Have used Lara for over a year now with no issues (never had to open a ticket with support). I wouldn't dream of going back to the default admin template.
Lara is a clean, fast, easy to use template that is quickly updated to support WHMCS version updates when necessary (usually within 24 hours). Enhanced dashboard and intelligent search features, as well as the rest, make this a bargain even at full price.
I wish there was a customer theme version!
Brian, Thank a lot for your nice words .. really appreciated :)
