2. The banner appears only if you go to domain/shop and then if you click the categories (on the left in the sidebar) it stays there. If you then click on one of the categories in the main menu the banner goes away – and if you click the menu in the sidebar it also doesn’t appear.
I have the same problem on another xstore installation.
