    I have just installed the Sparkle theme and installed/activated all plugins and then imported all the data, step by step per the Documentation.

    When I get to the set that tells me to go to Settings > Reading and choose BLOG for the posts page and leave the Front page blank. When I had went to do that, I don’t have an option to choose a Blog page.

    Also, my Footer Widget 5 didn’t install. That is the only one. Is there anyway to get that to show up?

    Theme: Sparkle

    I have figured out the Footer Widget 5 issue, but still need help setting up the BLOG for the posts page. I have a deadline for trying to get this site up, if anyone has a solution that would be great. I have even tried to do it as a fresh install, and still I see no BLOG option for setting up my set when I go to Settings->Reading and I had checked under the Pages too, no BLOG page either. Should I pick a different page that would work? Or is there something wrong with my install?

    I am not migrating my site at all, this is a site from scratch. I don’t understand if the documentation says:

    just go to Settings -> Reading. in this case, we choose Blog for posts page and leave Front page blank, save settings and now Blog page will be both Home Page and Posts page. (this step is important for users who using 3rd plugins that work on Main Loop (Posts page and Archive Page) only such as JetPack Infinite scroll.

    Why would it say Blog if there isn’t a Blog page that comes with the theme?

    I want to have my home page look like the demo, what do I set to make it look like that? I understand to read through the documentation, I have done that, but it’s setting the page up. I follow the steps to make it look like the demo, but it doesn’t.

    Also, the top menu bar that has the social icons in the demo, can I change the color of that? I looked at Styling Options/Header and can only change the header overall.

    If you could PLEASE get back to me ASAP it would be greatly appreciated.
