When I first saw this theme at its introduction post I had reservations about the sidebar - that was at version 0.1.
A lot of work has gone in to making it better now the sidebar issue is just secondary and can be remedied easily with a child theme.
Talking about child themes, already created one and its going live very soon - so watch out for that :)
Overall, in terms of looks and functionality I don't think the theme can be faulted at all - it's still Bold and Beautiful as it was on its introduction.
So far-so good!
Some people have already figured out the sidebar is gone. It's been gone on mobile devices for ages but not it's gone. RIP.
The sidebar used to be a source of ad revenue but has been declining since most people don't click on mobile ads. C'est la vie.
Other than that, I love the new typographic and see a great business for people who can make/sell theme mods. I mean if 3 million people set up their blog with one of the three basis theme header images - yecch! I want to be unique not the same...so something different, something creative has to be done here.
Today, I was quite excited to activate the WordPress Twenty Thirteen Theme (WP 3.6), but had to deactivate it immediately because the sidebar flowed below the footer on short pages. This was rather embarrassing.
I hope there's a way out of this flaw, because the Theme promises to be a great improvement on previous themes by WordPress. I reverted back to WordPress Twenty Eleven Theme, which has no such problem.
I just visited the website of one of the reviewers below and found an example of this problem at http://amsyong.com/daftar-isi/
It's a serious flaw.
I will create a child theme for Twenty Thirteen and translate it to fa_IR
I am Loving it.
