      Hi, Full Width, Left Sidebar are only available in the Full Version of the template. You’ll need to purchase the template for that.

    1. OddThemes avatar

      We’re extremely very sorry, you are using our free theme and we’ve given the documentation for our free users but we can’t provide our top notch support to free users. So you need to purchase the template for our support, also we have to check your website/blog for the issue. Thanks

      1. I absolutely think you are right since you have provided all the documentation for reference purposes. Since I have been able to setup everything right by following the documentation I believe others will be able to do the same by following the instruction. I also believe that there might be a little problem with the homepage since I follow the instructions given in the documentation and the slider seems to be working at the homepage

        1. OddThemes avatar

          Okay, you’re using BREAK as a label in the Slider. Just use your own Post label names. You have not used Break label in your posts. I hope this solves your problem.
