I am extremely impressed by the abilbities, options and overall ease of use that Vantage Premium adds. For those wondering if the premium version is worth the money, definitely is worth it and so much more. I have used it a couple times on various websites, each time donating an amount based on what I earn from the clients.
Though the forums are not monitored on the weekends, they will get back to you as soon as they are able. Great support for a fantastic theme!
This is the first time I have submitted a review for a WordPress theme, but I felt compelled to do so.
Vantage is a very nice theme, allowing me to create sites that look classy but unique at the same time.
The free version provides some good basic functionality and the upgrade to Pro gives you a very functional system.
The pricing model does not make you pay a lot for the Pro before trying it - a true open-source concept that lets you try and then pay what you think it is worth.
I upgraded to Pro (at reduced price) to test it for a client and, upon reviewing it, will be upgrading to Pro for the client and paying a real price for a theme that is as good or better than other "Pro" themes that cost $60+.
Nice work Greg and the SiteOrigin team for both creating a great theme and honoring the spirit of open-source
Thanks to SiteOrigin for creating and sharing this theme. Vantage is pretty good theme for a free stuff.
The only thing is: It looks like we need to use a third-party plugin (Meta Slider - Premium) in order to achieve similar slider like in Vantage demo page. I just realized that the slider in the their demo page is built with layers of JPEG and PNG images only. I think it would be great if the author could add built-in custom slider, or at least they could clearly explain about this slider matter in the theme description.
But overall, Vantage theme is good. Thumb up!
I'm creating a business website for a friend and have been through this process about 10-15 times for other friends, artists, bloggers, always using WordPress. Vantage is so beautiful, flexible, elegant and the forums and threads are so plentiful, helpful and specific, that I've just given birth, on my own, to some CSS code to tweak something. OK, there might have been VERY specific instructions via these forums but no-one else is gonna know that. Can't believe this level of sophistication is FREE. Thank you.
I don't often write reviews, but this one I am making a point of doing. Great work guys. It's professional, fully responsive, looks amazing, and really customisable. Love it! :)
I loved this theme, I have one query shall I use your theme for my personal site (Non wordpress CMS)
I really liked the theme.
thanks and regards,
This is the best Theme ever. With the endless amount of customizations available, this might just be the only theme you'd ever need!
Para utilizarlo en una web corporativa o tipo business y no gastar nada en el diseño, no esta nada mal, ya que se adapta muy bien a los nuevos diseños.
Eso si, si puedes gastarte un poco más, recomendaría un theme de pago (si es para una web de empresa por ejemplo)
Excellent theme with lots of good features.
Would highly recommend!
Ive been testing for soem weeks Vantage and so far enough satisfied of the product. And i decided Vantage deserve and bought the pro version which im still discovering all its features.
Fair price for an elegant theme, wide range of customizations and intuitive usage supported by "how to use service" guide satisfying.
With all its plugins it makes vantage very versatile and good alternative to more commercial products.
There are yet margins upgrades, which i do expect to see in the future like: Improved social sharing tools and customizations for blog post and pages. The full compatibility with PB in blog post and, also custom side bars would be a nice addition.
Keep up developing this great theme guys! Good job!
