This theme really has the makings to be good, but it's lacking several important things.
First of all, it lacks any theme options page.
Secondly, only being able to display widgets in the footer is a major downer. I really don't need a slider to span the entire width, and would to be able to list the latest posts to the right of the slider.
Third, when you click on the page navi at the bottom to get to the older posts, the page setup is the same as the front page with no way of changing it through theme options. I don't need the slider on every page.
Fourth, the single post page looks really nice, but there's a lot of wasted space on the left hand side that could be used for other things.
Overall, this theme has potential. Just not sure if I'm up to making all of the changes need to make it work for my needs.
