  1. Wow! What a wonderful Theme for a Writer. I have set up Mantra for a Bible Study. I am setting up Parabola for my main site. And I have tried several other Themes from other programming sources. All of them are nice enough, but for a simple, easy Theme, this can’t be beat. I have been searching for themes since late March and it’s now the middle of May. Took me that long to find this. But it was worth it. I admit that I have not even tried all the functions and features. But the things that matter most to me are the Menu system and the simplicity. Rosetta and Fluida are complex. Probably good for a storefront. Even Mantra and Parabola took a lot of time to figure out. But this is marvelous. Easy. Clear. And my readers will be able to find everything on the front page. Thanks Cryout. Thanks so very much!
    Rejoice Always

  2. Hi,
    I’ve been using your theme for a year now. Thank you very much for the fabulous design.
    Now I’ve just updated to the new version, but I’m facing some difficulties with Google fonts. Some of the Google fonts that I used properly before updating to the new version are now not working. I tried to use other Google fonts instead, but they too didn’t work. Is there a way to fix it, or to migrate back to the older version?
