I think the best
By , for WP 3.9.1

I started my <a href="http://zonartobotdecocina.com"> robot de cocina</a> three months ago and I had no problems with this theme. It´s very intuitive and easy to learn.

Good but tiny MENU button won't expand on cell phone
By , for WP 3.5

Trying to use this for a client. When viewing website in landscape mode on a cell phone, clicking on the Menu button does nothing. Anyone know how to fix this?

Uh, the Developer(s) need to learn the business model
By , for WP 3.5

I quoted my client a certain amount time to develop his site, not realizing I was going to have an extra 3-4+ hr learning curve. I'm looking all over the place to make customizations. Foul. And I do not like- nor understand- why I spend time getting my images to look nice while WP thinks its ok to re-size them. No developer works that way. I get the REM stuff- but why everything is so hidden seems to be poor planning. Still- better than I could do on my own I guess.

Darn Good for Computers, Not so Much for Mobile
By , for WP 3.5

Everything is very clean and displays nicely on computers and tablets. Upon viewing my website on my Samsung Exhibit II, the sidebars are shifted to the very bottom of the page which isn't so good because sidebars are meant to be in plain view to a site visitor not shoved all the way to the bottom. Also I noticed that Floating social buttons doesn't display at all.

Steep learning curve for me
By , for WP 3.5

Didn't like taking away some items that I counted on in Twenty Eleven like the "Posted on" function and taking away the 3 widget areas in the footer and the search box in the Navigation bar.

You should have made them optional for us to have or not - not just remove the code without a heads up.

Also not a fan of how hard it is to override the styles and colors of some of the CSS selectors like widget links and caption text. Even using !Important doesn't always work.

Love the ability to use external image links in the media button to save on coding them myself but since I can't easily correct the code that shows up it is a wash. The alignright alignleft classes don't work in the RSS feeds so images look wrong.

The new REM sizing is hard to learn and seems to add to the size of css files but I'm glad to get the chance to learn this new standard before I have to use it.

I like the mobile first focus but really could use some tutorials and guide on how to create and edit my child theme to take advantage of the new gizmos in 2012.

Confusing for Newbies
By , for WP 3.5-1

Outwardly, the default theme view is bright and clear, but inward, the code is muddled by unneeded complexity. I was instantly stymied just trying to expand the theme's max width from 960px to 990px. I guide to editing the theme would have been welcomed.
