Beware of version 3.14.1, as the new management seeks to turn Decode into a cash-cow! Was for sure a 5-star theme that far -- what a pity.

Pure and simple, fast

If you are looking for a theme that's mobile-friendly, fast, has clean code and looks pure and simple, go for decode! I have been very happy with it for several years now.

Beautifully designed, easy to use, super-configurable, straight-forward.

Very nice and useful

Thanks to Scott, 'decode' is the theme I need and I recommend using it. The best part of this theme: simply, it has all what I need. However, I just learned recently that with the latest update of the theme (Version: 3.0.8), there are some bugs and hopefully, we shall see a fix :)

Well done, really nice one!

Too much messing about!
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is a great theme and easy to work with, for the most part. But beware when you update! The author likes to mess around with the stylesheet, changing values and sometimes even class/id names! This can really mess up your site and cause you a lot of extra time trying to track down what was changed and what you need to do to get your site back to looking the way it should.
It happened once again with the latest update - my ul lists got a huge indent and my eight letter heading became so huge only three letters fit in a row, so it took up the entire page, on three lines!
After about an hour of searching through the densely packed style.css (he doesn't know how to work the ENTER key apparently ;-) ) I finally found that 2em of padding had been added to the ul and all elements had been redefined with new font-sizes. The old font-size was 62%. Now it was changed to 100%. (To put it simply.)
So all of that extra work and I still give it four stars? YES! It's a very good theme. If the author would stop messing about, it would be a five-star rating.

Simple, elegant, reliable

This theme works really-really well on any platform and browser (mobile and otherwise).

Many-many thanks!

Great for CV
By , for WP 4.1.1

I needed a simple theme to link to various sites, including social media, and to display my CV. This is perfect.

Almost perfect....

Great template, lots of space...so it makes little sense why the header image is so tiny. looks kind of ridiculous...i don't mind the 300px limit on height, but can it at least have a full width image?

Elegant. My Wifey loves it too!

Using this theme for my wife's artist website. Its Simple, elegant and does what's needed (customize) without any issues. I don't normally post reviews but this one deserves one. My wife loved the layout and looks on its first impression itself.

Amazingly simple and elegant

An amazingly simple and elegant theme.
