    HI
    I have just downloaded the free version and want to upgrade - however there are a few issues:
    1. I have changed the site title and tagline in Settings - General, yet when I view the page the VANTAGE title has NOT changed to mine. I cannot see anywhere my title and tagline.
    2. In PAGES I created Home page and few others. In preview - I now have TWO HOME pages: one with the slider, and one without. How do I get just ONE HOME page?
    3. I set up the site as static (CMS) - and yet each page shows as a blog.

    These are just the initial issues that I'd like to solve before upgrading. I am engaging a developer to set up my website properly for me, but I still will want to do some work on it myself, and I have never had these sort of basic issues with my current WP website which I set up myself from scratch.

    I would be grateful for your advice ASAP as I need to upgrade the site today for my delevoper to start working on it.

    thanks
    Anna

    furthermore

    1. it says that the theme has many inbuilt widgets. I cannot see them anywhere.
    2. The Page Builder that I can see has only few settings - where do I get the full drag and drop menu?

    thanks

    Ad1. This is pretty simple. You probably have a Vantage logo set up in Themes -- Theme Settings. Your custom page title will appear only if you delete the default logo. There is also a separate setting for your tagline in there.

    Ad2. You don't create a NEW homepage. There is already a Home Page section in Themes-- Homepage - edit this one and set Custom Home Page button to "on".

    Ad.3. There is an option to choose a tape of the template you want for each page - by default it's always a blog template - you can choose a different one - 'Full Width Page' / 'Full width Page with no title' just like in any other theme that uses many page templates. (Page Attributes in the sidebar while creating a new page)

    Page Builder - http://wordpress.org/plugins/siteorigin-panels/ - page builder does not have any additional features than the ones you see in a Page Builder tab while creating a page (as far as I know - been using Vantage for only 3 days now). What you can do is add as many panels as you like, and fill them with widgets / text / html.

    Widgets: Circle Icon, Post Loop, Call to Action, Vantage Headline, Pricebox, Animated Image, Button, Bullet List, Post Content, Self Hosted Video, Testimonial
