Review of: JustWriteWordPress Theme: Alexandru CosminVersion:1.0.4Price:FreeReviewed by: Raspal SeniRating:3Summary:JustWrite is a nice theme for writers and bloggers. It's also for anyone who wants a free WordPress theme with a clean and uncluttered interface, with big and readable font size, but still having a decent number of customizable options. I'd give it a 4-star rating if the theme supported some of the shortcomings/missing features. I gave it a 3-star rating also because of lack of proper support from the developer, and no response to my queries on the theme support forum (as well as via e-mail) for more than a month. JustWrite is a modern theme and still in its infancy at version 1.04, as of June 2014. I'm hoping it'll have more features and overcome some of the shortcomings in the next version.More Details From the WordPress.org theme details page for JustWrite theme: JustWrite is a theme with clean lines and an open-spaced design … [Read more...] about JustWrite WordPress Theme Review : Free Theme for Writers
