Hello, for some reason my paypal button isn’t working anymore. And if you want to add anything to your cart, it makes you register with the company I bought this theme from. Do you have any idea on how to fix this? When someone presses the pay button it just stays on the same page and doesn’t do anything. It was working just fine a couple days ago.

Only registered members have an access to a private downloads section and favorites. It works via user ID and the only way to get it is by registration.

No problem!

I was seeing if you could help me out. I have added a user to Shop Manager, and I thought this allowed him to upload new products to the website. When he clicks on NEW and then goes to product it takes him right back to the home page. Here is a screen recording of what happens. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jqtbdo82j9roc71/Screen%20Recording.mov?dl=0 What are we doing wrong?

That video is 0:00 long :) Never mind, I know what’s the “problem”...
Basically, with this theme only Admins have an access to back-end (WP Dashboard) while all other login attempts are knocked off. This is mainly due to security reason.

So, you have two options:
(1) Assign admin privileges to a user
(2) Disable theme control over user privileges. How?
- open “functions.php” for edit and scroll down to line #426
- comment that very line. The following chunk of code should be found there:
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'redirect_dashboard' );
- just add double fwd slash in the front, like so:
// add_action( 'admin_menu', 'redirect_dashboard' );
- save “functions.php” and reupload back to the server (if edited on local machine)

That should be it!
