Make

Average Rating
4.4 out of 5 stars
Flexible and Easy to Customize for Developers
By , for WP 4.2.4

I've been very pleased with the Make theme. I'm using it on three very different websites, with three very different looks and functions, to a great result.

What I like most about working with Make is how well commented and documented the theme is. For a developer, this is a dream. It allows me a stable, beautiful launchpad, and lets me focus on customizing every little detail of the look and feel without having to get rid of a million UI images, rework color schemes, and so forth. A great jumping off point - similar to genesis and headway in its versatility. The best things about Make? Great support, the lightweight, valid code and free price tag.

Im in love again with the Make theme!

I wish that I could edit my original review below, or just delete it. I had some major frustrations that have been worked out by the lovely staff at Theme Foundry. I went from loving the Make theme to being disappointed and now Im back to loving it!

It simply is an amazing theme once you play around in the customizer, it looks great with the colour scheme and the builder templates are great!

Why does the screen grab look nothing like the preview website? I was impressed with the screen grab and then let down once I viewed the preview.

Flexibility, simplicity, great theme!

Recently I discovered this theme and I'm using it for many wordpress websites, it is very flexible and simple to use. Great theme, thanks!

Muchas posibilidades
By , for WP 4.0.1

El tema make para wordpress es un tema con muchísimas posibilidades. La mayoría de temas sobretodo los gratuitos ofrecen muy pocas posibilidades y tienen un nivel de customización pobre. Make, permite construir look and feel extendidos sin tener ningún conocimiento de programación con resultados similares a los profesionales. Desde luego yo recomiendo su uso para probarlo y decidir.

Much more than just a theme

The Make theme is perfect for one...
...if one likes Make's minimal design approach
...if one is a website owners who needs a theme that just works
...if one is not a designer and not a developer (but they will like I too I guess) and
...if one doesn't know how to build an advanced page structure and
...if one wants to fill it with misc. content.

Part of Make’s beauty is that it provides an intuitive and direct approach (in a way as Headway and other drag and drop themes and plugins do it too) but at the same time it doesn’t open an almost endless set of choices and settings which overburden an average user. A good example for this are the text columns one can insert with the Make Builder: there is a sensible choice for the number of columns and the choice to make one column wider; but one doesn’t to have to decide how wide each column has to be in % and what the margin, padding, etc. is. And that’s perfect! It’s a Make design pre-set that makes sense and makes sure that one gets a good looking site.

Make's functionality can be extended even further with the Make Plus premium plugin. It's not cheap but worth the price.

What makes Make outstanding too is the Make team. The Make guys provide an excellent and friendly support. They really care.

Make is a great theme and much more than that.

The teme is good - pro upgrade too expensive
By , for WP 4.0

I've been using Make for a while. It is excellent, and robust. The lack of Woocommerce support and other features will direct you towards a pro purchase which is logical. But, I find it to be too expensive these days with a $99 yearly fee if you want support and theme updates.

So if I use Make for a site that runs for 5 years and I want updates.. that's $495..

Take a hint on modern pricing from the other market leading theme foundries.

Very happy with Make.

I've been using Make extensively over the last couple of months. It's a fantastic theme for quickly prototyping layouts (lazy developer checking in, wassup?) or building simple sites for side projects.

The semantic markup and clean CSS makes it very easy to tweak with nothing more than a Custom CSS plugin.

Caveats: I'd like to see more documentation for building child themes. I'm having trouble finding any docs around hooks and filters for Make. :(
