  1. What’s the video preview shortcode? Where’s the Lazy Load functionality

  2. I use Bootstrap for most of my sites, but I can’t say that I like the cherry framework. Too many functions I need to disable as a developer. Maybe I’m not the target group for this product 🙂

  3. I’m still having a problem with excerpts. they show images and shotcodes… I can’t make it to show only text.

    1. Hey Hugo! Can you provide us the number of template you’re customizing. We’ll definitely help you.
