What People Say About SimpleMag
Hi ThemesIndep, fantastic theme, I have used many premium themes and SimpleMag is probably the most efficient I know. Very easy to set up and no bugs on my side until now. I have more than 700 posts and lots of images and everything works fine.
We purchased this theme for our magazine, and, like most themes, there are some things that need tweaking for particular need. The support we’ve received has been nothing less than spectacular, fast, and professional. The theme itself is lovely and functional and we could not be happier. Thanks!
Just wanted to say that I have just purchased the theme and I am now officially in love! Simple to personalize and great design…....thank you!
This is an absolute gem! Fantastic theme, and the 2.0 update uncludes all the additional features I need! Keep up the great work guys.
To anyone considering purchasing this theme: don’t hesitate, just buy it, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a beautiful theme with fast and helpful support. I’m really happy with it.
I recently purchased your theme. Super user friendly! And very clean. Great work! I’m not a coder but your theme has my site looking better than the company I hired to do the site for me. Just wish I had found this theme earlier. I could have saved money and time.
Your theme has made my dreams of launching a minimal, clean and visually stunning magazine come true! You are very thorough in your documentation and this is especially important for someone like me who can’t decipher coding. Thanks so much for your creativity and I look forward to future themes that you will create!
Been a member on themeforest since it launched and this is easily my favorite purchase. So easy to use.
Just gave the theme five stars. I think it’s easily the best news/magazine site on ThemeForest from a UX standpoint. That’s the only reason I have so many questions, requests and ideas! Anyone reading this should know that I recommend they purchase this theme without hesitation. They won’t be disappointed!
I’m a Theme Forest member since September 2008 and i’ve purchased a lot of items during this time. In my modest opinion, SimpleMag is the best theme ever in the Envato Marketplace. I had this felling after the first “Live Preview” click. You already have my 5 Stars.
