    Is there some trick that I am not aware of to get the Child Themes to work.

    I have downloaded several Child Thems and none of them work. None of them change the Home Page Format.

    I think the child themes are out of date for the new versions of the themes. I guess when the new versions of the themes are stable the child themes will be updated or new ones released.
    Maybe the ones you have will work with 8.3 or before.

    If you’re using 8.4 or higher you may able to download the child theme directly from your admin area by clicking on “Child Themes” located below theme options. Do not know if this option is available for shop theme seeing we are using DT at the moment. If this is available the child themes that is associated with your present theme will appear and you may have to test a few to see which one works for you…HTH

    Mark had stated awhile back that members is not allowed to distribute versions of the theme if I’m correct so you will have to check support or Josh the team member they may able to assist you. What version of the theme are you using at the moment May I ask?

    Regards,

    Only here on PremiumPress do the guys only allow Members to Download a Version that is known to have issues. And give members no way to download previous Stable Versions.

    If you’re using 8.4 you should be able to upgrade to 8.6 from your dashboard – the child themes may able to work with 8.6 seeing it had some fixes for 8.4.

    If you are desperate I could send you 8.1, it seems to work ok and wouldn’t have any qualms going live with it. I can’t advise on child themes as I tend to do my own.
    I appreciate what Errol says about not passing themes but it is poor that you can’t get the latest stable version.

    Just to add if you use 8.1 and you later acquire a copy of 8.3 I’m sure you could update to it manually.
