Advanced Navigation Configuration: Users can set up advanced configurations by navigating to Appearance > Customize. Some prominent features from Brooks:
One Page Demo: If you look at the Product Landing demo above, you can see that this is a one page homepages. As its name implies, a one page site has the structure of a single page and readers can learn about everything from A to Z without leaving the site or navigating to other pages. This type of page structure is fit for individual pages, portfolios or some small-sized webs. It’s a simple way to introduce a new product or an approach to your audiences. Visitors can move quickly back and forth different parts of the page like skimming a book or stop at any particular part catching their attention.
One Page Scrolling: One page scrolling is often compared with infinite scrolling. Infinite scrolling, by definition, offers no limits of destination; users can go from this page to others as they wish. But with one page scrolling, literally they can only switch between different parts of that particular page/site. Unless visitors click on buttons linked to other pages, their attention will stay with the subject being discussed on that page only. That’s the best part about one page scrolling where users can make use of to promote their product. You can experience one page scrolling in Presentation or Vertical Slide Portfolio demo.
One Page Menu: One page menu helps readers navigate each particular part of a page by click on the buttons in the menu. This is convenient as audiences can choose where to go and skip unnecessary parts. For pages with long massive content, one page menu can save them a great deal of time finding information. Users can create one page menu by switching to Classic Mode editor then set the menu items for each part of the page.
In case you would like to learn more about configuring one page menu, please refer to our documentation here.
Retina Ready: All the images and graphics of Brook are fully optimized and highly refined to meet the demands of retina display. Sometimes, in order to save the speed, some themes have to lower the quality of images. But Brook managed to preserve both. Take a look around and hover in to enjoy the awesomeness of sharp, high-definition and super vivid visuals. No matter what kind of mobile phones or tablets users are using, Brook’s appearance is always at its best.
Parallax Scrolling: Parallax creates a 3D scrolling effects so that user experience can be as smooth and seamless as possible. Blended with a sleek design and clean shortcodes, Brook uses parallax effects for rows and footers, which makes your site would look like a live presentation rather than just a still web. It’s a perfect choice to raise the curiosity and help your audience better perceive the content.
Child Theme Ready: A child theme can be considered the “heir” of the parent theme. Brook’s child theme contains all similar functions and features as the parent theme. Using child theme, you will be given access to configure any part of the theme’s customization without affecting the parent theme or your site. Even when the updates are released for the parent theme, your site won’t see any influence because the child theme’s files are separate from the parent theme’s.

Congratulations! Nice Work, Good Luck With Sale :grin:
It'd be nice to be able to only import certain pages rather than having to import 120 in one go?
If you don't want to import all pages. Then you can create an another site & copy pages that you need
Is there any chance that the pages could be added as Page Builder templates in a future version? Edit: Opened a support ticket/feature request. :)
Great, we'll take a look and get back to you asap.
Incredible work! Good luck with sales!
Congratulation, Awesome Work !
Great looking theme! Is the PSD from the business demo available by any chance?
In the latest version of Brook, we have included Brook's Sketch file. Please check in your downloaded package.
Great looking theme! Is the PSD files available by any chance? When downloading the latest package, I just got wordpress template files. Could you help? Regards, JMLG
You can get the link in the Important_Readme text file. And that's the Sketch file. If you cannot figure it out, you can provide your email, I'll send the link to your inbox.
Please check your email.
Congratulations for this awesome template.
looks very professonal & creative stuff.... good luck
Could I use the html files without using wordpress?
Hi, We don't have HTML version. This is WordPress theme, and you should use it as the original one.
Hi, I don't understand why there isn't anyone getting back to me? I was emailing your support team and on the 5th of November they seized contact, while in the middle of them helping me. Did they just forget or what is going on? They just didn't feel like helping anymore? I also created a ticket on the 9th of November and NOTHING. I am so dissatisfied and frustrated with your support service you have no idea. I have lost 1 week and a half in publishing the website, I am going on 2 weeks overdue now.
Guys, this is by far the worst support I've ever come across! If I knew this before I bought the theme I wouldn't have bought it. So it's something to consider before buying this theme. The support is non existent & documentation is scarce. I have your theme purchased just from another account, I provided every single detail in the ticket and it's radio silence every day.
Hi ToniLouLou, Sorry for this inconvenience. Could you please send me your ticket ID?
25441... But this is what you guys sent me today. Dear Antonia Kofod, I haven’t heard from you for such a long time. Hope you are doing fine. For now, I’ll close the ticket for the convenience. Whenever you come back and have another question, we are still willing to help base on our ability & the market’s rule. P/S: Don’t forget to check Envato’s Item Support Policy before questioning ;) ------------ ARE YOU GUYS KIDDING ME?
Hi, the theme says it's not high resolution ready and is not widget ready?
Sorry for making you confuse. Our theme is High Resolution & Widget Ready.
Thank you :D
Congratulations, Amazing theme, GLWS :)
Thank you so much!
