    This one is so underrated! Thanks for a great design – the screenshot gave me the impression of a simple single column layout but it is really versatile and has so many options. I highly recommend anyone interested check it out on the theme showcase http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/harmonic/ . Love your work!

    I like the theme very much, but it does not show widgets when viewed through a mobile device, which I think is a disadvantage.

    On the theme page it says I can download it for my self-hosted site, but I cannot figure out how to do that. Nothing happens when I click the link.

      Sorry you are having difficulty, this should be working now as I just tested it. If you could please try again and let us know if you continue to have issues.

        Thanks! It does work now! Though I was impatient last night and figured out how to get it from the SVN repository, haha. I’m a dork.

    Looks very interesting. I think it will be very good for showcasing blogs which are largely picture-based.

    This is a really beautiful theme, very inspiring and versatile, as far as the theme utilization goes. It’s so lovely it would be suitable for nearly any “thoughtful” subject.

    This theme looks really cool. I’d like to try it out on my self-hosted site, but the download link for that version isn’t working. The URL just points to the theme page on WordPress.com. I also tried searching the WordPress.org theme directory and its not listed there. Where can I download it from?

    Also the “yours truly” link over to Twitter is malformed. It looks like there is an extra double-quote at the end.

    I was really frustrated to decide a simple but elegant theme for my upcoming blog with focus on content and the picture at the same time. You made it for me really, how far i can customize it. Can you help me or suggest me some forum to seek help for customization as per my requirement.

    Is there any way to change the size of the site logo on the scrolling homepage and center it? Love the theme, thanks!!

    For what its worth, I can make almost exactly what I want by hiding the Title and News Sections and placing an image in the Page section above the background I want, but then I lose two sections, and basically only have the portfolio section left to work with on the homepage.

    Looks really interesting. As I’m pretty new around here, this is the first “New” theme to really catch my eye, and I just may have to give it a try. Thanks in advance for all the hard work that I am sure you put into this.

    I see on the Sticky Post page there is a post that has a tiled mosaic gallery. Is there a way to create tiled mosaic galleries in a wider format?

    Well, I’m trying it out, and though I like it better than what I was using, I don’t think I’m making very good use of all that you included here. It really is a great theme, and I’ll keep at it until I get it. Thanks a lot.

    I’ve been switching themes like my boxers these days (every month or so. lol) ..
    Seriously, I’m in a rut with my layout since I’m kinda all over the place with artistic content.
    A “mujical vidualist who sometimes just paints” or sometimes I get a whim to get some of the semiotic theory out of my system, so I crit.

    But this is looking like a great theme. I’m digin in. Thank You!!! xo

    I use this theme for my blog. I just noticed that once I’ve reached the end of page 2, it won’t let me go through the very end and click “Older Post.” It keeps jumping up a few lines.

    Hi Tammy great theme btw, however is there a way of adjusting or changing the scrolling front page / slide / section layout or position for example:

    Can I place my widget area, or change the position in the slides of my widget area under my project or portfolio section on the front page?
