I have been working with this theme for about a year and have come to love it more and more-most especially for its simplicity matched with its tight (actually its Raison d'être) integration with SiteOrigin's own PageBuilder.
From what I have seen from other page builders - which could be more powerful for marketing sites - SiteOrigin's is the no-nonsense backbone I want for the healthcare site I built and am running.
For a no-frills abroad that allows you to model, remodel, and eventually perfect a very functional design-go with Vantage.
Support is also second to none - well worth upgrading to Premium.
Merci Greg, and team, from Quebec!!
After trying the "influence" theme of SiteOrigin, I want to get more from them. I found the "Vantage", after trying the free version, which already nearly satisfied my requirement, I decided to buy the premium version. And definitely this premium theme is worth every penny. I will keep using it and give my further feedback.
I love the clean, simple layout for this theme. However the responsive menu only available for Premium theme, which is a critical part for those who are looking simple, free responsive themes.
I do not mind paying for sticky navigation menu, however, paying for responsive is quite surprising. My client end up walk away from this theme for this reason.
Anyway, thanks for the good theme, still I will recommend this theme next time for those clients who willing to pay.
After purchasing the premium theme, I had one issue with the masthead (header). Support returned my email within 24 hours and the issue was fixed within 36 hours of initial contact.
Before I purchased the premium version, I had to make sure it worked with MetaSlider, to remove the default slider and its images, which it did without problems. I tested out everything I could before purchasing the premium theme. It passed my tests with flying colors. The support you get with the premium version is phenomenal. AAA Rating with me, all the way around.
Not impressed at all. At least let us try the full version for a limited timer before asking for money.
Nothing is intuitive on this theme. Everything either has a steep learning curve, or it requires you to upgrade to something premium. The meta slider required me to go pro before I could get the Vantage ad photos off my front page. No thanks. I do buy premium themes, but I'm not going to buy something and buy upgrades to plug ins just to see if it will work.
Exactly what I needed. Easy to customize (even for a newbie like myself) .
Makes making your own website a fun task. Thanks in part to the documentation in developer's site, which is awesome. I learned so much by just reading through it.
Vantage is really awesome.
It is like a new way in using wordpress. The page builder is very cool!
The look and lightness are impressive.
What I love about it:
- font size of the content can be adjusted effortlessly. I don't need to write all the content on Live Writer anymore or writing a code in the style.css
- the page builder layout is exclusive, very simple yet sophisticated
Still enjoy playing around with my new site with Vantage Premium. It really feels like playing!
Its a great design and great concept.
Decrease the bloat in the dash, my major suggestion.
Started off with the free version to take it for a test drive. One of the best that I had seen and used, and I was quickly a fan. Plus for $15 you can unlock all of the premium content. I took the plunge and would not bother looking back. Worth every penny and then some.
Be sure to also use with Site Builder plugin from SiteOrigin as well for the ultimate ease of use experience. Highly recommended, and I plan to check out their other themes in the future.
