    Have you tried contacting the theme's developers via http://www.dessign.net/

    they only offer support to those that buy their premium themes ... I got this far alone so I thought somebody here might be able to point me in the right direction...

    You can actually join their club for assistance with their free themes.

    I'm sorry but we do not support commercially supported themes here as it is not our place to deprive theme developers of any income that they may derive from support services. And this would require someone to download the theme, take it apart, locate the source of any problem and find a solution. That's asking perhaps a little too much of a free support forum that is intended to support themes that are distributed on wordpress.org.

    If you cannot manage the work yourself, the only other option is to consider hiring someone to carry out the work for you. That might be slightly cheaper.

    Ok, thanks, i understand - I just thought it might be an easy fix that someone could tell me easily - i am new to wordpress, I thought the forum was for all things wordpress not just those distributed by wordpress. But thanks for you help.
