Q: Do you offer theme updates and bug fixes?
A: VIVAshop comes with 6 months of unlimited access to theme updates (new theme versions) and guaranteed bug fixes for the latest VIVAshop theme version. Please note that theme updates (new theme versions) may include additional design/features created for VIVAshop, bug fixes and/or improvements, as well as compatibility with newly released versions of CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor. Once a new theme update/version is released, you'll find the updated new version under your “Downloads” section of your account. Please note that we are not responsible for fixing any bugs due to theme misconfiguration or installation, wrong installations, wrong versions (not compatible with your installed VIVAshop version), server requirements not being met, conflicts with third party addons or third party customization. Also, fixing bugs is done only for the latest VIVAshop version (as bugs found in older theme versions might have already been fixed in the latest theme version). Any bug reports may be sent at any time here.
Q: A new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version was released. When should I upgrade to the new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version?
A: Please note that whenever CS-Cart releases a new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version, it means that the CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor code has been changed. That is why, right after a new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version is released, we always start the process of updating the theme in order to make it fully compatible with the new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version. So, whenever you make a CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor update on your server, you also need to update to the new VIVAshop theme version compatible with the new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version.
However, before you update your CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor software you need to wait for us to release the new theme version compatible with the new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version. After we release the new theme version, you simply need to go ahead and update both CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor (firstly) and then the VIVAshop theme.
Therefore, you should never upgrade your CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor software before we release a new theme updated version compatible with that CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version. Making a theme compatible with a new version of CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor cannot possibly be done right away, but it takes more or less time depending on the CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor core changes.
To follow the theme version history at any time you simply need to access the VIVAshop Ultimate theme presentation page or VIVAshop Multi-Vendor theme presentation page and click on the COMPATIBILITY or CHANGELOG tab. Here you may find the theme CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version compatibility.
When the new theme version (compatible with the new CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor version) is released, you can download it form the “Downloads” area of your account. Then you firstly update your CS-Cart/Multi-Vendor software to the latest version, and afterwards follow the corresponding theme update section from the theme documentation guide that you'll find here here , in order to update the theme to the new version .
