To update the framework just click “Update Automatically” and in a jiffy, is ready.

The membership is powerful for website developers or bloggers who require different themes to try often, although its price is slightly up compared with other suppliers.

I’d like more than 14 days for the refund in case you wish, but anyway is positive to have it. You’ve 2 full weeks to make all the experiments with your theme.
