Hi,

I just tried with my Itis theme and everything works… probably you need to try to deactivate and reactivate the theme. Which errors are you getting?

What do you mean? What doesn’t work? When you deactivate the theme you need, in some cases, to reassign the menu locations in Appearance -> Menu, check that.
