I have been working with the developer in his support forums for the last three days. He has been extremely responsive and helpful. His instructions were clear, concise and accurate.
I'm glad that I paid for the pro. Worth every bit.
About the only complaint I have, which I'm not sure is a theme or a WordPress issue, is that one has to go into Appearance to set content for feature areas, slider, etc. For awhile, it was confusing. In ways, it probably makes sense since you only want admins to be able to change those.
Overall, very satisfied.
