Helpful Tips

  • We highly recommend to use Child Theme if you need to change the code of the theme. Do not change the codes in the files of the parent theme as all such changes will be lost when the theme is updated. Here’s an easy to follow guide if you don’t know how to create a child theme.
  • Always keep BackUp of your theme before making any changes to the theme.
  • If you get any problem in using the theme, you can do the following things:
    • Deactivate the plugins, sometime plugin conflict may cause issues with the theme. Please deactivate the unused plugins.
    • Replace the latest modified code with the original code.
    • If the issue still pertains, feel free to contact us using our Support Ticket
