    Hi, You didn't follow all the steps, you need to create a page then set the page to use the "Homepage" template. Now, navigate to Settings > Reading. In the “Front page displays” option choose “A static page (select below)” and from the Frontpage drop down select the page you’ve just created earlier. Don’t forget to hit the “Save Changes” button.

    Hi there, I am having multiple troubles with the theme. I set up the home page as instructed, but widgets keep disappearing and I cannot figure out how to add a main photo to the homepage with the couple's name above it, as per the demo ("Jason & Rachel"). I suspect a big part of the problem is that I cannot install the ZillaShortcodes plugin. When I try, I get an error message "The plugin does not have a valid header." And further down the page it says: "Unpacking the package… Installing the plugin… Destination folder already exists. /home1/giuliabr/public_html/wp-content/plugins/zilla-shortcodes-2.0/ Plugin install failed." Please assist!!! Thanks, Brian

    Hi, The ZillaShortcodes shouldn't have anything to do with widgets. To fix the ZillaShortcodes issue open /merit/functions.php then find this line:

    'slug'            => 'zillashortcodes',
    
    Then replace it with this:
    'slug'            => 'zilla-shortcodes-2.0',

    I'm running into 2 issues with the theme. 1. I want the static homepage to have an image header, but when I have this all blog posts, galleries etc keep that same image as a header. 2. I don't want any widgets to be on the sidebar for blog posts, but it instead keeps a message where widgets would go saying "There's no widget assigned. You can start assigning widgets to "Sidebar" widget area from the Widgets page."

    Hi, By default WordPress reduce the quality of every images uploaded to the library to improve loading time. If you need to keep the image quality using a plugin such as this one https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-resized-image-quality/ but we don't guarantee it will work 100%.

    This worked great for the slider images, but the thumbnail images for the gallery widget are really blurry because it is using 320 x 200 images but stretching them, to fill 476 x 193.

"The Couple" background image stretches way too large and becomes pixelated. 2. Testimonials slide by themselves and can't be slid back (finger swipe) leaving the user on mobile only able to view the last one.

As for the Events, make sure you've install and acivate Merit plugin and Advanced Custom Field (ACF) plugin and import the XML file as stated in the theme documentation. Not possible by default to have on person instead on two, to make it happened you need to make some custom adjustments to the theme files.
