Beautiful

This is the best theme I ever tried. Thanks for the developer for providing complete package a newbie would expect.

too much "These options are only available with the evolve+ Premium version." yo

too much "These options are only available with the evolve+ Premium version." you should call this a "version to make some tests" not a free version

FREE & EASY - Feature packed & powerful
By , for WP 4.5.3

Has everything I usually want in a free theme and has many optional configurations to vary the look & feel. Being free I do not expect or need support so it suits my needs. One of my favourites!

Theme is reasonable, but the support is abysmal
By , for WP 4.5.3

While the theme itself is quite workable - a number of quirks but works reasonably well as a child theme - the biggest drawback is the author support.

I've found that the theme authors demonstrate a very poor attitude toward customer service, apparently taking any comment as a direct challenge, and generally being obtuse and unhelpful unless the issue turns out to be user error. (ie, something they can blame the user for instead of themselves...)

That attitude alone would make me very wary of buying the paid version of the theme, if that's an example of how they treat clients in general. #unprofessional

As to the theme itself - it is pretty good right out of the box, with easily customized features via the options panel. And custom CSS allows for easily extended tailoring beyond that.

The theme works well as a parent for child themes, and allows proper overriding of parent theme files.

The one issue I've found though, is with theme updates - there seems to be very little regard for backward compatibility of one version to a previous. Theme settings get lost outright and/or overridden CSS changes completely, requiring a fair amount of reworking to restore a site's appearance after an update.

I do like the theme - but absolutely hate the support... so while I would have liked to give it 4.5 out of 5, it gets a generous 3.

Bugs
By , for WP 4.5.3

Good theme with a lot of options, but i can't translate "Read More" button to my own language, because there is not that in theme files.
Second problem is text above and under my page: Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, class 'ReduxFramework' does not have a method 'vc_fixes' in /home/projekt/public_html/erasmusplus/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 525

Evolve Theme | Logo Issue
By , for WP 4.5.3

I have used the theme evolve to 1 year in a personal project, however, after last update theme, logo no longer appears in the header.

Buggy and terrible support
By , for WP 4.5.3

DO NOT USE THIS THEME!!!

I purchased the paid version of the theme hoping that it would fix the problems with the free version. Don't waste your time or money on this theme.

(1) Theme updates cause you to lose many of your customizations so you have to redo them. It doesn't work with child themes.
(2) Very buggy.
(3) Terrible paid (not free) support. Purchase of the theme comes with 6 months of forum support. The person answering the questions is terrible and you have to ask the same question several times to get any useful information at all.

ok
