    Thank You so much for this theme! It’s been super easy to work with. I do have a question on how to show or not show the post description on the home page. Is there any way to turn those on or off?
    I appreciate the reply and the awesome theme!

      I do have a suggestion though. Inside the theme, copy the loop.php to loop-index.php and alter the loop-index.php accordingly.

    HI there! Thanks for the lovely theme!
    I am helping a friend install this and there are a few questions I had. Please advise. Thanks in advance. :)
    1) How to display the description next to the site-name (to its right and before the social-net box)?
    2) Is there a way I can control the options for the social-net box? eg how to replace google buzz with youtube on the Zincious Options -> Social Networking tab?
    3) How to add more sponsors than 4?
    Thanks for your help! :)

      1.) You can make changes in CSS at css/layout.css at line 48.
      2.) You can go to includes/administration/options-functions.php. Edit the file accordingly.
      3.) To add additional sponsors, you have to edit two different files: includes/library.php at line 44 and includes/administration/options-functions.php.

    I love this theme! I’m using it at my Family Tree research site. How do I get the featured posts to stop rotating? (Or make them rotate more slowly?)

    Thanks for this great theme!

    • James 07.28.2011 Reply

      To slowdown the rotation speed of the featured posts, do the following:

      Inside the theme folder, go to js folder. Then, open the main.loading.js file. At line 42, you can see the parameters of the slideshow. The speed parameter means the transition speed between slides, and the timeout is the duration of the slide before moving to the next slide. And change the values accordingly.
