Support

MVP Themes takes pride in its support! If you have any questions related to the setup of Top News that are not covered by the theme documentation or if you run into any bugs with the theme, please submit a ticket at the MVP Themes Support Center.

Unfortunately, MVP Themes cannot perform customization work for each of our customers, so Top News comes “as-is”. Any customization you would like to make to the theme outside of fixing bugs will need to be done by you or a third party.
