Pure and simple, fast
By , for WP 4.4.2

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.

Simple, elegant, reliable

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

Many-many thanks!

Great for CV

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

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
By , for WP 4.1.1

Beautiful minimalist theme by an avid developer who provides great support, even though he is already generous to offer the theme for free.

beautiful and lots of options
By , for WP 4.0

Works well, and huge number of options available :)

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.
