Many thanks

…to syamilmj at Aquagraphite for his dedicated and much appreciated work on his ‘Slightly Modified Options Framework’. I know I’m not alone in the theme-world-community when I say it has been a tremendous benefit for many top themes on ThemeForest. Also, if you have a moment and few extra bucks for a good cause, why not a donate a little to his listed cause at the World Food Programme?
