know what a child theme is, neither did I till I installed customizr and found out how easy it was to do.
There's full theme documentation to get you started here: http://www.themesandco.com/customizr/

No, I'm not on any payroll, I'm just a user and a fan. Had the site up and running for a couple of months now and it's not let me down.
If you need your hand holding even more, I found a couple of useful videos on Youtube which I found really valuable when taking my first steps.
[ links redacted, please do not post those in reviews. Links to the theme author's site is fine. ]
Finally, the icing on the cake for me is the Customizr's author Nico, and his back up team of support Members on the forum (esp d4z and rdell), who are so incredibly helpful in replying quickly, solving issues, answering questions and giving fantastic advice.
These guys really are the deal, and this theme really is the deal. Can't recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants an intuitive, easy to use, highly functional, great looking WP theme that doesn't cost you a thing. Although I went on Nico's blog and donated a few bucks to keep him and the guys in coffee. Worth every cent.
