This was my first experience of using WordPress, and as a non-programmer it has been very flexible to fit my purpose for the site I've completed. Many of the questions I see on the main forum, for other themes, are simple changes within the suite of Frontier config pages.
I'm considering using Frontier again (for a completely different layout) to port another of my sites onto WordPress. This time I hope to use more of the built-in features (like the custom CSS window) and get the code right from the start.
Lots of useful information in the Forum, and a very prompt response from Ron to any new questions (which I noticed is not so common on the other themes).
I really like this theme. The theme options are very easy to use. There are a lot of options as well. Basically everything can be customized without having to worry about coding. Probably the best free theme you can find. The only problem is since it's so easy to use and highly customizable - it's also popular. While you can customize it, you can't change it enough to be unique.
For my first attempt at WordPress I agreed to build a website to match someone else's graphic design. By a stroke of luck I chose Frontier as the theme to build on. It's easy to understand and highly adaptable with plenty of hooks to allow you to change layout, style and appearance. The responsiveness works very well. When I had one problem I couldn't solve I posted a question on the Frontier forum and got an answer - with the solution - within a few hours. It's great!
One of the best theme I've ever seen! Great job you've done
Very good theme but i have very annoying bug. When i start header and upload logo everything is fine but when im logged out header disapper. Any suggestions ? After 10 themes when I install this theme its change my life ;)
I went through at least 8 other WP themes before I found Frontier. I wasted hours trying to customize sites before becoming frustrated and looking for a new one. Frontier is the best I've found. It's very self-explanatory, has tons of features, and is extremely customizable without going in to code.
The developer is super responsive, very detailed in replies and answers quickly.
Thank you for a great theme!
I like this theme and use it on some of my websites and i am totally satisfied from this theme and also the excellent support of the developer. Thanks a lot for making and supporting this great theme.
This is an excellent theme right out of the box, with a lot of options for making minor tweaks without having to getting into a lot of complex coding.
What makes it great is that the developer is exceptionally responsive and helpful. He's helped me solve a number of issues and incorporated the fix to one as a new option in a subsequent release.
One thing to be aware of is that this is an HTML5 theme and as such contains some elements that older browsers (e.g., IE 8 and earlier) may not know how to deal with. You can address some of those by adding the Modernizr plugin or something similar, but certain elements may not translate. This is in no way an aspersion on the theme -- just something to keep in mind, especially if you're developing a site for a client.

I have reported 2 minor problems on the dev site about the theme. Each one got fixed almost immediatly. So I change my rate from 4 to 5 stars without a doubt. This theme is definitly a must have.
This is the first theme that I adopt immediatly after preview it. I had to modify some scripts to translate some texts into french for my blog but it definitely worth it (fixed). A really great job.
Simple and flexible 5/5
