Thanks again for the great support and for a great product. " "If I could give 100 stars for support and attention to detail I definitely would. I've purchased a good number of Wordpress themes from various developers that look good on Themeforest but after you buy them you find numerous problems, bugs, crazy admin and very very poor support.

Thanks very much to Luke & Muhammad!" "I have to echo sarumbear's post on the previous page (82), I too can highly recomend this theme for it's ease of use and support. Hell I manufacture cupboards for [...]
