Studio Theme blogs

Hello

I bought the studio theme yesterday and have set it up but can't find how to deignate the blogs so it pulls my posts.

In wordpress settings I set news "http://dev1.randomlink.com/news" as the blog page AND homepage as the index page "http://dev1.randomlink.com/"

Blogs are NOT being pulled in and the news page is set up the way I want the front page to look. The news categories are not being pulled anywhere.

Also how do I remove the "leave a reply from the pages"?

Thanks a million

PS: this is a GREAT theme and I look forward to customizing it!
