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.

Social Plugins Issue
By , for WP 3.9.2

**updated from a 1 star rating;
If you have trouble with the social options, check if it is asking for a username, if you are entering a page and it asks for user name, cut and paste the URL after the .com/
Example URL: https://vimeo.com/channels/okinawasurf
Vimeo Username: channels/okinawasurf

Previous 1 Star Rating:Seems like a simple feature to make work. Probably doesn't deserve a 1 star over this but I'm giving up on this theme over it. Developer should be using direct URLs for social, not login/usernames.
