    i downloaded your theme/demo, but you provide virtually no documentation or you descriptions are inaccurate. for example, Appearance → Customize → Front Page Settings is not existent. theres no way for me to change front page content, i.e. add a text box or a picture. am i missing something?

    Hi Alexei,

    in the current version of WordPress the option is called "Homepage Settings".

    Best,

    Marc, can you tell me why the images with transparent background come out black in front page?

    Hi Alexei,

    in most cases this is because your web hosting provider (in your case I guess the servers are being run by CSHL themselves) doesn't provide a sufficient version of GD. This library is used to generate image sizes. Without such a sophisticated library WordPress' resizing process will loose the transparency of images. Please contact the IT department with this information and they should be able to help. If the site is being hosted on a third party server, please contact their support.

    Best,
    Marc
