Thank you. A couple of comments: first, your support is the best I have seen. Repeat customer for sure, in the future.
Second, this is not a complaint, just a comment. Any theme marketed as a "Magazine" format needs to have a built-in capability to reorder posts, as the order of the posts affects the appearance of the site as determined by the sliders and the top-most previews on the Mainpage.
While a BLOG template is date-based, a MAGAZINE template has needs that make it layout-based. That flexibility is lacking in Newscast, though you may have advanced capabilities in more recent magazine templates. I don't know, have not spent the time looking, as I had settled on use of Newscast.
For page layout within Newscast, I have found that by using a full-width template and dropping in HTML code created in a HTML page layout program (I use Adobe GoLive), the functionality approaches that of a dedicated HTML page editing program.
But the sticking point right now is the lack of an easy way of reordering posts, which has a direct effect on appearance of the page.
Again thank you.
