After trying out several themes when I was new to WP, I was so happy when I found Vantage. SiteOrigin makes things easy for folks who don't care to monkey with code all day (you can certainly do that if you want though). The crisp clean layout is perfect for business sites like mine. Thanks SiteOrigin!
The developers of this theme truly care about the people using their material. The vantage theme comes with many flexible editing tools that allows one to customize the theme to suit your needs. Although it wasn't necessary, I paid for the premium version because it came with a few more features and invaluable support. It's a great theme, but what makes it even better is the level of support that they give you. The developers are extremely friendly and I've never had to wait more than 24 hours to get my questions answered. They provide amazing customer service and it's a theme that I'll probably be telling all of my friends about.
This theme works even better with the free SiteOrigin Page Builder plugin because you can do so much more with it - without having to know anything about coding.
I've been using Joomla for a few years now and needed a site that used WordPress instead for a mate that has no technical knowledge. I'm not a programmer and this is the first time I've used WordPress, I went with the Vantage Theme because it fitted all my needs. I started with the free version, and soon upgraded to the paid version for the extras it gives. The only issue I had was with an image in the header widget intermittently dropping slightly below the menu bar. The email support I received was brilliant, the problem was quickly fixed with some extra css code easily added using the built in 'custom css' option.
Great template, great price and thanks to you guys at SiteOrigin :-)
This theme is great! As a free theme is has a lot to offer and with the pro version you can go even farther. The support is amazing. Thanks!
I can't really find words to describe how this theme made my life easy in designing my website. As a total inexpert of CSS and php languages, I couldn't even believe in what I actually became able to do with this theme and the related plugin SiteOrigin CSS: a "what you see is what you get" tool to modify all aspects of the WordPress site. Really thanks for making this theme and all its related plugins!
Tried several themes and ran into difficulties with each one... THEN stumbled upon Vantage - WOW- LOVE IT! Has some fantastic options with the free version and the premium is quite reasonable so went ahead and upgraded...
Has OUTSTANDING support! Never seen such prompt - thorough replies before- will definitely be using this theme for other clients in the future.. The only drawback is the license is only good for one site - but the price and support will be worth the fee each time in the future...
Now, with all that it does take a bit of getting used to navigating the customizing - the meta slider was one setting I couldn't find in the beginning and it wasn't showing up. Had to tweak the footer a bit and still working on getting the header exactly how I want it although its just about there and quite functional for now... here is my temp site http://9aa.507.myftpupload.com/ http://9aa.507.myftpupload.com/
will eventually be live at nameitframeitmetalbuildings.com (currently that is a temp non-wp and non vantage webpage)
Of the hundreds of thousands of themes out there, honing on this one to help build websites for my clients was worth the hunt.
Keep up the EXCELLENT work and thanks again.

I have many website and for all I have used Vangage Theme.
Each time when I had problems with my website, because I did not know how to customize something, I used the support offered by Vantage. I received an answer in the same day. I personally, I recommend them with great pleasure.
Vantage theme is very easy to configure and is improving every day.
The theme is easily customizable. It has a multitude of things that can be adjusted in the way you want to look on your website.
The Vantage theme worked until the 4.4 wordpress release,
from that moment people started to complain about their websites being
practically defaced, the culprit being the theme plus their proprietary plugin
Page Builder. The owners reply to every one of them that "nobody else had this problem before" and they even erase threads reporting such problems.
For their premium themes, the creators pretend beta testing from clients, and reporting a problem on their website is more time consuming and senseless than recreating a new website. Therefore, beside waking up with a broken website, you will have to face also the poor ethics and tech-mockery of the so-called support, with not much constructive outcome. Stay away from it, better go for a real theme!
