I just got the theme and I tried to set my own static homepage by going to theme options and Homepage settings. I set it to home but the front page still kept coming up with the blog posts. I even tried importing dummy data which set the homepage to welcome but it is still just coming up with the blog. I have tried opening it in another browser and resetting the cache with no luck.
Also I was wondering if it is possible to make links and descriptions for the slider images in the background of my homepage. Thanks very much.
