Well!! certainly it was not an issue of the theme!. It is a little config. change in the categories configuration you have to do. If you go to: Catalog > Manage Categories > select a Category, under “Custom Design” Tab in “Custom Design” drop-down menu, you have to leave it as”Please select”. So the category will match the theme design. And that’s it!.
For everyone who says things like this: “I’ve wasted 2 days trying to get this to work. So far this these seems very unusable and is not ready for production. If you cannot provide support for this theme, what can we do about a refund?” keep in mind what happened here.
