    This is one of the best gallery themes I’ve seen in a long time. The backend is packed with custom options and it is pretty easy for even a novice user. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a gallery website.

    Hi Chris,

    I am also interested in knowing if the user will be able to also add their website link along with the submission?

    I am ready to buy the theme as well if this is in place.

    Great theme!
    I am about to purchase but would need to add one extra field to the submit form ( i need a field for url as I want to have a link to the original image url ). How possible or how difficult this might be?
