Just installed the latest extended version of this theme and it worked well for what I wanted it to do. I love the header animation and I tested it on Pingdom.com and it was very fast 1.6 second loading time with also using cloudflare on my hosting site. There were couple of little bugs I found and I got super service right away. I created a temp login and someone went into the site and fixed it for me. So very happy with it.
REALLY LOVE THIS THEME IT LOKS ATTRACTIVE AND WORKS BEAUTIFULLY
The free version was nice and easy to use, but many links were broken, or weren't there at all. We really liked the design so we decided to buy the extended version - BIG MISTAKE.
It took a whole day to get a message telling that there was a link in some obscure place we could now download from.
We installed it and ALL our links were broken. Nothing worked anymore and it was necessary a masters in SunRain to adapt it to our designs - and of course no tutorials to help out. And of course, no proper service to help us out. Our site is offline and we have a BIG headache.
- Now we are trying to get our money back. Never again D5Creation themes!
You asked for an honest review so I will give one. You want to have a great theme that has huge respect and make people ask for more? Then make sure it passes pretty close on w3c.org and Google PageSpeed Insights. Test this in browser shots and beta.screenqueri.es.
Now, to give details about what I am saying here;
1. it passes pretty well for w3c and pagespeed insights, but could be better.
2. Does not do well in screenqueri though. The header is not mobile responsive, it looks like you forgot about that in coding.
3. Editing restrictions: you have these 5 elements or points with photos with a really cool hover effect but no way to make those images clickable.
4. You give an option when creating a page to choose the home page as the template, but if you set this as your static home page, none of the content appears. I would assume this would have appeared under the or above the Latest Blog Posts section.
I know this is a free theme, but these are what makes you stand out over the rest. I will update my star rating if you fix these.
Contact me if you need more advice.
Granted it looks fresh and standard, but more or less a death trap. Take it down and fix it before upload for the public and stop causing people so much pain and misery.
The good news again, it that it looks great and is a clean fresh design. The graphics are original. This free version of theme is pretty, but lacks some basic customization. For example, there are words at the bottom that make the theme useful for only those who have blog items to post or those users who want a big map at the bottom of their home page. This version seems to emphasize developer decision over customization. Since I am working for a nonprofit, they cannot afford the paid version, so I had hoped the free version offered more customization. I have read ALL the documentation and worked with this theme extensively.
I love this theme for my site maybe the best one Ive seen
We expect that users will check all theme options before giving any negative rating. You should activate the Responsive Layout from the SunRain Options.
this theme is tagged "responsive layout", but it is not responsive out of the box
