Key Notes

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 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.

Warning

If you want to recieve automatic updates for this template and don't want your customizations to disappear, we recommend adding new files for your custom code and NOT modifying the existing core files.Create a new file and write all the custom code in that file. So when there are updates, your custom work will stay and you can stay up-to-date with the latest version of the template as well.
