Customer Reviewers

A truly epic theme!
I spent the last 6 months building my website focused around news style/magazine but after seeing this… instantly fell in love with it. I’m going to do some pretty crazy hacks to this!
Kudos to you!

Awesome theme + great support! Five starts from me!

I bought it, it’s an awesome theme, so flexible.

Wonderful theme. I purchased a grand total of 4 premium themes, prior to finding this. None of them were perfect.
This is exactly what I wanted. A professional, responsive BuddyPress theme, it’s superb. – tehkseven

Well, I recommend it for every single WordPress-fanatic who wants to work with Buddypress. Installation was easy, setting up the components (sorry, ex Joomla user) was done within minutes and every plugin I tried worked out of the box and that is something that was a pain in the #*@ at other themes. Really great job on this theme, pretty easy to customise by the way. – lastpost

Thanks for the quick service support. I highly recommend this theme. – consultsite

Just want to say I’ve been working with this theme since it’s release and I rate both it and Dan’s support very highly! – FlipFl0p

Easy to customize, makes the job, good documentation, cleverly coded, important options are there, powerful features and good BuddyPress and bbPress integration, a big + for Woocommerce. – ganjou

I was hosting my forum on a custom vbulletin theme and was constantly upgrading and paying $100’s every year just on maintenance – I changed to WordPress/BBPress and chose this Buddy theme – Due to the excellent design, flexibility and support of the theme even with very limited technical knowledge I now have an amazing feature rich site which I maintain myself. – Jon – systemsfortraders.com

I just wanted to say that we tried various themes before deciding on using Buddy, but we’re glad we made the decision as it just looks like a social network. It’s easy to use and other plugins work extremely well with it, including WooCommerce. A proper looking site Buddy - Multi-Purpose WordPress/BuddyPress Theme Thanks you. – Business-Web

This site is perfect for my needs, and looks very good as well. I had a developer make some major customisations without any problem. – troybanarzi

    The creator of this theme does state the theme to be very minimal and he is very accurate. Several issues as well upon initial install of the theme in which I had to create my own zip file of the theme to get it to load up. All in all I could have possibly created this theme myself as well for free.. Not an impressive theme

    Buddy is an easy to use, easy to understand WordPress theme that is fully featured with (almost) everything that a community could need. This theme is definitely a fantastic starting point to get things ‘off the ground’ and I would suggest it over the many themes I have tried prior to it. – Overall the code quality is superb and everything is well noted as to make modifications easier, there’s also a child theme in the download which makes modifications that much easier too. – I haven’t experienced any noticeable bugs or issues by default. – Design is pretty good however there are issues which I noted during extensive use and testing by myself and 20 others. Most notably users struggle to differentiate between blog posts as there’s no visible separation between each. There’s also been comments on the mobile layout where the widgets simply clutter the screen and make the site too hard to use; so it would be nice to see an update fixing these issues if possible. – Documentation is well written and when followed most, if not all questions that I initially had where answered.

    I was just very disappointed in the quality of the package, half the time there were bugs and a few months ago I ended up just using a free theme. Very disappointing, wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

    Good code, I confirm the presence of tags in the articles (except in the previews in the home page). However, the bbpress forum display (while being logged in) has the head of each column overiding each other (but I thing I can modify it myself). Otherwise, it’s all good…

    I picked design quality as the main reason for my rating but really its a combination of that, customer support and flexibility. I am running a fairly plugin heavy site using this theme and it is holding up strong. Support from Ghost is very reliable and friendly. Unlike some other dev houses that seem more like fly-by-nights, I have confidence in Ghostpool. I’ve spent more than double on other themes that were hardly as sophisticated and the support levels were nothing short of insulting. This is a very high quality theme with great support at a very reasonable price. Thank you GP!
