Does it work with subsilver2?
And is it like IM where you had to create special styles for it to work with it?

Current themes... prosilver, subsilver/2... Default is prosilverR (Red highlights)... We currently have about twenty themes in development...
Supports multiple pages as in IM (http...portal.php?page=page_number). I do not have a dedicated page builder as yet but I cold add it.
There are no limitations in respect of block but as with default I don't favour php inside html...
