    :

    Very nice and scalable theme with lots of features and configuration options. The Support was very good by Marko – who always responded to questions promptly. The only thing we weren’t crazy about is the width of the single post pages. It’s very wide if you do lots of quick hit type blog posts (1-2 paragraphs), and/or social curation. Anyhow… That’s why we just purchased Gridlove by same developer (Meks). The single post width is boxed and seen to be around 600-650px and so it looks great laid out with embedded media (photos, instagram, twitter) that are normally in the 550-700px range. Although it’s not as full featured as Herald or even their new theme, Voice, but it’s aesthetically the cleanest.
