Many thanks for taking the time to answer. Did as you suggest but unfortunately it has not made any difference so looks like I am up sh*t creek without a paddle
I did notice that it stated at the top of the forum that v1.4.2 is not supported but only after I had purchased the theme. When purchasing the theme it did say compatible with v1.4 so I wrongly assumed it would work with all v1.4. versions.
Maybe HelloThemes should point this out before people go ahead and purchase the themes!
