Josephine - WordPress Theme For Lifestyle Bloggers

Josephine is a WordPress theme for lifestyle bloggers, but can be used by bloggers of all types. It is powered by the highly flexible Live Composer page builder plugin which gives you the ability to alter the styling almost without any limitations. Everything from header to the footer can be changed without writing a single line of code.


Once you update the theme disable and delete Live Composer plugin. You will then be prompted to install it again ( like when you first installed the theme ) and then the new version will be installed. 

This only needs to be done on version 1.1.1, the automatic dashboard updates for the plugin will be available after that.
