Other Items on Main Page

Hi. I am trying to use this theme for a small wine website, and generally like what I am seeing. But I am confused by a couple of things. Maybe someone can give me a few thoughts.

  1. I would like to add a FAQ to the front page. This theme does not seem to have a widget to allow that kind of information, either directly (A built in faq widget) or indirectly, like a generic widget where I could enter my own formatted text. Or insert a page.

  2. If I add a third party widget, such as a FAQ widget, it does appear. But it lacks formatting and is aligned to the hard left. This basically makes that option unfunctional.

  3. Is there any way to have more control over the parallax widget? Second graphic - maybe one in the foreground and one in the background - would be nice. So would the ability to format the text.

  4. Shortcodes do not work at all???

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
