I recently changed my WordPress theme to Border and am loving it. It’s beautiful and extremely easy to use (even for those of us who are not programmers.) I wasn’t sure if Border would be the right theme for my business since I am not a photographer. In hindsight, it was the right decision.

When I did have an issue upgrading to 1.7 the team was extremely responsive and quickly told me how to solve my issue.

BORDER is a beautiful theme, and it looks amazing on a desktop browser when everything is configured properly, but it scales so poorly on mobile devices that it’s practically unusable on a tablet or phone.

It’s a tedious chore to resize, crop, and re-optimize the composition of photographs to work properly with BORDER. If you’re anything like me, the last thing you want is to spend hours in post with photographs which you processed meticulously for hours and hours already.

In summary, BORDER is a good theme if you have a considerable amount of time to edit photographs and image files to make everything look right—or even if you just want to cater to your desktop users and couldn’t care less about how your website looks on a tablet or mobile device—but if you’re short on time or have a lot of mobile hits on your website, you should probably consider other options.

Hi,

Thank you for taking your time and writing your feedback about our Border theme. I’m happy to hear that you enjoy the overall experience, but let me tell you that there’s something not so clear to me, with regards to how the theme looks on mobile devices. I can guarantee that Border is fully responsive, that can be seen by checking our demo site on a mobile or tablet. Also, not sure if you already know, there are some articles in the theme’s documentation that might help — https://pixelgrade.com/docs/border/

If there’s something I can help you with, don’t hesitate to reach us out by simply opening a support ticket.

Kind regards,
Alin

Very light theme and no bugs founded. Just missing some customisability/variety in blog formats. Great theme overall!

This theme is very difficult to setup properly. The included Page Builder plugin does not work properly on any of our three browsers.

The support documentation does not match this theme. It leads you to menus and options that do not exist.

This theme was marketed as extremely robust, but lacks in every way we have seen.

Hey there,

I’m sorry to hear about the experience you’ve had with our theme. However, please let me state here publicly that Border theme doesn’t come with any Page Builder plugin included so, to be honest, I don’t understand why you’re pretending we did that and it’s not working. There’s no such a plugin included in Border theme and I’m sorry to hear that from you.

We are aware of the outdated PDF files that come with the theme’s archive for documentation and we’re in the process of updating them. However, you can find the full and up to date documentation online, here – https://pixelgrade.com/docs/border.

I’m sorry to say this, but I hope that you will find another theme that will suit your needs better.

Best regards,
Alin

Design, documentation and customizability are not really what I had expected. Just a waste of money for an overpriced template.

  • 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!
