1.4 Theme Specific Installations

Popular themes and proper Warranties and Returns for WooCommerce installation!

Warranties and Returns for WooCommerce was tested on following themes and it worked as expected with the default settings. Important thing is that for these premium themes the option Single Warranty Page Display Mode should be set to New - Most Supported in Premium Themes!

  • Atelier
  • Avada
  • BeTheme
  • Bridge
  • Divi
  • Enfold
  • Flatsome
  • Legenda
  • Listify
  • Salient
  • Shopkeeper
  • The7
  • X Theme

If you are using a default template or the one from WooThemes or maybe a really good template then the option Single Warranty Page Display Mode should be set to Old - WooThemes, Basic Themes, as it is better this way of displaying these pages, but it is not widely supported in premium themes!

Further setup the Single Product Page Heading option. This will adjust your Warranty Heading in Single Product Pages! Basically you can make the tile smaller or larger to fit your theme. Usually for default themes the options is H2 and for the prmium themes is H3.
