Theme Support

Items on Envato Elements are not supported by their authors or by Envato so you will be unable to get assistance with technical questions, installation, third-party assets or direct guidance.

In order to get personal technical assistance you can purchase the theme separately on Envato Market. Please click on the link to our portfolio on Themeforest where you can find all these themes that are presented on Envato Elements, each of them with 6 months support included. Simply purchase the needed theme and you will be given a licence and purchase code that you can use to contact the support team directly.

Theme Updates

When it is needed, we will release updates to our themes to ensure that they are working as described, protected against major security concerns, or provide discretionary version updates with new functionality. To access these updates, simply download your theme again to get the most up-to-date version.

Here is the link to Envato Elements article where you can find more info on how to download the theme again.


While you will have access to the most up-to-date version of the item at all times, you won’t be notified by email when an update is available to you. We recommend that you periodically check the theme page to see if an update has been released.
