ALERT! Anyone looking for an amazingly functional & modern theme. This is for them! Nice, premium theme with attractive features. We do not know much Html coding & needed a few changes per our requirements. Guille has not only done the requested changes, but he checked other errors(which we didn't notice) and corrected them. Prompt response, excellent work ethic, & extremely helpful.
