Not only do I recommend you purchase this theme, I would go as far as saying that it is the best theme I have purchased on theme forest to date! 5 Stars and I can’t wait to see more from this developer in the future.
Thanks ixtendo! So far this thing is SUPER easy to edit, really nicely CLEANLY coded which makes a big difference. I made a completely custom color scheme using the ‘Find and Replace’ tool in Dreamweaver in a matter of about 30 seconds; and the code is so nicely done I was able to figure out how to create my own “Mega menu” with that sort of dropdown on just one of my main tabs I needed it for, and even that only took me a few minutes. It hasn’t even been 24 hours yet since I’ve purchased & bought the template but I’ve accomplished alot… really workable code, will buy from you again!
Hey guys. Was walking a regular client of mine through some designs on theme forest tonight, and I showed him this one. We had already looked at two other designs, and there were eight in the bookmark collection I put together for him. He told me, “Sam, stop right there. This is the one I want on my site.” So I got it for him.
Thought I would chime in and let you know. It’s really a beautiful piece.
this theme was exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’m using it for the soon-to-come relaunch of my small business website. This design is so clear and crisp, and it is amazing to see how seamlessly it integrates with current smartphone displays without any extra work. Also the Ajax mail form is very nice, for me it worked almost out-of-the-box.
Keep up the good work, and wish you many purchases, of course!
All the best from Berlin, Germany
ixtendo has awesome customer service. I loved working with this template and when I ran into some questions the ixtendo team was there with quick responses and solutions. Great job!
Hi Ixtendo, as I promised in my last comment, I purchased your great theme a second time for another job I made: http://www.biomarkt.com Wish you a big load of sales! Cheeerz!
Hello, I’ve tried a few other templates, but found Finesse to be a complete package, with all options anyone could ask for – and it is very easy to understand and customize. I use very few features and customized (changed!) quite a bit – it’s an awesome template. Ixendo – awesome job! Thank you and much success, Christina http://www.parentingateenager.net
Absolutely outstanding template and even better after sales support, like none other here – thanx again guys!!
Just purchased the theme and I am blown away with the quality of it. The help file is great also. Keep up the great work.
Hi ixtendo, ... again you are the coding-hero! It works fantastic, thanx again. For my next project i’ll buy another license of your great finesse-theme! by the way, here’s the final project: http://www.vesterdruck.de (if you’re interested…)

As a lot of people have mentioned, this is a great template. I have not had any problems building and modifying my PHP site with this great product. I’m spoiled now…the level of documentation and clean, professional coding should be the benchmark!
