  1. Looks pretty. Could it be configured without the splash page, with the most recent post as the home page – with the featured image full frame?

    1. Sure, you can assign a different page (posts and page have same featured image full frame effect) by visiting the Settings -> Reading -> Front Page Displays -> Static Front Page.

  2. Hello, it’s precious! Is it fully responsive? We need a theme that works on mobile devices too. (please say yes, we love it)

  3. You realize this is homepage is unusable on PC with a mouse? Scrolling with the mouse scroller moves about 3 pixels at once.

  4. I love this theme, however I find it a bit annoying that there is a color filter over the photographs (when looking at them in the horizontal scrolling part). Is it possible to remove this filter?

  5. This is gorgeous! Wondering too about the color filter over the images in the scrolling portion of the page. Is there also a way to add a small menu across the top, rather than it being in the hidden dropdown? Considering this for my photography site and have a feeling that many potential clients may not know how to expand the menu.
