*Safari users please note – safari automatically will unzip the file you download from Kadence Themes. You need to re-zip that file by simply right clicking on the file and in the popup menu click compress.
*NOTE if you get this error while trying to update:
“The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini”
It means your server is limiting your upload size to less than 8mb. Contact your hosting server and have them increase your php max upload size to 8mb or larger.
