1. Give me a link to the post with problem
2. I would like to include excerpts of the posts in my slider even below the slider (magazine view).
This was made easily in the past version by ticking a box. Can't find that box now.
Bold excerpts wont look good on content width slider, if you want to add them anyway, I will include that option in two days.
3) Where are the rounded corners?
Navigation? They were removed in premium. If you want the old navigation style
follow this tutorial
How to get the old navigation style in SwiftPremium
4) How many pixels are the new slider? Wide and height? The full slider was 960 wide, can't find any size for this one.
Depends on the content width, Width of "content width slider" is 62% of your site width - 20, width of full width slider is equal to site width - 20
width to height ratio is 1.62
5) In the menus, it seems to be impossible to alter the colors away from the normal font colors.
Thats a bug, will take care of it.
6) How do I actually adjust the size of the sidebars? Random seems to be one slightly wider than the other, which was not the case in the last version.
1. Make the nav border and background slightly darker than the header
2. Use widget without padding for twitter widget
3. You forgot to setup footer links.
