Spend some time online to look for a new theme to pepp up my old blog. Fell in love with “Hive”. Took a lot of time to think about it and then .. just did it! I managed quite allright. Had one problem, but the support solved it superfast. Seems to have been no biggy for them. Very friendly, too! Made the entire experience even better.
I love the design. This is high quality for sure, worth every cent of it.

Andrei was quick and efficient in solving my issue. I couldn’t figure out why a photo wasn’t showing properly and he was able to fix it and show me how to do the same thing with the rest of the posts.

I am new to WordPress and trying to set up my own blog. Themes from Prixelgrade look really good and their Support team makes a good job 👍 All good so far but I’ll definitely write another review when have more experience with it

I am absolutely delighted and grateful by Pixegrade’s customer service. The response is immediate, and the team has always tried to answer my questions and solve my problem (without giving up until it was in order). In addition to offering great themes, they also offer seamless support.

I bought Hive because it was the best-looking blog I found that was in alignment with my sense of style. I don’t see any downsides. I am able to do with it exactly what I want.
To a friend I would say that Hive incorporates the best retro feel with modern tech capability.

One point of dissatisfaction is I feel limited with how to create title styling. It is complicated to have to use quotes or colons or all caps to effect bold or italics, although, after 200 blog posts, I’m getting the hang of it.

First of all, two thumbs up for your support team ! Reactive, helpful, efficient and competent ! It’s a real pleasure to work with Pixelgrade.

Then, the Hive design is really great and it’s just perfect to be used as a blog !

On the other hand, we would need some more features today to fit our needs. As I’ve also been working with Divi on many other websites for several years now, the lack of freedom in building a page with Hive makes it a second choice to fulfil our needs that go beyond “just blogging”.

Anyway, you make a great job ! 🙂

I bought the product because of the design. I was looking for a theme for copywriters, copywriters, journalists for a very long time. Clean and with the effect on the text. This was the only theme for wordpress I found. My request was answered by Andrei ser quickly, professionally and friendly. I was amazed that Andrei can put himself in the customer’s shoes and offer step-by-step instructions on how to solve the problem. Or support via remote. Excellent! Trustworthy! If I’m looking for a theme again, I’ll look at Pixelgrade first. Best Manuela.

We wanted a product that looked good and that was easy to use. We also needed some help in setting in up. In both cases Pixelgrade was great – super helpful and very response to our questions and requests for help and guidance.

1. The design is great!
2. I could not see any downsides so far.
3. The Pixelgrade support is really unique – the “big players” should learn from you!! I wouldn’t buy from any other provider, even if the themes were only half as cool. 😀
Unconditional recommendation!

WOW! Thanks, Melanie. It’s awesome when we manage to make things like that. We still have to learn, but I’m happy to hear we’re on the right road. 😊

  • What will I need to use this theme?

    You will need your own domain and a web hosting with the current WordPress version installed. To make things easier for you, we recommend the Flywheel hosting company.

  • Can I customize the themes?

    Yes, all of our themes are licensed under GPL (like Word­Press itself), so you can cus­tomize them with no restric­tions. Feel free to adapt it to your own writing or business needs!

  • Do I need to purchase any plugins?

    This theme does not need premium plugins to configure it as showcased in the demo. Some plugins might require premium licenses for advanced features but that’s not a requirement.

  • Does this theme use a page builder?

    You should be able to run any page builder of your choice (Elementor, Divi, Visual Composer or others) with no problem. All this said we didn't use one when creating this theme.

  • Can I use the themes for client work?

    If it’s just one client, sure. If you’re a freelancer or a small agency that wants to create multiple websites for clients, you can pick the Themes Bundle plan and have unlimited access to all of our themes to build as many websites that you want.

  • What is your refund policy?

    Although we don’t think you’ll ever want a refund, our goal is always to be fair and reasonable. The refund policy is not any different: we offer a 14–days no‐risk money back guarantee on all of our themes. No questions asked!
