This is how the Feindura demo looks on my Safari / Mac OS X:
Feindura

I cannot see most of the labels (in Web Inspector there are empty <span></span>).
The interface is too wide and doesn't fit in 1024px.
The header is too tall and I have to scroll down to see anything.

Apart from that, it is a very fast CMS. Merry Christmas!

hi,

that you can see the text is probably an error in retrieving the language of your browser, what language is set as default? If you select a language in the right where the flags are, then your should see text.

the width is made for 1200px, but with 1024 you can see everything besies the right sidebar, which contans only extra information and a not so necessary pages menu. so its also useable with that size.

the header size is probably so large, i have to think about that. but with increasing resolution it also becomes quite small.

thanks for the feedback.
i will try to fix that language detection problem.

Thanks for your response. I am Polish and when I clicked an English flag, the texts appeared. I think it should be fixed though.

You cannot ignore those 16% of users who have 1024x768 screens. I would recommend you to make it shorter, e.g. by using a responsive design, in which the leftmost column (under the logo, see above) would be placed on the right side, making only 2 columns.

The same with the header height - it could be set responsively or using 2 versions - with small and huge icons.

sorry for the late response.

currently i have no plan on adding a different layout, because my time is quite spare.
i will definitely consider it, when i create another major release.
