Version 1.2

1. Install Visual Composer: If you are not prompted to install the visual composer after updating the theme, open the latest version of the theme and you will find the file in the theme’s ‘plugins” folder so you can install it.

2. Update Symple Shortcodes: You will want to update the Symple Shortcodes Premium plugin because it has been fully updated to extend the visual composer so you can use all the shortcodes within the drag/drop content builder. To do so, you can delete the plugin from your site and you should then be prompted to install it. If not, locate it in the theme’s “plugins” folder and install it the normal one.

Important: I made some modifications to the theme options panel to make your admin much faster.
