De problemen die ik had bij opstarten Spectra One zijn echt uitstekend opgelost door Support Brainstorm. Echt super. En ook nog heel snelle reacties. Nogmaals heb je WordPress stap over op thema en plugins van Spectra One en je kan een hele mooie site bouwen met ontzettend veel mogelijkheden. Support Brainstorm nogmaals bedankt

Even with my lack of designing chops the free version can get the job done quickly while looking stylish, can recommend. In terms of bloat it's on the lower end as it lets you configure how much of it you want.
