How can I add Label on each otcarousel slide?
I bought your Sprinx Blogger Theme, and Iìm using it here: https://alfaambienteconsulting.blogspot.com/
Now I’ve some question about it:
1) how many post I can put on the slider? (there is a max number?)
2) There is a max width of the slider?
3) when I scroll down the page, I would like to have a smaller version of my logo to stay always on top of the page near (and as-is) the menu. It’s possible?
4) Is it possible to personalize the search page? How?
Can you tell me?
(sorry for my terrible english) Best regards
Hi Louis, thank you for the fast answer.
abouth 3): can you show me how and where to work in the code?
abouth 4): simply insert our logo and a small phrase “cerca nel nostro blog…”
I bought this theme and added it on https://www.cocwiz.com but its showing only 3 posts in blog posts. how to fix it?
To solve this, you’ll have to add page break just after first image and some text in your posts. Page break or line breaks can be added like the photo attached in the mail.
Just add this after some text and first photo and all your posts will get displayed.
Tried its not working
I can not change background color this template and I try to change that I reference with your instruction.How I can do it?

hi, i brought the version 1 but i don’t get the top design boxes : the big one and the 4 on the right. Before the feature post.
This has to be the most frustrating template i had to work with. When i upload the premium version, i don’t get the top sliders nor do i get the feature post sliders. Also on the menu how do you get the pages from the sliders. Also how can i make the header title bigger,. Any help will be appreciated.
Is there a way to add more levels to de menu?
i know this theme is super cheap so i’m not mad about it, but the html & css for this theme is pretty messy and made it really hard to dig through and fully customize it. many !important’s…
