  1. Thanks so much for the visit Grant, Angela and I really love Headway theme and are wowed by all the beautiful creation that our friend and business coach kimgarst has produced with it. 

  2. This is absolutely fantastic – but one question: When will the day come when a slider can offer audio integration? It’s a faff having to upload your audio to YouTube and serve it that way. Much better to have an audio button/player within the slider that plays the mp3 file from the net or SoundCloud or Spreaker or whatever. No slider does this – yet there’s so much audio online!
