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.
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!
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!
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.
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 comments replying to this comment were made in response to a poor review I made which I've taken back.
Fabulous theme, very strong on aesthetics, functionality and versatility even with the free download (page options, layouts, Google fonts, galleries, columns, and more), and if you upgrade to Make Plus, which is a paid plugin, via the Theme Foundry, you get extra options (more page individualisation, forum support, widgets built into pages, & more). Free theme comes with Google fonts built into the customiser, Plus includes Typekit as well. Child theme provided.
The Theme Foundry folks also really friendly.
Bin schon lange Fan von TheThemeFoundry... Sie haben Themes die einfach, aufgeräumt und professionell gemacht sind. Mit Make ist man noch zusätzlich sehr flexibel. Ich habe mir das Make Plus gekauft und bin gespannt auf die Zusatzfeatures.
This is a groundbreaker in the WordPress theme market. I'm still in absolute shock that it's available 100% for free.
This theme is so much more than a theme. It is a fully integrated page-building solution. It's the first theme (or plugin) I've used that really does a good job of easily creating complex page layouts. For people who do client sites, it's what WordPress has been sorely needing for years.
This theme is for you if:
— You ever wanted to build complex layouts in your theme's pages, but don't want to, or can't, do it in code.
— You find it difficult to hand off sites to clients because they can't manage the custom HTML you've written
— Want to easily use Google fonts in your theme (they're all ready to use here)
— You've used smart page-building systems like Squarespace has and thought, "ARRGG WordPress needs this!!"
— Want a fully capable theme customizer that will let you visually adjust almost anything you can think of on the front end of your site.
You need to download and try out this theme. It could very well change the way you develop sites.
