Additional Note

This theme is for self-hosted WordPress sites only (wordpress.org). It is not compatible with “wordpress.com” sites. Here are the differences between the two: https://uxbarn.com/go/wordpress-org-vs-wordpress-com/

Most photos in the live preview are not included in the package. However, we have instead created all image placeholders for you so you can quickly apply your own images to the areas.

The bird video in the demo is from http://www.beachfrontbroll.com/ . It is a modified version so the file size is smaller and shorter clip.

Thank You!

Thank you so much for your interests. Your comments and ratings would be much appreciated.
