Feel Warm & Fuzzy. Donate!


This theme comes pre-loaded with numerous options and a easy to use Admin Panel. There are several options on this theme which other themes are charging for. Even though I am not charging for this theme, please feel free to make a donation if you would like. With that being said, I also plan to release a paid version of this theme in the near future. The paid version will include more options, including a slider with FX effects; and a very robust Admin Panel to administer those options.

I am also considering making it easier to administer the approximately three dozen custom fields that are used on some of the custom template pages with this theme. Adding custom fields to pages are not too terribly difficult. However, it is much more user friendly and minimizes end-user frustration if they do not have to know what each of the custom fields are and know where to add them … and make sure each of them are spelled correctly, with proper use of case and punctuation.

The paid version of this theme will be made available for download on this site, as soon as it is ready for distribution.

Work on the Paid Version of this theme has been put on hold, due to lack of time to work on my own themes.

  1. Nata had this to say about that:

    I just purchased the pro version and when I try to install it into wordpress…. It begins the upload but at 100% it says are you sure you want to do this and then stops… any ideas of how to install it?

    • skyline had this to say about that:

      Nata … I am unsure why I didnt receive an email notification about your comment. So, I apologize for the long delay in responding. The issue is that the size of the ZIP file exceeds the 10MB limit set by WordPress for theme uploads. So, you need to either upload the theme via FTP or via cPanel. Someone who purchased this theme recently sent me an email asking about this very same issue. I hope it was you.

      Best Regards
