I love this theme and their support team they are so kind and fast, is so easy to deploy and to learn how to add or solve doubts with their FAQS.

Header is so much wide making my website look filthy. Their support team never replies to the problem.

👋 — Hi there! Sorry to hear you're running into issues. It looks like you reached out over the weekend. Once our team returned to the office, I can see that Glenn replied to you with a solution to your issue — it looks like the logo you uploaded has extra space included in it. Trim that and/or apply the custom code Glenn provided and you'll be good to go! Let us know if there's anything else :)

Positive - The theme looks nice. If you're a basic user looking for a theme that looks decent, this might work for you. Negative - Theme CSS customization is a pain (poor ID & class structure). The theme has major compatibility issues with Safari. Support is very slow, not very proactive and so far don't seem very competent - answers take days via e-mail and no real solutions provided.

👋 Hi Eve, sorry to hear you're running into frustrations with your CSS customizations. Section IDs are controlled by Shopify — they've changed recently with OS2 and now include unique identifiers for template and section, I'd double check your custom code. We test thoroughly in Safari and have not been able to recreate your issue. If possible, a video would be helpful. Let's keep in touch :)

We have used this theme several times now, and I love the ease of use as well as how beautiful it makes our stores. I have also used the theme e-mail support several times and they are so good at helping me make all the adjustments I request. Overall very pleased with my experience with them in all regards.
