Lets Blog theme doesn’t come with a child theme included, and sticky sidebars are not available. The RTL writing system, custom, and Typekit fonts are a few missing features. This template doesn’t have support for audio posts, and no post views or review system is available. The theme’s documentation is quite detailed, but lacking information about Shortcode Options generator. As the Theme Goods author has over 45 WordPress themes, the major updates are very rare.
