            Entron is a new theme and although it is a bit early to comment on it but I would still like to share my thoughts and what I have got after studying the theme. No doubt the theme is a bautiful and well crafted piece, it should come with woo commerce and bb press integration so more and more people will be able to use it. However, the important and beautiful thing is the exceptional support from the team, they are very responsive and respond to all queries in a timely member which is a plus point for those who are going to purchase the theme. Nice Job and good luck with sales. 🙂
