    first of all, i’d like to congratulate you for an awesome template.
    Can the featured content slider have more than 3 slides? if so, how?


    • James 01.25.2011 Reply

      Go to your WordPress Admin Panel then Appearance > Kryptonation Options. Then go to General tab for General Settings. There is a field that can set the number of slides can be displayed called “Featured Category Items Limit”, and change it accordingly.

      In your WordPress administration dashboard, go to Posts > Posts and click the any posts to edit. Look for “Featured Image” at the right column.

    Is there any way I can show categories on the main menu instead of pages? If so, how can I do this?

    Thank you! :)

    I’m new to wordpress and I’m in love with this is truly freemium theme.
    Anyway how I can edit the sidebar widget which contains tabs of Blogroll/Archives/Categories?

    I try to edit the sidebar by putting the available widget and the default widget totally gone. I’m really into the Blogroll/Archives/Categories widget.

    • James 07.28.2011 Reply

      Once you put a widget in the sidebar, the default widgets in the sidebar are gone.

    Hi … I like to change the blue color to header blut to red… how can i do this /// Thank you

    • Randy 08.26.2011 Reply

      Hi ultrasguerrils,
      If you mean the background, the quickest way to do this is to open the “images” folder inside the theme folder. Locate the file named “bg-header.jpg” and replace it with an image of your preference.
      Hope that answers your issue.
