Frequently Asked Questions

We are now several years past the launch of Kadence Themes. That’s several years of support for both our free and premium themes which has led to a lot of questions. This is is an attempt to start listing the most frequently asked.

The most likely cause is a plugin conflict, try disabling plugins first if the issue is plugin related report it on the support forms and we will look into the issue. Most likely if a plugin is causing a conflict it’s an issue out of our control as there are many badly coded plugins out there.

If you’ve tried disabling all plugins and the issue has not resolved, our next suggestion is to either contact your hosting provider or login and find your php settings. It’s possible that you just need to increase your memory limit or max execution time.

You can change those values using the PHP Configuration File (php.ini):
▪ php_value memory_limit = “128M”;
▪ max_execution_time = 360;
… or by modifying the WordPress PHP files (wp-settings.php):
▪ ini_set(‘memory_limit’, ‘512M’);
▪ ini_set(‘max_execution_time’, 300);
Please note that it doesn’t work with some cheap web hosts. If that is the case talk to your hosting provider.
