    Okay, so I just looked at this theme on a test site and this is what it says for setting up the home page:

    Create a new page by going to pages - Add New.
    Then on right side, in page attributes - Template, select Home as the page template and name your page Home(or anything). And publish the page.

    Then go to Settings - Reading - select a static page as frontpage display option. Select Home as Front page option.

    Have you been able to do that?

    Sorry for the delay - busy around here. So yes, that screen for the home page IS where you can set things up to show up there. But first you have to create the home page - as described above. Try going through these steps one by one:

    1. Create a new page by going to pages - Add New.

    2. Then on right side, in page attributes - Template, select Home as the page template and name your page Home(or anything). And publish the page.

    3. Then go to Settings - Reading - select a static page as frontpage display option. Select Home as Front page option.

    Then go back the home page set up screen where you can configure that page.

    For the font color, under Theme Options > Custom find the custom CSS box and add this code:

    .title-box h1 {
        color: #xxxxxx;
    }

    Change the color to what you want. http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colors.asp

    For the menu, you can make a custom menu and then control how those appear. See:
