Please Welcome new, big update for Sterling Theme, packed-up with niche functionalities and blocks, powered by Aheto plugin.
Sterling is fully responsive and designed with high-end research in mind so naturally, it is a theme for mobile-friendly websites and applications, every single feature and page element will look amazing on the screens of tablets and mobile phones. It includes page templates and layouts created specifically to be the responsive visual environment on the market today.
We made the theme compatible with such premium plugins as Contact form 7, Booked, Google Maps, Elementor and Gutenberg.
For more information regarding this product, you can read the extensive theme documentation source. If you meet any issues using this theme our tech support is always happy to help!
All images in Sterling Theme can be used only on the demo version. You will need to upload your own images for your site.
Instead of automatic update from Sterling 2.x, Sterling 3.0 requires manual theme installation and manual content transfer, as Sterling 3.0 is built on a different content editor, that is not yet compatible with WPBakery.
Dear clients, please notice, that all design and functionality from the previous version of Sterling theme were saved. However, with new version you’ll get new design and functionality described in documentation. So, for all our clients that were using Sterling theme before version 2.0.0, please make sure to backup all your files before install new update. For all new clients – just enjoy! baracuda
