WARNING: Because this is a major release, I would suggest you deploy this on a staging site first and make sure everything is running as should before launching it to your live site. And as always, do a full backup of your site files and database prior to updating your theme.
Some of the newly added shortcodes or features may not be in your theme instructions yet but we will be adding them in this week. We will make written tutorials and video tutorials.
All updated 2.1 themes are available for download now. I hope you enjoy your new theme and post any feedbacks here…
