      Hi there!

      I’m not sure what’s going on. Can you please submit a support ticket here https://support.reytheme.com/new/ and create a temporary admin account for me? I want to check why exactly it is blank. Thanks! Marius

    I’m getting the same results as above – still new 🙂

    After importing Demo all I get is “blank screen” (white) when I view my webpage. looks like everything is loaded in… but no visibility on front end.

    Thanks for any assistance!!!

    I couldn’t locate anything on the help site… maybe a common trouble shoot page or triage would be helpful.

      Hi James!

      Hmm, odd one. Please post a support request here https://support.reytheme.com/new and create a temporary admin account for me so i can investigate what’s happening. I will try to verify the Ajax responses to see why the blank screen.

      Thank you!
