Slider and dropping settings

Three problems
1 images in the slider don’t resize. Should they or do I need to install Tinthumb? The slider has also now completely disappeared.
Dropping settings
2 the theme often and randomly drops the menu bar settings. The result is that instead of appearing as submenu items all the pages appear as main menu items, a very untidy three lines. Resetting is easy though as the backend structure is intact. All I have to do is save and everything reverts back to where it was.
Similarly whenever I go into the homepage settings and come out it drops the text in the “Your Network intro header text” box.
3 Is there any way to remove the Your Network sub intro post text area. When it doesn’t have any text in it looks messy and redundant.

    I have no idea but the images I have inserted into my web site using this theme are flawless to this day from the day I created it in (March 2012)

    I do not understand the rest of this issue, please clarify.

    I have never had this issue happen, are you using a caching plugin by any chance?

    On my site I do not have any sub pages defined so what is the URL to you site so that I can check this out first hand?

    Yes there is if you remove the coding for it - but before we do that are you sure that you will never use it?

    Please advise on all of the above.

    Cheers, Joe
