Solution #2

You may see the 404 error on the Home template on opening the theme if the Default menu item in joomla returns 404 error. For example, this may happen is the menu item uses a single article which was removed as menu source.

Problems with third-party modules/plug-ins

In some cases the third-party module stylesheet conflicts with the theme stylesheet. It may break the general look on the page or affect module functionality. Below are a few known issues with different CMS modules and custom CSS workarounds that should help in solving issues.

All custom CSS workarounds should be added to Themler Settings >> Additional CSS.

Revolution Slider

#rev_slider_1_1 li{
    position:absolute;
}

Custom Filter module (VirtueMart)

.cf_filtering_slider_gutter
{width:auto !important;
}

.form-horizontal input {
display: inline-block !important;
}

K2 Images are not visible

The images are not visible because K2 uses class modal. This class is reserved by bootstrap for Modals feature.

To fix the issue please use the following css fix:

span.itemImage a.modal {
    display: initial !important;
    position: initial !important;
}
