Found a bug in the theme? Or having problems trying to set something up like in the demo?

I have set up an exclusive ticket system at http://support.cubellthemes.com where confirmed buyers will be able to leave tickets to make suggestions, report bugs and problems with the theme. You will be able to do this for as long as the theme is being sold on Themeforest.

For all theme customizations (i.e. add or change the theme’s code to make it do something it doesn’t do or add specific functionality) you will need to hire a developer to help you out. It is recommended to look for one on http://studio.envato.com as that site is run by the same people who run Themeforest.

Suggestions for future updates?

Please let me know of any features that may be missing, I will be looking to add more features in future updates, and hearing from users directly will help me decide which ones to add.

Images Used In Demo

All the images used on the demo website are only for demonstration and licenses to use them were purchased on DepositPhotos.com and the copyrights belong to the creators of the images. None of these images are included with the theme nor are they available to import with the dummy XML file.
