No images from demo
There will be no any image included in the quickstart package. All the images displayed in demo of the template are paid and we dont have any right to distribute these images. So all the images are replaced with placeholder images.
Pro extensions are bundled in only Quickstart package
All the pro extensions used in the templates, are bundled only in the quickstart package. These are not provided separately. If there will be any update in the extensions version, we will release an update for the template with other changes if possible. And if you want to get a licence or regular update for the extensions, you need to purchase licence key from the respective owner of the extensions.
How to create a CSS Stylesheet
If you are playing with CSS, please make sure you are creating a new custom CSS Stylesheet. Because if you are making changes in our files, it will be problematic on the time of template update. When you will install the template update, you will lost all the changes you have made in the CSS Stylesheet. And if you are using your own custom CSS file, then the CSS Stylesheet will not be overwritten.
- Add your own CSS by creating a custom.css file inside the /css folder.

Don't update extensions via Joomla's updater, because some of the extensions are "Pro" versions or "Advanced" versions and if you update them, you will downgrade extension to "free" version, with limited features. The Best example of that is SP Page Builder, "pro" version. If you update "automatically" using Joomla updater, you will downgrade it to "free" version. You probably don't have this license key from the developer.
