  1. Hi,

    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

    Guido Tomei

    • 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…”

  2. Bought this template but why the default home is the second version? I want the 1 version for my blog, how to setting it?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
