    Hi Alex,
    At first thank you for your awesome wp theme. Are there an opportuinity to change the left sidebar background color? I have changed left sidebar bkg color, but it still appears in mobile version of this template. In addition, the tumbnails of posts are unavailable. Could I use my own slider on the main page? Thank you in advance!

    My footer went blank. The background colour was set at default which is light black and I never changed it. I was fixing the widgets on my site and after reloading the page I noticed that the footer colour had changed to white with no write up showing. Only the social media icons were showing. It’s still set to black in Theme Options so I don’t know why it’s acting that way. I even tried to remove the widgets. Same thing. My site is chizivista.com

    Good afternoon! When you insert a video in the post shows video and next the share button.
    When you paste the code in the box video Video URL (Format: Video) in the record shows a video with buttons share. They are shown not to the right. They are shown on the right below the video. Minikartinka not showing on the website-well worth a stub. What am I doing wrong?
    Sorry for my English!

    Hey, thanks for this awesome theme! I’ve got one question tho, I cannot seem to find the data xml file in the theme zip, as you mentioned in the dummy content section of the documentation. Can you perhaps upload this file somewhere? Or, if it is included in the zip and I’m missing it, tell me the directory it’s in? Thanks again, and thanks in advance! Kind regards, Jan
