I noticed a strange behavior in atahualpa 3.3.3 (I don't know if it is the same in previous versions). If I reset the setting I get 250 queries (statistics in footer) for bfa_ata_ option values. Every setting saved in theme settings reduces the number of queries. The queries, called by are like "SELECT option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'bfa_ata_cat_noindex' LIMIT 1" and they return no values.
These calls are unnecessary and should not be called by the theme scripts.
Best regards, Domen
