The main feature of the theme is it’s beautiful featured article slider, which can be controlled through the themes unique options page. Though the theme is also WordPress 3.0+ ready and comes in 4 colour schemes and custom Google fonts built in. Pagination and advertising are also integrated into the theme which makes this a very versatile theme and a good base for creating your own design.
