      Hi Sami. Usually, these errors are related to your server configuration. Contact your webhosting support for more details.Thanks!

    Very nice project

  • David

    Hi there. Great template! Really easy to use as described. I’ve got the countdown to work, but having problems with the subscribe form and the contact form. I’ve entered in the e-mail address in which e-mails are to be forwarded but no luck. If i press submit nothing happens, the logo appears showing the swirling circle but that’s it.

    Any ideas?

  • Lorena


    It is very nice, I liked it. Please, can anyone tell me how I can delete the space there is before the logo. I mean, I want the logo to be all the way up the page. It must be in style file but…where exactly?

    • bicou

      in #wrapper

      padding: 100px 0;

      padding: 20px 0;
      for exemple

  • Christian

    Great template!

    How would I make the phone number in the Contact form optional? Right now it’s required, and that isn’t necessary.


  • Dyzk

    Pretty cooming soon template. have wordpress theme version for this template?

    • Madalin Tudose

      The wp version is unavailable, unfortunately. But thanks for the tip :)

  • Dilip

    Hi, am new to javascript & css i wanted to set the time like it will be opened by may1. I’ve tried a lot but i could not get it . could send me the code and as well as where to paste it.
    Thanking you,

    • David

      In the folder structure you should see a folder called, “js”. Open “custom.js”, see line 4:

      var austDay = new Date(“January 10, 2013 00:00:00”);

      edit the date and time as desired.

  • Stephen

    I need help with the same thing!

    • Madalin Tudose

      @Stephen and @Martynas, the mail and subscribe forms work on PHP5. So please consider to check your server configurations to see if is using PHP5.

  • Stephen

    Thank You

    And,thanks for gifting it.

  • Terri

    It looks great but I tried to use this and got an error in wordpress:

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    • Madalin Tudose

      Hi and thanks for downloading my template. The template is not a wordpress theme, is a HTML template, therefore it can`t be used on a an installed wp version.

      Just download the template and upload it on your server as it is.

      Let me know if works!

  • Rocky

    Lovely Template! Pretty easy to use too!!

    • Madalin Tudose

      Thanks man!
