    This is a really nice, clean and professional looking theme (as are your other ones), thank you!

    I do have a question about how it handles images – crops of the image center are shown depending on the size as set by the Kontrast theme. Is it possible to show the whole image (just scaled down to fit in the confines of the image area of the theme)? Or to at least adjust the focus of the image if that’s not possible?

    Thanks again for a great theme, it seems to work really well across different platforms (especially mobile).

    Is there any way to make this theme print friendly without a plugin?

    When printing, the sidebar will take up more width than the main content and is wasting paper, so I’m trying to remove the sidebar altogether.

    I’ve edited style.css and header and footer is hidden, but the sidebar seems to be part of the main content section. Whatever variation I try seems not to work:

    #sidebar {display:none;}
    #page.sidebar {display:none;}
    #sidebar.s1.dark {display:none;}
    #page.sidebar-content {display:none;}

    Any clues to save the trees would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.
