Almost perfect....
By , for WP 4.1

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.

Fantastic minimalist theme

This is a great theme by a great developer who is very responsive and provides amazing support, although the theme is free.

Simple question, but lazy to answer back.
lousy...

Good Clean Sensible Theme - All Purpose
By , for WP 4.0

I never review themes but there is something about this wonderfully crisp no nonsense theme that I really like. It is so crisp that it works as a simple home web design right through to a corporate look. And as you'd expect it comes up well on smaller devices.

It also seems quite stable.

In a world of over kill it's refreshing to see functional minimalism.

Well done.

Great theme with great support
By , for WP 4.0

I saw a couple bad reviews in here, so I felt the need to chime in...

I think people tend to forget that the developer has a life outside of Decode. He's a kid, who probably has school work and a social life. He's not working 40hrs a week on Decode for a living. He's doing it in his free time, and giving it away, for free. Don't expect him to drop everything he's doing and make his theme compatible with some obscure formatting change you're trying to make. If you think you can do better, teach yourself HTML and CSS and help the dev out, instead of posting here complaining about how poor the support is.

I've been using Decode for a few months now, and like others, have run into my share of issues. Every time I've posted in the support forum or messaged the dev, I've received nothing but good support and feedback from the both the dev and the community.

Thank you for the great, free theme and for continuing to support it as much as you can.

Extremely disappointed
By , for WP 4.0

Had such high hopes of this template, spent quite a bit of time on my site. The spacing and size of elements are ridiculously large. Tried to obtain some support from the author, took quite a few days to hear back from him and when i finally did was given a poor response and lack of interest in helping any further.

My main concern was trying to have a fixed side bar, it is NOT possible to do this using the decode template.

Disappointed to have wasted so much time on this and have an unsable product - go elsewhere!

Really elegant and beautiful by default yet highly customizable

I am so grateful that the author generously provided this for free
