I set up the following thread recently: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/slideshow-not-showing-up-on-homepage#post-73878
I was having problems with the slideshow not appearing on the homepage. I was advised to update all the theme files which I have done.
But now I am having problems with the portfolio appearing on every page and also when I try to add a sidebar it doesn't appear.
I have added test pages but it's not having an effect.
