Awesome Free Theme with Many Extra Features
I really enjoy this theme. The widgets make it easy to customize to your liking. The only complaint was needing to modify the footer.php file to remove a block before the widgets begin because it looked tacky. It is a rare theme with many extra customizations other free themes don’t offer. Kudos to the developer and thank you!
I had an issue, pending from some days. I approached the support team and got it resolved in like 5 minutes. Wow, that’s amazing.
