    the WPBakery Visual Composer is now asking for a license (that suposed to be included, at least that is what your theme presentation shows in this themeforest sales link).... i have about a month with the theme, I still was working on it on friday and now today is not anymore..... are you going to fix this? your ticket system is not anserwing

    Hi, I also ask you for theme license. You don't look as a buyer of this item. However,for the premium plugins you get with the theme you don’t need a buyer license to use them. Since we have the extended license we give all our clients plugin updates through theme updates. There is only one license per purchase – so only we can use this license to get the updates and then share the update with our clients. Regards

Select the Slider Revolution zip files to be imported from your download package: Overmax-tf / demo-content / Slider Revolution This (Overmax-tf / demo-content / Slider Revolution) isn't in my theme, also, the Slider Revolution plugin refuses to activate.... My home page begins with "Last Week's most read" and the "Highlights" section is missing... I also copied and pasted the code to get the demo home page and I get the same results...

    I have a few pre sales questions. I am looking for a theme for a pure movie review site. Can this be used in that manner? 1. Is it possible to change the star images? (for example is we want to use circles) 2. Can the header be made smaller? 3. Can some of the features be turned off? (ticker, carousels...) 4. Is there an option for the UI that can make the ratings more prominent on the homepage? 5. Can the ratings be brought to the top on the detail page? 6. Can reviews be shown in mega menu with rating? Sorry for all the questions.

    Hi, Thanks for interest in Overmax theme! Some of your requirements can be achieved(2,3) but the others requires theme code modification which is not covered by our item support. Kind regards!
