What a great theme and the service is probably the best I have ever witnessed in relation to programmers. This theme and it’s developers get a five star rating. – Harpak
This theme is a joy to work with! It was designed with great features and comfortable learning curve. If you like the looks, don’t hesitate—just get it. It is easy to customize but many will do just fine with one of the pre-defined color schemes and/or templates. And the author gives better support than any I’ve dealt with so far – really amazing. Don’t worry about it, just get it. You will enjoy this theme. – david_rahrer
Simply the best support you will ever encounter! Even if you know shit about WP like me, still you will manage to develop and customize this template. Many thanks to the team behind this template! So happy with the purchase! – axelsb
