  1. I bought the template and you do not have the option to remove the sidebar, what should I do?

  2. Maria avatar

    Hi, how can I add a background image (jpg) for the whole blog?

  3. Seems to be several problems with the template.
    1. Only 1 label shows per post.
    2. No date visible on the post despite being selected as above.
    3. Instagram token generator page goes to malware so cannot be used.

    Are these resolved in the paid version?
