Some Limitations

I purchased this theme as it was recommended by Shopify. There are a couple of strange limitations, but in general it works well. First of all, the ombre loading screen you see in the demo, you can't get rid of that. Your website will always have a loading screen. I customized mine to be white so it's not as noticeable. Second, it uses a site icon 512x512 vs. a favicon. May not be a huge deal, but FYI. Finally, it lacks a real footer. Instead it has the copyright section on the bottom and then you have to add a footer to the top of that, just like they show in the theme. Finally, one of the benefits is the Shopify plug-in, you can use a nifty add product button to add your product to posts and pages. Unfortunately, what's added doesn't look aesthetically pleasing. It's better to grab the button code directly from Shopify - kind of defeats the purpose of a Shopify-friendly theme. Also, my Shopify cart didn't work without effort. I had to troubleshoot with Shopify. And not just basic troubleshoot, like they had to send it up to their development team type of troubleshooting. Again, defeats the purpose of buying a Shopify ready theme IMO. What I like: I like the typography that is preloaded, but mostly I like that it's easy to use. I've used a lot of Wordpress themes and some of them are overly complicated. This one is very simple. I also like the fullscreen option and built-in responsiveness.
