The theme is absolutely perfect for my current use. Each section is easy to configure via the customize tab and the content is displayed clearly throughout. Another added bonus is that this theme is focused on achieving a fast loading speed, which Google love - thank you to the developers of this theme. Keep up the great work. Paul.

Good:
• Well done design

Bad:
• Needs several updates. Never updated the template
• Without custom sized images for all layout modes
• No custom template for search
• Needs better customization for skins / colors
• Not as fast as they claim here.

Hi there,
thanks for your review and both positive and constructive feedback :)
Feel free to reach out directly to us here
https://commercegurus.freshdesk.com/support/tickets/new

I'd love to know about what this means:
"Needs several updates. Never updated the template"

Re: this one
"Without custom sized images for all layout modes " - I do believe we do have custom sized images for all major layout modes - again if you'd like to provide some more specifics we'll take a look.

Re: "No custom template for search"
Can you explain in more detail what you mean? The theme uses the native WordPress search function.

Re: "Needs better customization for skins / colors"
if you can tell us where you would like additional options we'll consider them

Re: "Not as fast as they claim here"
It definitely is :)
I just ran 3 different tests - just now
PageSpeed - 100/100 https://i.imgur.com/wTBDDpo.png
WebPageTest - 5 A's http://www.webpagetest.org/result/170724_S7_15KV/
Pingdome - Load Time - 1.35 secs https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/d5ucX8/http://themedemo.commercegurus.com/newspread/

Again - if you need help achieving those speeds please contact us.

Best,

Colm

for Code Quality

A lot of code errors. For example, code for single_cat_title does not work.

Hi there

Can you send an example of what you're trying to do via the 'Support' tab above? The theme doesn't obviously touch any core WordPress function so there should be no issue with this.

Just installed Newspread and had everything up and running on my site in less than 10 minutes. I'm blown away - this is quite simply the BEST Magazine style WordPress theme I've ever purchased! The customizer is so easy to use and I had the theme colors tweaked in a few minutes to match by brand. My site now loads twice as fast too which is awesome - thanks guys!

for Design Quality

This is the magazine theme I'd been waiting for. Newspread is one of the most thought out magazine themes I've used. It's incredibly lightweight and easy to setup while at the same time maintaining a design that looks balanced and professional on both mobile and desktop. I'm going to use it on a publication that's in production so I'm testing it on a staging server with no caching or any other performance tuning. Loading in just over 1 second that will probably fall to below 1 second in production. The Elementor page builder is included but you don''t actually need it to get the same layout you see on the demo. That's all done with the wordpress customizer, incredibly easy to complete. I already had content, after regenerating thumbnails it took about 10 minutes to set the theme up perfectly without needing to import any data.

You've made my day - thanks so much Andy!

for Customer Support

Newspread looks great but looks alone don't cut it for me anymore - support does. So far, support has been outstanding. Probably in the top 5 themes for support in my many years of working with WordPress.
