User Feedback

You may only provide a review once you have downloaded the file.



It's a good idea, but unfortunately it doesn't work on the theme I recently purchased and want to use (but does work on other ones).

I am using theme Acme.

Great mod! Looks good, works, easy to set up and customize.

Found some bugs while testing which were fixed in a few hours by the author. Impressed.

So far I definitely recommend this mod.
