    Hi there! I also wanted to add my sentiment about loving this template!

    I have three inquiries:

    1. I am looking to keep the featured article scroller at the top of my homepage, but want to remove the horizontal list of featured posts at the bottom of the homepage above the footer.

    Is there any way to remove this list of posts? It’s a bit redundant for my site’s purpose.

    2. If I decide to do the opposite of what I asked in Question 1, is there a way to remove the featured article scroller at the top and keep the featured posts listing at the bottom above the footer?

    3. Finally, when adding multiple footer widgets, it seems to add them on top of one another instead of side by side as in the original Natural template. So now, my theme looks like it is displaying two or three different footers one on top of the other.

    Is there any way to get the widgets (like social connect icons) in the same footer area as the WordPress icon, as in the original template layout? (I think I deleted the original social sharing icons that existed. So that might be what messed up my layout.)

    Thank you so much, I really appreciate your help!

    The blog I need help with is: qccontent.wordpress.com

    Hi there!

    Let’s review:

    1) You can hide these with CSS if leaving the option for the Home News section in the customizer blank isn’t working for you:

    .featured-posts {
        display: none;
    }

    Add this in the CSS section of the customizer as is.

    2) You can hide the slideshow instead with the following CSS:

    .slideshow {
        display: none;
    }

    3) To get the social icons to display in the footer, you’ll need to use the Social Menu option. Otherwise, the widgets you add will display one next to the other up to four wide in the widget area of the footer.

    To setup the social menu follow these steps:

    1) Create new menu (Customize > Menus > add New)
    2) Add Custom Links to your social sites: For example,

    Facebook:
    Custom Link: http://facebook.com/yourcustomlink
    Link Text: Facebook

    The icons display based on the URL added.

    3) Assign this menu to the Social Menu location by checking the box for this at the bottom of your new menu.

    If you run into any problems, just let me know.

    Thanks!
