Can you please tell me?
I have learned a couple things to look for when choosing a great theme.

1. Level of customization needed to get the design look and functions needed. Will I be able to do it or will I need a developer for things like adding buttons to headers and tweaking the page speed?

2. How well is this theme doing Responsive -meaning how does the reponsive update display on smartphones and tablet? I went to the showcase to find a live website. Found a couple that have switched their themes and then ended up at the forum. I found one:http://www.webmasseo.com/ that has a Mobile menu and a nice mobile look and feel. Some of the others seem like old sites (pre Reponsive update). Can you tell me if WebMasseo's menu was 'custom' or part of Builders code/interface.

3. Page Speed. http://www.webmasseo.com/ came up with a 'C' which is okay, I tested a couple of others and they were slower. This continues to be a common Responsive issue. Have your developers thought about including RESS into the equation?

I'm still evaluating Builder. It's looking promising. I realize that the Responsive aspect has been recently added, but I'd like some testimonials on how it's working for people and maybe some more examples.

Selecting a theme to build sites upon is like a marriage and since I feel like I've been 'married' far more times than I want to be, I'm trying my best to do better this time :)
