Good theme but flawed
By , for WP 4.4.1

I really like the design and flexibility of this theme. It's nice, clean and free, BUT, thee are a few flaws that need addressing.

1. When you make a change to the theme in the customisation screen it dumps a shed-load of CSS in the header. It's just messy.

2. Latest update, they changed a function of_get_options() to spacious_options() without any backward compatibility which broke any site using it with a child theme. This is a basic mistake that should never be made... In fact, with the 30+ themes I've used, not one has ever been so lax in its releases!

Nice theme but bad updates
By , for WP 4.3.1

The theme is pretty good. But...

Renaming functions without actually testing of what could happen if someone was using the old name of the function is a bit irresponsible. Having tickets for more than a week on the issue that leads to sites with child themes being down (error 500 on any front-end page) is actually a serious issue.

Header slider not completely responsive
By , for WP 3.7

Slider in the header is very nice and clean, but unfortunately it is not completely responsive on small screens (like smartphones).
If you insert more than 10-12 words in the slider title, in small screens the container of the title overlaps the main menu and menu is not readable: that's a quite big issue!

Good if you don't customize
By ,

This free version is good if you don't want to customize it much and stick to what you see. Otherwise for the $39 for the pro version, you can get better themes out there with better documentation and faster support and many more features.
