  • Question: Why didn’t you just update the other directory theme?
  • Answer: Vantage 4.X has been released recently, and although it’s 100 times better than 3.X with a very different and improved set of features but it’s like a new theme was made from scratch so technically it was not possible to update our theme unless it would not support any old installs/websites because of this, we decided to release this one as a new item but at the same time, our old directory theme customers would get this one for free 🙂

The message what comes up is as following: A new version of the Directory is available. after trying to update, it has the same updating issue like new version from classipress.
