    That is a really nice theme but there is a lot of issue with it. The first and biggest:
    – issues with home page of theme and demo version of theme
    – issues with languages (polish)
    – issues with modul positionning
    – issues also on the seo site of theme
    I’ve started using it, and now it is a little bit to late to change it, but slowly, i’m trying to fix those issues. Long story short – event if it is not perfect theme – thank you.

    display this error message:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDIF in …\wp-content\themes\minimalistiq\page-home.php on line 80

      First you have to import the .xml file, which we provided to you so that it make sure that home page is created. and if you not want to import the file and make pages yourself then make sure that you first make the home page. And after that if you face any further problem then email us at [email protected]. Thanks
