I've tried to keep as many functions free as I could, but this was a very time-consuming endeavour. Hobbies don't feed me, so I will need to offer some of the functions as a paid service. I hope you understand. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. I welcome you to visit the demo site. If you would like to test theme settings as an administrator, send me a private message and we will agree on how to do this.

Please note that the icons are property of icondock.com and distributed as per a license agreement between the icons author and theme author. Icons may not be replicated, sold or re-distributed.

I am no longer able to provide support to the GPL edition. I am available for paid consultations.

Release Notes:

Dear Elggers,

This code is GPL, you are free to do whatever you want with it. This is my favour to the community, in return I ask you to please consider the amount of time that goes into answering questions. E.g. in total my plugins have some 6000 downloads, if each downloader asks me a question, it takes me 1 minute to read the questions, 5 minutes to look up the code, 4 minutes to give a detailed answer. Now that equals to 60,000 minutes.

Are you ready to donate 1000 hours of your time to answering questions for free? I am NOT.
