NO SUPPORT

I paid $40 for this theme. It should have been free. There is no support and it will not even allow a real logo to be on the heading page. Ridiculous.

I choose this theme over many paid themes....

Excellent is an understatement. I have purchased and used many Vivid themes and I got to say every one is great. I am going back now to review them. I am never let down with any vivid theme and this is no exception. The simple fact the thought put into this as far as SEO and Documentation. Thanks again Michael for top-shelf work.

PS after designing close to 20 c5 sites Vivid is still my first choice for themes and addons!

What about a multilingual menu?

I've been trying to use this theme in a multilingual website but the menu doesn't respond well. Instead of showing only the menu items according to the language, it shows all of them.
Apart from that it's a great theme. Is there a way of making the menu show only the menu items according to the language?

Responsiveness

gmatik
This is a great theme but it does not seem to be responsive with the latest browsers (only with some oldschool mobile browsers) and the font replacement has some issues with IE 9&10. Theme support does not seem to exist at all.

Great Theme

This would be my favorite theme.
Unfortunately it is not supporting latin characters in the nav per default.
For those not depended on an extended font set e.g. in the header NAV have a look.

updated:
Could have save time myself if I would have found this earlier ;-)

Modern, clean, professional look

I have browsed the themes collection for hours, but there is simply no other theme as convincing as Rigid Light!
Without any webdesign knowledge whatsoever, you will be able to get a very professional-looking website with a very clear design that isn't too "fancy" or overloaded.
Thanks a lot for making this great theme available for free!

Fantastic

You can scour the entire free theme library if you want to but you will end up coming back to this. Super clean and easy to customize to your liking. Outstanding job on this theme!

I need help with this:)

Nice theme, congrats for your work mate. I have a problem with it, when I tried to add the simple logo, I followed your instructions but when I tried to apply it, I see " There are no custom templates available".

I am wondering what I am doing wrong. Can you please help?

revised:

Oooops. I missunderstood, I thought that there would be a custom template to choose but in your instructions you say that I should create one with the name " My_Site_Name"
:):)

Everything is ok now. I created the custom template and everything is working just fine !

sorry for all the trouble:)

Great---NO the BEST Free Theme!

Thanks Vivid - this theme is superb and beyond that easy to use. Your help page on the demo site was all I need to make my site look beautiful. Keep up the good work. CTA spaces are very helpful. This theme is what concrete5 is all about.

Great theme!

This is quite possibly the best free theme available! Not only is the code easy to understand so that you can customise it, the developer is also available to answer any further questions or point you in the right direction of an answer if you need it.
I would say this is definitely one of my favourite themes to work with.

Thanks Michael G!

Thanks for the Theme and the additional Add-ons

I first starting using it just as it was but found I could reduce the number of pages and add my own twist to it. It took a few days but I think it turn out great. http://www.portmoodycurling.ca

Willing to share it back.

Great Theme

This is one of the best theme I've ever used in C5 as it is easily customizable.

Great Theme that works well

I haven't been using Concrete5 for a while but I still managed to get this theme to do everything it is supposed to do. It looks great and so far works very well.
Thanks Much!

Thanks for this theme

I have downloaded this theme, because it was clean and elegant.

I have adjusted some things and that was easy to do, you can play with it and still is a nice theme.

But i have one problem to overcome, in IE 9.0 the website is messed up all the text is aligned to the left and no images are showing,

Thank you, Michael. Great Theme.

So, I'm no developer or designer, but when some guy tried to charge my Mom mucho dinero to build her business a simple website I figured I'd give it a shot.

I needed something simple and eye-catching that I could edit easily. Also consider that it's a new business (and every penny went to office furniture :-) ), so there was no extra money for buying a theme or paying for custom work - in steps Rigid-Light.

This theme is simple, classy, flexible, and makes light work of making our little firm look good. I can get my point across quickly and clearly.

I found it easy to edit the logo, change colors, and anything else with a little bit of server-side effort. Any trouble I had was with C5 block manipulation (getting areas to line up perfectly), not the theme.

