Some bugs
By , for WP 3.9.1

Some bugs:
1. Presentation page only in one language: English
2. Presentation page and slider only in one, automatic page
2. All fonts only in latin (no subsets: latin-ext, cyrillic-ext etc.)

It has a beautiful layout and I like it very much.

I'm intend to upgrade my blogspot blog platform to wordpress using this theme. My blog is about how to [link moderated] save electricity.

Beautiful, flexible, highly customable and work with WP 3.8.2
By , for WP 3.8.2

Finding a good wordpress theme is difficult as most of the themes are not up to date and don't work with the last wordpress version (I think I tried about 20 themes and none compare to this one). But this one does and here is what I like:
- This theme works perfectly
- Webmarketing good practises are followed
- Highly customable, I never saw a template with so many options
- 13 color sheme availables but you can also create one and choose your font/colors.
- You can add custom html code on your front page…which is very great as you are not limited to just 3 or 4 headlines to write your argument
- Nice image slider on the front page
- Free but with only a little copyright link on the bottom. You can remove it with the pro version for $25.

Lovely-looking, Highly-Customizable Theme
By , for WP 3.8.2

Parabola is awesome. It is a beautiful layout, and if you don't want to use one of its functionalities, you don't have to. For example, I didn't want to use the slider function, so I just left it blank, and- no slider!!!! Great, and flexible, and I kind of can't believe it is free, because it is just that good. I am no computer whiz, and I got beautiful results.

Easy to customize but some problems
By , for WP 3.8.1

I am satisfied by these theme, especially because easy to customize. But there is some problems, you can't redefine front page in way to setup some right column and stuff like that, you have to use some column that are predefined.

beautiful theme layout but some annoying defects
By , for WP 3.8.1

i like this theme very much - the presets are nice, the design settings menu is easy to handle, and it's styling is slick.
BUT: the styles are all written in the header of every page, which is not a good idea if you want a fast loading website. and including css this way, you take the risk that styling of plugins is always being overwritten. not very elegant.
another thing i find really annoying: the deficient free online support. if cryout creations do not want to deal with questions of people that do not pay for "premium support" they should not offer any free support. in the free support forum there are quiet some threads that have never been replied to by cryout creations. so what is the use of the free forum?

Great

A Great Theme
By ,

After weeks of searching through themes and considering buying several widgets, I finally came across Parabola last year June and was blown away. This theme is the best you're going to find and free. Its got all the bells and whistles including, social media icons, personalization (colors, web fonts, etc.), landing pages, everything you need!

The team at CryoutCreations have really done a great job. Cheers.
