  1. The new theme updated messed up all of my formatting. I am beyond infuriated with your team. I have my final meeting and presentation for this website in a few hours and now I have to try reformat and customize everything back to the way it was.

    What’s worse, is that the changes I have made to the site in Nirvana Settings are not even showing on the live site. Social Media icons not the colour that they are set in the settings. Header height is not 200px like it is set to be. Page titles won’t go away even though they are set to ‘hide’.

    Please fix this ASAP, you’ve ruined by website and I can’t even change it back to how it should be.

  2. If I update the Nirvana child theme, will I have to set it up from scratch or is there a way to migrate the exsisting settings, like colors, text, presentation page…etc.?

  3. what steps do I take to update to the latest Nirvana Child Theme if I made edits to the one I am using, like css in the custom css area and am using presentation page with slider images?
