    This theme is absolutely fabulous.

    Is there any customization that you've installed? Personally, I require themes with a separate link in the sidebar, and an easy-to-read interface that describes each step. For example Logo: [An Input Box For Users To Input Their Own Logo] *An Explanation: This can be any image format you want! Recommended resolutions are 5 x 5, recommend font is comic sans bold* etc. etc.

    Thanks.
    Yes. For example slider has a custom section on dashboard. So you can upload any image.Now logo has not custom area for uploading on dashboard. I will try to add explanation on my functions.

    Thank you. This is definitely something I may use in the future.

    How will I find out when it's finished?

    Minimalist yet simple and clean. The slider though is annoying because it does not have a fixed picture. The website's dimensions change depending on the dimensions of the picture in the slider. Overall not bad. Make it more appealing and unique.

    I agree about the whole slider picture not having a fixed size. I think it would be better if you forced one, because it's hideous when you switch. UGH.

    And definitely let us know the proper size. *Totally stalking this thread*

    I guess you should remove the slide for smaller screens. Great work though, I love how clean your design is :D

    I will share few points which can increase the value of the theme, but its optional for you to consider it or not.

    1) background (use single big image or some texture repeatable image to give some blending of foreground and back ground.)
    2) search function should be on top area of the side, so that people can easily look around for where to search.
    3) Provide some caption option in slider. (people like to write something related to image.)
    4) You can use some graphics for menu buttons, its tooooooooo simple.
    5) font size is too small, try increasing the size.
    6) Provide contact us section in footer as well, like there is about us section.
    7) there is no need to put META (login section) in side bar as well as in footer. Think of a single place and stick to that.
    8) Provide few plugins inbuilt within the theme, which will enhance the user experience. e.g. facebook social plugin for social media need. or twitter feed from particular search term or particular account.
    9) use a bit of graphics in theme, e.g. break post with horizontal designer rule and other things.

    Hope it helps.
