Do you support, or offer help with, modifying themes?

Time to read: 1 minute

I do not offer any support for modified themes, or support to modify a theme’s internal code. As an individual I simply do not have the time and resources that this would require. In addition to not being able to help each and every customer with customizations, keeping track of each user’s custom code base would be a nightmare. Especially when it comes to theme updates — if a theme needs an update, then I would need to also create a custom update for each user with a custom theme, as to not overwrite their custom code base with the stock theme update.

When it comes to customizations and modification I strongly discourage users from doing so to any code internally within a theme. You should add any customizations to the custom CSS and javascript panes found in RapidWeaver’ Page Inspector, under the Header tab. These changes are non-destructive to the theme and are not affected during any theme updates that might take place.

I do not support custom code inserted into a theme by yourself or a third-party user. Adding custom code to the contents of a theme, whether it be the main content area, the sidebar, through Stacks, etc to a theme is also included in this category.

Still need help?

If you haven't done so already, be sure to have a look at the product page of the theme or stack for which seeking help. Each product page has tutorial videos that walk you through using that product's options.

The product pages also offer a vast wealth of information in the details section which often answers a lot of users' questions as well.
