  1. Hi Richie, thank you for the wonderful theme. I was wondering how I can get the different colours in the primary menu. I have my own menu in the Primary menu, instead of the Categories, and would like each menu option to have a different colour, like in your demo. It is very similar to what I have in my original website, that is one of the reason I chose your theme for my companion blog. But I have not been able to find the piece of code where I could change the colours of each menu item.

    Also, I enabled featured categories in the theme. But when I tried the responsive menu for smartphones, the result was not very clean. So I tried to switch back to the default option, which was to display the latest posts, without any featured category. However, when I removed the featured category, it now displays a blank screen instead of the latest posts. How do I get it to display the latest posts again? I do not want to reset all settings since I made a lot of customizations. Thanks a lot.

    • @menu
      you need to setup custom menu in menus->location->primary. however the color only work for category and page item. not custom link.

      @responsive
      did you enable responsive in customize->general->misc

      @blank screen
      not sure about this, are you using child theme, might be some template need update.
      make sure you use latest posts in wp-admin->settings->reading
