Really satisfied with the overall work!

Beautiful! I simply love it for my personal portfolio website. With a few extra plugins here and there I was able to build my personal, stunning looking place. I love the whole thing and the dark minimal design plus the animations are kiling it. Great job! Thanks!

Author response

Thank you very much for the kind words. I really appreciate it!

This is a really quick, good looking theme and it works well too.

After years of using page builders, I was a little put off by the fact that this worked with the Gutenberg editor, I had always avoided it but honestly, it makes a HUGE difference in speed. It takes some getting used to but it's fine. I do wish there were maybe more block options and more column layouts available though.

The documentation isn't the best but there's not an awful lot to cover and the theme, in general, is sparse on customisations as it's your content that sets it off. I've only had to contact the dev once and they responded to my email with a solution quickly.

I think it could benefit from some updates in future to make it easier for everyone to use (as in users not understanding the slider for example).

Unfortunately seems impossible to receive support.
That's a pitty, because the template looks very nice.

SCENA = GTD X elite minimalist aesthetics X UX heaven :-)

Scena is one of the rare events where design purism and lean usable architecture merge to create something precious without loosing flow anywhere in the process (– the friction caused by bloated themes mostly means you do not build anything, even if the demos look good).

part of what makes the magic of Scena is that the ease and effective minimalism on the backend is matched not only by always aesthetic outcomes – but also by lightning fast performance, which means: the beauty sinks into the deeper levels of user experience.

– result: everyone will be deeply pleased by Scena – without any sweats on any side of the screen!

... now for honesty: while this is a 5✭ theme, obviously, there are some things to remark / note / watch:

1) surely 'documentation' can´t be chosen as a reason for a 5✭ rating of Scena by anyone in his/her mind – as documentation of this theme up to now is... sparse... to say the least.
– not a big problem though, because (mostly) things are super intuitive and ... simple ;-)

2) it starts very (very) classy; but things will be decided by how well these formidable foundations are further developed (e.g. the customizability of some portfolio templates like the carousel has to be extended for titles and descriptions; the tags/categories in PFs are not really interactive; filters are missing... and some other 'teething troubles' :-) )

BUT to give a theme 5✭ given such handicaps means in essence it is a 6✭ theme, really :-D

one can only hope / wish Scena has staying power, and will grow with the WP ecosystem...!!
