            3. I find some bugs:
              1. Almost every icon from free fontawesome icons did't work.
              2. When I scroll to my projects/portfolio when menu overlap portfolio pictures menu stop working.
              3. When I open some publication, after the title have little folder with labels, when I click on this link site goes back to the top of mine page, not in project/portfolio (#main-wrapper) section.
              4. Exactly the same happens when i click on tags or my custom menus or labels.

              1. 1. Every icon will work if you add it based on version 4.7.
                2. Please share screenshot.
                3. Since its a portfolio theme every page looks same.

            6. The Featured Summary section only displays the title. If I add a Featured Post gadget to this section, it displays fine, but the page still erroneously shows the Featured Listings text below the Testimonials section. I've submitted a ticket via email but no response after 5 days.

            7. Hello. I've bought the Folio Template last month and I started to customize my website https://www.cristianweiss.com. But I want to show on "Projetos de destaque" (or the Main section in layout) section only the posts tagged with "Destaques" tag. I've tried modifying the html code (following instructions on Blogger's forum and Stackoverflow) but it didn't work at all. What I have to do? Thanks.

              1. That is blogger's default post widget which shows latest posts, if you want to show certain posts than you have to replace it with label specific recent post widget.

              2. I've done everything but it still doesn't work. For example my Allow Blog Feed was set on full and short option but nothing happens. Also i did everything from your mentioned documentation as excatly as you recommended but my Featured listings aren't working. Why?

              3. If you add atleast one label to every posts
                If your blog is public,
                If your feed is full,
                If you have activated every widget
                If you have used correct shortcodes.

                Then it will definitely work.

              4. Well I've added one label to every post
                My blog i public
                My feed is full
                I've activated all widgets from your documentation
                I've used shortcodes from your documentation like: (span data-type="tysum" data-label="Label1" data-no="4"). Of course with <> brackets.

                And then my featured listing still doesn't work. All of your tips are definitely done.

                Delete
              5. Hope you have replaced the label1 with your blog's label.

              1. Remember one thing you have to keep the post count same in your blog settings and pagination widget.

                There is a limit of 1mb from blogger side, only 1mb of images or text you can show in home page and you are exceeding that limit and that is the reason rest of the post is going on next page, there is not any solution, but you can try page break after 1st paragraph in every post, may be this will help.
