Good Morning,

I know you guys don't support customisation, but I have to present a draft site to my client tomorrow and am desperate to fix a couple issues with the Business Finder theme.

I have extensively customised it by removing large chunks of the header, and now the search facility is acting a bit strange. If you search from the homepage it returns the map on the homepage with no listed results.

I'm begging you to take just a quick look and see if you can spot anything obvious...

I can give you admin access if needed.

Seriously, I'll be forever in your debt if you can offer any small help at all!

This page looks stunning:

This one is a bit of a mess:

Many, many thanks in advance on the off-chance you can offer any shred of advice or help!

The problem occurs because I remove the search bar from the top of the page. I remove this from header.php:

{if $headerType != 'map' || isset($dirSearchNotFound)}

Hi, please don`t remove the searchbar from php code. Just hide it trough css:
#directory-search {display: none !important;}

When I do that the search in the sidebar that I hard coded fails to work.

Essentially, all I wanted to do was put the search box that appears on the map into the sidebar. It's a much better place to have it and would be a HUGE benefit to your theme.

Hi, I am sorry but if you make some modifications please contact third party programmer, because it is not in our best to support modified templates.
Thank you for understanding

OK, thanks for that. I was unaware that everyone who buys a theme from theme forest does not modify it for their own use in some way.

Silly me! That's why all websites using the same theme look identical I suppose.

Your lack of support has been duly noted and will be reflected in the One Star I give you for this product along with a lengthy explanation in the comments section of your wall for this product, exactly why this is the most horrific theme out of 70+ I have purchased. I will also explain how this theme is excruciatingly painful to work with and the support virtually non existent if modified in anway. That's without the horribly poor responsiveness, lack of widget support, navigation options, layout options and more.

For Christ's sake, was it that hard to offer a 'boxed' option? 99% of all decent themes do nowadays. This isn't 1990 any more!

Other theme developers go out of their way to help their customers. I will suggest to all your potential customers to bear this in mind before buying from AIT Themes.

Hi, we are not responsible for problems which appears after hard coding. Hard coded part is not our product.
