Volare: Sidebar options

Volare comes with a powerful and intelligent sidebar that can be used for showcasing your custom content. 

Unlike our own themes, Volare has a separate extension that controls the sidebar. This is included for free within the Volare download file, and must be installed in addition to the Volare theme settings control panel.
