    Sorry to be a bother but I feel criticism is just another form of being helpful.

    This theme recommends the following plugins: Breadcrumb Navxt, Contact Form 7, Font Awesome Shortcodes, Jetpack, Live Composer Page Builder, Widget CSS Classes and Wp Google Maps.

    Font Awesome Shortcodes for WordPress was last updated 2 years ago and only has 7 reviews whereas something like Better Font Awesome has 50,000 plus installs, more reviews and was last update 9 months ago. As a general rule, I don’t use any plugins where the last update date is a year or more. That’s just a flag to us WordPress users that its either been ditched or is likely to have compatibility issues with more current versions of WordPress.

    Would be nice to fix the demo data so there are no broken image or page links. Where the banner should be is a broken chevron with widget_banner_position next to it. Portfolio sample area has no graphics at all. I understand its demo data but when the data looks horribly formatted because of broken links and things missing its actually best to not use it or offer it.

    Quite a bit is not mobile friendly also, such as main banner, some text and graphics and embedded video. However, I am using the demo data.

    The above is noted on a fresh install of WordPress 4.7.3 with no plugins installed and occurs on both the parent and child theme.

    Other than the above – kudos to your theme and I do applaud the flexibility in settings and features as well as premade child theme as that is a bit of a time saver!

    For added comment, with regard to broken graphic links in the demo data, there are 119 broken links.

    Failed to load resource: net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

    Most with this URL, just different graphic names (.jpg and .png):


    The widget_banner_position item, in code, is within the div class=”textwidget”

    img src=”http://demo-data.demo.styledthemes.com/flat-responsive/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/banner_wide.jpg” title=”widget_banner_position”

    After changing the Banner Wide widget, under Widgets of the theme customization settings, THAT is actully mobile friendly.

    img src=”http://www.mywebsite.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/2.jpg” title=”widget_banner_position”

    Establishing a header image under Header Image in the customization settings does not appear to be mobile friendly and is gawdawful large, taking up quite a bit of real estate on mobile.

    I hope these notes are useful to others using this theme.
