No thumbnail... ?
By , for WP 4.1

I am really surprised that this theme has no thumbnail...
Add it manually but no more after an update.

Not sure it lives up to the hype

The first "negative" review? Maybe people are hesitant because they see the dev responds to every review? It's a nice theme, and the ability to add the large header image with the transparent scrolling is pretty impressive. I chose it because of it's near perfect rating. Are any of these people using a sidebar? Because I thought it made for an absolutely horrible sidebar. Widgets unevenly spaced, widgets crashing into each other, and widgets that were only half-covered by the widget background color. My sidebar looked so horrible that I had to change. I'm still a wordpress newbie, but the theme I eventually chose as a replacement had several of their own theme widgets, such as an "up button", and social media sharing, where Radiate had nothing of the sort. Perhaps relying solely on third party widgets is a problem? All I know is I had one of the worst looking sidebars I've ever seen on a blog. Worse even than some kid's blogger.com blog :-)
