The theme doesn't even let you change the details on the front page unless you 'upgrade'.
It makes the whole wordpress experience unpleasant when people create spam-themes.
Unlike some of the other comments on here using the free themes and not getting access to essential features, I actually purchased a $39 membership and STILL don't have access to all the features of the theme I bought. What's worse is that Nimbus advertises 'support' yet I've contacted them twice and still no response. In my last email to their customer support I requested a refund for false advertising. We'll see how much they're concerned with their quality of service. WordPress should not affiliate themselves with Nimbus!
This beautiful theme works well as a paid, Pro theme; I was able to customize it to my specifications. The support was excellent. Note that purchasing the theme automatically enrolls the buyer in ongoing monthly billing for continued support. You must make a point of cancelling the subscription so you aren't billed.
Avoid at all possible costs.
I LOVE the Nimbus Simple theme...and I don't have a paid membership. The beautiful, large banner is what drew me to this theme and it hasn't disappointed at all - I've been able to personalize it as much as I've needed. Plus all of the support that Evan Scoboria has provided (for my computer challenged brain) has been excellent - quick, detailed, and patient. I highly recommend Nimbus themes!
As the name implies, this theme is pretty SIMPLE to setup/implement. However, I have run into a few snags based solely on my poor CSS skills. The support I have received from Kendall has been outstanding. Any problem that I have had has been answered (and fixed) by her within a couple of hours. To me, this is hands-down the most important feature of a theme - SUPPORT!
I'm a Nimbus fan now!
I really like the clean look of this theme, and was impressed by the support provided. Nice work!
As others have pointed out, this "free" theme is anything but. You can only do the most basic of tasks without having to pay to be able to modify areas of the theme that every other free theme allows you to modify. WordPress should not allow this to be a choice of one of their free themes. BOOOOO NIMBUS.
Nice and simple theme
Why not be up front that MANY of the features listed are not free? I can't even add a banner without purchasing a membership. I like the theme otherwise, but I am hesitant to pay in case the lack of transparency about the free features is a reflection of the kind of support and function I'll receive. Not impressed.
