Hi all,

Just wondered if you had any comments on 

Not so much the lack of support complaint. More the fact that the theme 
cannot be child-themed because of an over-use of 
get_stylesheet_directory_uri() instead of get_template_directory_uri() 
in a few places. Seems a pity that a nice theme is "spoilt" by this 
oversight. Given that there is a big push in the support forums to stop 
people editing themes in favour of using custom css plugins or child 
themes, should support for child themes be recommended? If not even
