Credit where credit is due, this template is excellent value for money. I am sure I will come across the odd glitch here and there but from what I have seen to press it certainly will be nothing major. The Password protection is just how it should be, a very useful feature when allowing clients to view a shoot.
The template is very well put together, professional in every way and simple to use. Anyone with a reasonable knoweldge of WP will breeze around this without having to use the excellent documentation. I stopped and hesitated about buying this because of the Password Protection, asked the question, saw the update go live and just had to buy it. 5 Stars are certainly deserved, I hope I can put some work into my site (test mode at present http://www.imag3.co.uk) that will do the template justice.
Thank you for your work and excellent support
I am a photojournalist using this theme to create my site and it has been a great experience. The theme is clean and simple which is great for displaying photos.
Additionally, the customer support is tremendous. I had a few issues that were corrected by the support staff or explained to me in a way that was easy to understand and fix.
This theme has tempted me from a themeforest.net visitor to became a purchased member. =) It’s just soooo wonderful and exactly what I want my site to be.
I did read the documentation and all comments, I understand that it needs enormous efforts to response for all customers/users effectively. Some people might only wish to take short-cut for everything without proper fundamental knowledge, this always causes many problems not related outside of your boundary.
But I realized you did responded to almost every comment/question, and trying your best to solve their issue and even willing to modify code individually for them, you are the greatest developer I ever seen =)
Appreciate your work very much. Thank you.
Rated 5 stars for you.
