Thank you guys so much for the help!! I’ve noticed you guys are doing a really nice job at answering everyones questions with as little delay as possible. That’s immensely appreciated!
Just wanna let the author know, and eventually also the potential buyers, that the support and theme is simply awesome! Thank you very much MNKY.
Just want to give a shout out to Mr. MNKY for making such a dope theme. You can’t go wrong with all the features on this site, not to mention amazing support! There is a higher learning curve but that’s because there is so much this theme can do. As Frodo Baggins says, “one theme to rule them all.”
Would just like to say to anyone considering buying this theme – you cannot get better service from anywhere else. These guys are top notch.
As a newbie to the blogging world, I definitely needed some support and frankly, some hand-holding. These guys were amazing with the turnaround in their responses to my requests for assistance – can’t thank them enough! Well, well worth the money.
