First off, great theme!
In terms of the menu, once First and Second menus are set up, can it be be possible to disable them in the header? I'm considering only having the menu in the sidebar, and can set it up using a widget. I don't want to use the Pages widget because my HOME page does not show up there.
On that piece, when I set up wordpress, I followed the instructions from many guides on having 2 HOME pages, and then hiding one of them (in say ABOUT). The problem with that is when I set up the menu, there is quite a bit of even space between HOME and the next page, whereas everything else is even. (Ex. HOME..........BLOG...PAGE2...PAGE3...PAGE4) Would you know how to fix that?
Edit: I was able to set up a menu on the sidebar, by creating a new HOME page. Then it would show up on the PAGES widget.
However, the second issue still exists. Even if I create a custom link for HOME, there still shows that space from HOME to the next item in the menu. How can I make the spacing even for each of the items in the menu?
