  1. Checked out the demo – very cool… few bugs i noticed:

    1) The left/right arrow buttons do not appear on the video post, on either iPad (2) or iPhone (4S)

    2) Menu navigation (drop down in top right) doesn’t appear to work on iPhone (4S)

    1. Thanks for checking it out! #1 might be a bug. We’ll look into and fix if it is. #2 works fine on my iPhone 4S. The tabs turn responsive and combine into one drop-down/click-down navigational item.

      1. re: the iPhone menu – Yeah, i’m seeing it turn responsive and i get the drop down panel (after clicking on ‘menu’)

        but when i click on a category (eg. ‘People’), all i get is a weird ‘flash’ in the safari URL address box (it’s the first few pixels of the blue ‘page loading’ progress bar appearing then disappearing).

        Then nothing…

        The address doesn’t change and the appropriate page doesn’t load.

        Tried clearing cache and rebooting phone, that hasn’t fixed it… if it’s my phone i can’t imagine why!

  2. please ,teach How to make like a demo site.
    1.the most right menu “archives”
     gallery page with featured images,tag drop down,category drop down…
     I try “”, it is error.

    2.”info”,”exif” tab of “Going to the beach”top photo “info”,”exif”

    1. 1. Please read the theme instructions for creating the archive page. You need to create a new page called archive and assign it to the archive page template. 2. Exif data will be extracted automatically if the images you upload have it stored in the file. If yours isn’t showing, then your images likely don’t have it.

  3. New to WP. Purchased this theme. Can’t figure out how to get the main image to look like yours with top alignment and it looks like maybe 5px boarder. I can get the boarder but it won’t let me fill the space with the image even though it is 940×626 like yours.
