We appreciate your patience and very sorry to hear about the troubles with your server, I believe that you did not get the chance to update Circle Flip since you purchased it, the theme options issue you are referring to have been resolved in a previous update, and you would be happy to hear that V 1.1 is now available and features one click demo installation which makes life much easier and other cool features too.
May I suggest you download the updated Circle Flip from http://themeforest.net/item/circle-flip-responsive-multipurpose-theme/8107961 and know that we are here to help so don’t hesitate to contact us more.
