Wow.. beautiful theme. I might have to buy it.

Does the template comes with a FULL width page?

Yep – I always include a full width template in my Wordpress files because most users can find a use for them at some point. Thanks for asking!

really nice to see this in Wordpress… job well done again

Thanks Kevin – it took a while to actually fit into my schedule, but I’m really excited about the final product that’s been released :)

THIS is really great. I mentioned it on Header-Footer

I hope you will sell some of these. Great work !!!

greetings, thomas

Wow, so beautiful. Simple and clean, Great work mate ;)

going to buy it :)

Wow, I just woke up and realized this had already been approved (record time Kailoon!). Thanks a TON for the kind comments everyone. A lot of people have been waiting for this Wordpress version, and I’m actually really stoked on the final product – most people have seen the design already, but the backend is actually pretty sweet for users who don’t know HTML – and even more powerful for users who are a little more advanced and able to make customizations beyond what I’ve already offered.

Thanks again everyone!

Also – a note to any early buyers – I highly value any feedback – if you run into any issues or have ideas for an improved experience, just send me an email via my profile page and I’ll be sure to include your thoughts in any updates.

Cheers!

Love your enthusiasm. Checked out your other work too. I’ll try your theme out. You’re on the up and up! Keep the great work coming.

Salute!

I know, I know, it took about 4 months to actually get around to finishing this theme… I’m glad I took the time to do it right though, instead of rushing it. The final theme is pretty darn cool in my opinion. I hope lots of people get some good use out of it. Thanks for dropping a comment :)

Amazing work as always… the theme admin panel and CMS forms that you’ve added are really well done, as is the documentation. I was anticipating more of a struggle as this isn’t your run of the mill wordpress homepage and structure, but the way you’ve organized it made it a breeze to install and setup.

Thanks as always for submitting such a well developed, professional, and easy to use product. I’m looking forward to more of your themes in the future :) Two WP themes just isn’t enough from you.

Finally dude! Easy to setup and install – I know this is par for the course from you, but it’s still worth mentioning. It took me about 30 minutes to follow your instructions and I was off and running with my own customizations. Well done documentation btw, way more detail and images than I think is normal in these instructional documents. As usual, I’m stoked to have another theme from you.

I highly recommend it to anyone else looking for a top notch Wordpress theme that looks as beautiful on the backend as it does on the front.

@alairedesign & charles – thanks for the comments you guys – I’m glad you like the newest theme and that it was easy to setup :) If you happen to run into any questions on using the theme, you know where to find me (email that is).

Wow. Wow. Wow. I’d never seen “dummy content” in a template and I LOVE IT ! If this is not the standard yet, you just set it.

I can’t describe how frustrated I get with the themes I’ve bought. Until now, I’ve always had to hack themes to make them look like the demo. From there I customize.

You know what? I’ve bought themes on here but never left a rating. On one hand, ThemeForest has some great designers producing some great themes. On the other hand, getting them set up can be a royal pain in the butt.

My friend, you get 5 Stars all the way. First theme I’ve bought that truly deserves it.

Thanks for the documentation AND the dummy content. You saved yourself countless hours of stupid user questions by giving it all to us. Now quit trying to get ppl to email you for support and use the momentum of everyone’s compliments to crank out your next great theme!

Thanks,

eyecool

Best. comment. ever. :)

In all honestly, thanks a bunch. This is super kind of you to actually take the time to drop some feedback.

I’ve bought a LOT of themes in the past and have gone through the same headaches that most buyers go through – I’ve taken lessons from my own experiences I’ve done my best to minimize the headaches that go into working with some other dude’s code (which is really what buying a theme is about). Working with a custom theme that uses CMS features is never going to be a 5 minute process, but I’ve done my utmost best to make this process as easy as it can possibly be.

If you run across any ideas to make the process even smoother, just send me an email (I read every single message that I get and I take all feedback seriously).

I’m glad to see the setup is going to smoothly for everyone. Thanks again for the comments!

Great job Brandon! I was actually wondering why you never released it as a Wordpress theme… or any of your other HTML themes, but I understand, you’re a busy guy. ;)

It still looks good, just like the HTML version. Can’t wait to see the rest of your HTML themes being converted into the oh-so-amazing Wordpress.

Thanks for the comment Phoenix – it’s appreciated :)

Yep – I’ve been slowly allocating a little more time each week to ThemeForest stuff, but I still work between 30 and 40 hours a week on actual freelance projects, so there’s usually not too much time left over, and I never want to rush anything into release until I’m 110% that it’s built the best possible way for buyers. I almost released this one 3 weeks ago, but decided to include some extra backend features that extended the functionality quite a bit more than I ever really envisioned for a $30 theme. I’m pretty stoked that I decided to wait and do it properly though.

That said, now that this one is complete, I think the next couple themes should be kicked out pretty fast. Iconic and Eminent both use similar design/dev paradigms, it’s just a matter of re-skinning the framework that I’ve spent countless hours setting up for my line of themes :) I also have 3 other designs in the works that should be out in September… only so much I can do at once though.

Thanks again for the comment!

Oh man, you’re gonna be making quite some cash just off stock templates with these upcoming designs. If the HTML versions sold that well, the Wordpress ones will sell like hot cakes. :D

I’m in the process of taking some time to learn Wordpress, and it’s countless possibilities with custom back-end features, etc, so I’m hoping to start working on WP goodies soon!

Anyway, good luck, man! Don’t overwork yourself, take some time off occasionally and give the rest of the ThemeForest authors a fighting chance on the front page! ;)

OK. I purchased the theme. Can’t wait to play around with it now. From the comments, seems like a lot of satisfied customers.

I’m now officially bankrupt because of ThemeForest

Any chance of throwing up a screenshot of that snazzy admin option panel?

Sure, I’ll piece together a few screen-caps and post it tomorrow morning.

Along with everyone else, Kudos! Really great job on the documentation and admin setup features. Fantastic!

Was wondering one thing, though. Is there anyway to keep the drop-down menus from expanding, then collapsing quickly when you switch from page to page? That can be distracting if you have more than a few items in the drop-downs.

Thanks for a great theme.

That’s just part of the way that particular dropdown script loads. In the next update I’ll be looking into more intelligent ways of hiding this though :) Thanks for the message.

Hey did you notice in the demo that the jquery lightbox feature doesn’t work when you click on an image in the homepage gallery.