Also, when I had a question about how the fonts worked, Michael responded relatively quickly, which is unexpected for a free product.

Site is coming up well, and I'm still toying with colors, but I just wanted to take a second to say thanks, Mike. This was an excellent starting point for us.

[REVISED]

Looks good from the outset, but what you will find is the logo is simply plain text and the banner works poorly. No developer support.

Very unhappy.

[REVISED]

It seems there was a problem in the support system and that the developer was no ignorant in any way, shape or form. I am in contact with him to resolve the issues and I am satisfied that we will find a good resolution.

No developer support? I don't see one ticket you've opened up in the support section:http://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/themes/rigid-light/support/...

Additionally, 1 star because you don't like the logo? The logo is what it is. A free add-on the simply styles some text to match the site (as seen in the demo). If you want to add your own logo, you can easily do that. but leaving me 1 star because you don't like the logo? What about the fact that the design is coded well, is responsive, works works well in mobile browsers, and looks professional? That's more than half of what the PAID themes can say.

Before 2.0

Rigid Lite Theme Rules! MichaelG where the "G" must stand for GENIUS!

Michael,
Thanks so much for this theme. You're work is incredible, I've been all over your site and can't wait to close my first deal so I can pay you, well first just pay you as a thank you, secondly to customize some of the coloring and also to have you add a blog page for me, I don't see where this theme supports a blog? I recently started a business brokerage firm and am designing the site now, check it at outhttp://www.kempirepacific.com. Pretty sure I found a buyer for one of the 5 businesses I'm selling so wish me luck so I can put you to work on a few things for me. You're work is inspiring and makes me wish I were creative and knew programming better than I do. Thanks again!

Elegant Looks and good SEO performance (website grader)

Arby
I like Rigid Light, it's clean, modern, uses a nice blend of colours, enhances my site and not just the aesthetics!
Concerning SEO, compared to several other (also good-looking & reliable) themes I've tried, straight out of the box Rigid Light appears to offer 10%+ (in Websitegrader.com terms) greater level of SE optimisation. Using the special blocks (Call-to-Action, VCard) appears to enhance SEO further.
For me Rigid Light sits well with another C5 Marketplace option I'm using called SEO Manager.

Thanks for noticing that. Out of the box, we make sure ALL of our themes are written correctly with proper hierarchy and semantics. We consult frequently with a local SEO firm and truly have a lot of pride in our themes. Thanks for the professional review.

Something Elegant.

Clean elegant theme. There is a great theme here, it has proportion and a great deal of style, really great little add-on tweaks, only one thing could make it better, if it were free...Oh. guess what...it is.

Thanks Michael

Great theme and easy to tweak.

3CGroup
This is a great theme and offered with some great add-ons. The call to action blocks are really simple and easy to add. If you like something different for the numbers just add your own icons.

Michael added also an index.html file so it easy to tweak the css and instantly see the result.

It's absolutely worth 5 stars!

Simple but looks elegant

mkharisecario
This theme is provided with every parts needed, that make it different from other theme. From slider to logo!
Theme color feels so calm and elegant, im not recomended to change it into another color.
Support and help at demo page will help you a lot if you get some problem with this theme. Just 1 word : Awesome!
Review posted by agpate on at

Professional and just plain awesome

Michael clearly has a good eye for creating themes and this one—free, no less!—is no exception. The colour scheme is subtle, the fonts are cool and the whole theme looks slick. Getting this theme is a no-brainer.

To be fair, there are a couple of little tricks you need to get your head around (such as how to get the site title to display properly) but there information on how to do this on the theme's page in the marketplace.

Even if a solution doesn't present itself on the website, there's always the forum and support links. What makes Michael's theme even more impressive is that he genuinely cares about what he's doing. This is evident when you need support; the response time is excellent. I don't think I've ever had to wait more than 24 hours for a response (and a solution!).

After using this free theme, you'll be so impressed, I wouldn't be surprised if you bought his other themes. I did and they were worth every penny!
