          Thanks for pointing out the bug dear. It has been fixed. If you want we can fix the issue in your blog too. Once again your comment was very appreciated.

  3. Thank you very much for everything. You can offer us a free (and nice) template with some instructions for free. Thanks.

  4. Hello! Is it possible to remove photo slideshow in thumbnails that lead to posts with multiple pictures? For example, if I have a post with several pictures, is it possible to display only the first one in the thumbnail on the main page in stead of a slideshow of the whole gallery? If yes, is it available only in the premium version? Thanks in advance!

    1. OddThemes avatar

      Yes we can do that for you if you purchase our premium version.
