The support team is very helpful. Most things can be modified by yourself, but if you have a need that requires editing the theme code, they are able to help out in a timely fashion.

A complete lack of commitment and misleading marketing with regards to their theme and support. Three weeks waiting with regards support on SEO and schema markup. A generic email back proving that didnt read ours. We checked their trust pilot reviews… All similar issues no support no feedback… https://ca.trustpilot.com/review/pixelunion.net AVOID!

Good theme, does exactly what we needed it to do. Plenty of options for the product features and home page customisation. Would be nice if all these features also applied to other pages. Support has been really helpful too. Sometime takes a little while to get a response, but once you do they are very helpful.
