VeBailovity 10:52 am VeBailovityyes, i see it’s broken on the home page, let me just check the theme source really quick
VeBailovity 10:58 am VeBailovity@kslovelstzy, I have taken a look at the source and this may be a bug in one of the functions.
VeBailovity 10:59 am VeBailovity@kslovelstzy, can you please make a topic about it here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/tags/network-theme
