  1. I accidentally imported the Demo too many times and now my navigation bar is duplicated several times. I can't figure out how to delete the extra ones. Is there someone I can talk to for help?

  2. Hi! I'd like to open my travel blog and thinking about your Backpack Traveler Them. The widget icons that come with your theme (globe, books, get inspired, beaches and so on) are included in the package or I need to purchase them? I also like your countries maps. Do I need to edit them or do they come with your theme? Do you have a Taiwan map available? Thank in advance for your reply.
