Hi updigital media,
The site http://farplane.com/ is a self-hosted WordPress.org blog. The version of the Sight theme they're using is slightly different from ours. For example, our version does not have the grid view.
1. How would I get rid of there themes own social network icons, I have unclicked sharing, nothing has changed
Are you referring to the sharing buttons on this post: http://mrkarlcroft.wordpress.com/2013/01/16/7/ ? If so, you can hide them by: 1) Open that post for Editing; 2) Once on the edit post screen, scroll all the way to the bottom until you see the "Likes and Shares" section. Uncheck the "Show sharing buttons" and "Show likes" boxes; 3) scroll back up and click the blue "Update" button.
To turn off sharing for all new posts and pages, go to Dashboard > Settings > Sharing. Scroll down until you see the "Show buttons on" option. Uncheck all of the boxes where you don't want the sharing buttons to appear.
2. A repeat question but my banner slider slides, and I want it to fade like the demo.
The banner will slide when you click the next/forward arrows. It'll fade automatically to the next slide if you have at least two slides. Again, this behavior differs slightly from the Farplane site.
3. Can I get the BS to appear on all blog related pages?
I'm assuming you mean "Banner Slider"? If so, no, the slider only appears on the front page.
I hope this answers your questions!
