    Despite my informing appthemes that the theme might be broken they brushed that aside and the theme was bought in April 2019.

    • Hi Henri,

      Can you share the support thread via my contact form, you created in AppThemes? I am curios to know myself.

      Also do you have the latest version of JobRoller theme installed and the latest WordPress version running in your site? Have you done a plugin conflict test? How much memory do you have allocated to your site by your host?

      Thank you
