Important Apex Update!

Apex Responsive WordPress Theme

Due to a recent conflict with another theme called Apex that resides on the wordpress.org repository we where forced to rename the directory of our Apex theme. Previously our directory was simply name "apex". In order to prevent update conflicts with the other theme we have renamed our theme's directory to "digitalscience-apex".

Unfortunately, there is not a way to automatically update your theme to this new directory. You will need to re-download your Apex theme from your downloads page on ThemeForest and go through the normal install/activation process.

You will not have to worry about losing any data or settings for your site. But, you will need to navigate to your Dashboard > Appearance > Menus page and re-check (and save) the Primary Menu (Theme Location) at the bottom of your Main Menu. This is required any time you switch a theme or activate a child theme.

Child Themes

If you are currently using a child theme with Apex you will need to complete one additional step. Using an FTP editor, navigate to your child theme's directory and open/edit the style.css file. You will see a line near the top of the file that looks like:

Template: apex

This tells the WordPress which "parent" theme to use with the child theme. Since we have now modified the directory name of Apex, you will have to modify this line to:

Template: digitalscience-apex

Make sure to save this file. Additionally (if you see issues on your front-end after adjusting this) you may need to go into your Dashboard > Appearance > Themes page and activate the main Apex theme briefly. Then you should be able to re-activate your custom Child theme.

Sorry for this unexpected inconvenience. Once you have your Apex theme updated to the new directory structure we should no longer run into these theme update conflicts.

Thanks again for your purchase!
