Mobile views

Although it says this is a responsive theme the navbar on tablet and mobile isn't as you'd expect them to be...

Just look at this link on your mobile device:http://dotawesome.isitvivid.com/cool/...

Would be really nice it it followed a standard 'collapsed' navigation on mobile to save space.

I have found that I am now trying to implement this myself to improve the UI/UX :(

I don't understand why this warrants a 2 star review? The theme is indeed responsive, but not in the browser, as this is a negative experience for end users (even though it's super cool to look at in the browser when you're a designer). Additionally the ipad view is available in the screenshots so you know exactly what it looks like BEFORE purchasing...

Also, as this theme is now a few years old, it doesn't follow a "standard" collapsed navigation, as it wasn't really quite "standard" at the time. We may release an update to update the type of nav to a little more modern, but in either case, I don't think any of these things warrant 2 stars. Especially when you know by the demo the appearance everything will be.

Missing HR

Sorry, it is "<div class="dotAwesomeHr"></div>" in a HTML Block, (not <div class="ccm-spacer"></div>)

Would you mind deleting this? You just averaged in 2x 3-star reviews...

Annoyances, Annoyances

First, it's the most beautiful layout I ever used!
Usually I do a lot of changes in the CSS. In this layout, I made only a few.

But, annoyances, Annoyances...
There are small bug and some thing could been have build better.
Examples:
- Slider has background image that contains parts of the layer beneath (should be transparent)
- not responsive on a desktop browser until changes in css
- h4 bigger then h3 rather than define different css portion
- PHP errors here and there
- HTML source not nicely formatted

@Malko:
Just add an HTML Block with "<div class="ccm-spacer"></div>" and you have the same as the missing "HR block"

As I said, not serious issues for somebody knowing PHP and CSS, but a lot of small imperfections.

I will certainly use it more than once. I hope the quality will improve

- we don't believe a website should be responsive in the browser, but we're happy to let anyone know how to make those changes.

- The H4 is smaller in y-height than the H3. We didn't style h5/h6, because it would end up smaller than the body text.

- Really? Where? Did you ever write a support ticket about the errors? I don't think there's any PHP errors anywhere?

- HTML is METICULOUSLY formatted. as is the CSS.

Shoot me an email as to what can improve at [email protected], and we'll be happy to make these changes.

I love this theme!

Besides this being a great looking theme, I was really impressed with the video tutorial on how to set up the home page. It was easy to put together with Michael’s step-by-step instructions.

Thanks for making my first experience working on a website an awesome one!

UPDATE 10/14/12: I just wanted to follow up here and say that Michael from Vivid gave me top-notch support after encountering a problem with an update. He promptly solved the problem and I could not recommend this theme more!

Before 2.0

Great so far

The theme is really well put together and flexible. The "extras" included, along with the help and support have been great.

Best theme I have tried

Great attention to detail. All the major blocks have a custom templates. Supports was very quick after I found a bug with the navigation. He got back to me within 20m and had a fix few hours later.

I did think $50 was a bit steep when I bought it but after I installed it I now think it's the bargain of the century. In particular the image slider and other included blocks really make this one of the best value themes on concrete5.org
