Flex Mag also comes with dyanamic ad units within the homepage widgets that can accommodate 300px wide ads of any height.

MVP Themes takes pride in its support! If you have any questions related to the setup of Flex Mag that are not covered by the theme documentation or if you run into any bugs with the theme, please submit a ticket at the MVP Themes Support Center.

Unfortunately, MVP Themes cannot perform customization work for each of our customers, so Flex Mag comes “as-is”. Any customization you would like to make to the theme outside of fixing bugs will need to be done by you or a third party.
