    Love the typography overall and the border style around the headings

    The theme design is good, but the way it builds the homepage is quite unfamiliar with most of the users. It pulls content of 7 pages to display on the homepage. I haven’t seen any theme does that before.

      I actually have just been working on a site that works just like this. It’s a useful approach for a single page site. Keeps the content editing on the backend compartmentalised while showing a uniform front page. I actually use the menu items to derive the page content, it’s an interesting workflow.

      Hmm, Rosa a premium theme does just that as i have used it(that theme is too brilliant). There are many formats used by developers some easy, some hard and others very interesting. I love all.

      I think it would be easier to control some options in the Customizer. Page content can be also used, but not too much. In my theme TheFour I pull only the content of the front page into the Features section. Other sections can be either setup in the customizer or auto generated (like portfolios, blog posts, etc.).

    This is intriguing. I was considering something similar for the front end of my website as a project after the new year, and I’d settled on a “custom menu with walker” scheme to make it happen. I’ll take a look at the underlying code to see how this works, which may give me ideas.

    Nice looking design. I tried out the demo on my Macbook Pro using Firefox and noticed that the theme does not scroll smoothly. Even after the theme is fully loaded, scrolling is chunky.

      Jeff, thanks for the report about scrolling issues in Firefox. Could you let me know what version of FF you’re running, what OS, and whether happens running Firefox with all extensions off or in Safe Mode? We’ll investigate further and see if we can replicate. Thanks.

      Hi Jeff, I just wanted to let you know that we’ve made some changes to Pique that should make scrolling smoother. Thanks again for the report.

    Sigh. I can view the theme in the directory if I’m logged out of wordpress.com, but it tells me I have to log in to use it on my self-hosted blog. When I sign in, no matter what I do (viewing that theme, searching for others, viewing the directory main page, etc.) I get “theme not found” errors.

    Beautiful theme. I guess I’m not meant to use it.

    Hi, Kathryn P.! I like Pique Cafe a lot and am thinking about shifting my WP site to this theme. However, it is not particularly intuitive–as has been pointed out on this thread–and I was wondering if there are more comprehensive instructions somewhere. I’m pretty tech savvy, but do run my own business, and anything that can shrink the learn time for this theme would be very helpful.

    This theme is absolute gorgeous! However, I’m having some problems with the social media icons, that the theme supports. I’m trying to add links/icons to the footer as a secondary menu. Everything is fine with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – the links turn into icons – ,but there seems to be no way to add an email address and have it display as an “envelope icon”. Am I just dumb or is it just not featured?

    Sorry if this isn’t the right place to ask this kind of questions (:

    Hi, wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to add more panels. I’d like to have 10 panels on my site.

    Thanks’

    Does anyone know how to increase the size of the logo? It is barely readable on my site. I have tried to upload larger sizes but they are all displayed in a tiny format. If I compare it to the PIQUE Logo, it is much, much smaller.
