    Thanks for this great theme, I understand there are still some minor bugs to sort out but this theme really delivers in speed!

    The previous theme I used was very heavy on background theme images which made it look nice, but when it comes down to the basics loading speed is probably more important! I had 44% bounces, I’ll let you know how my bounce rate changes over the next month.

    Over the last weeks all of the minor bugs I identified have been fixed by the theme designer, and it works great!

    My google page speed is 89/100 and load time is 2.77 seconds for the frontpage.
    My traffic has increased by more than 100% and I rank in top 10 google searches for several keyword phrases.

    At times when I have had difficulty figuring out how to do something (because my wordpress skills are not so great), the support forum has been great in getting a quick accurate solution.

    Btw, your navigation is flowing down into the second line,

    Reduce the font size or, remove one or two links from the nav.

    Thanks for that Satish. I reduced the navigation menu font so it wasn’t spilling over and also spread the items out so they weren’t so crowded using this custom css

    .nav li {display: inline; padding:0px 0px 0px 8px}
