for Bugs

Can't even find out where to get help with this. Bought this theme yesterday, spent 14 hours setting it up.

Went to bed, woke up to work on it today and all the sections withing the "Homepage" just gone, poof/vanished. My site is still live somehow, but I have no way to edit any of the sections. I literally did nothing on there in between last night and today.

My version is the newest, and I followed the documentation to a T. I don't understand how sections just disappear from the "Homepage" when I didn't change anything. I have zero plugins running either.

If I can get a fix that doesn't require me starting over I will change this review!

Sorry but this is inappropriate rating. Issue is not theme-related but it has likely to do with the database or hosting.

for Flexibility

There are certain design choices that does not makes the theme great for certain types of blogs - e.g. hiding the nav on mobile/tablet devices.

I am revising my first critical review for good reasons: After excellent support by the developer, the theme worked like a charm. I chose this theme for it's elegant and basis style, but really appreciated the customization possibilities, which are in fact quite straightforward and more than sufficient for a single page starters small company website. Inside the download package you'll find clear instructions how to edit, and even a guide to edit the Photoshop elements that are included in the example page. The theme worked also fine on mobile devices. For end-users with little or no experience in website building this is an excellent theme to start with. The only reason for not giving a 5-star ranking was the fact that I experienced a hick-up during installation, which was resolved later on.

Awesome design, good documentation and customization. Fantastic work.

for Design Quality

Great theme! (I had a similar one for InDesign and love it too.) I'm able to customize what I want to customize, however, it seems that there is problem (again) with the media buttons that don't do anything but only on the "Slider" section. For example I can't load my logo, or put new images in the slider or words under the slides(all dimensions are right). In short, I have to go to FTP and remove theme demo images and upload mine but with the same name so that the theme picks it up correctly. (Can't delete them or add new from the WP-Admin interface under homepage -> All Sections -> Slider).Not sure if that's WP4.6.1 issue or the theme needs a "refresher" code. It seems the problem affects only the slider section (of the homepage). Anyways, it'd be great if that can be fixed. But, regardless, a great theme!

for Customizability

Nice theme. Easy to customize. Took some time to understand pages/onepager and the navigation logic.
