  1. I just bought Continuum a week ago the theme is a total sham, u cant use any of your own plugins or it deforms the layout, the technical help is shocking too. A man named brian tried to ask me for $50 an hour to fix issues that should be fixed for free as they are his errors, im totally unsatisfied. Dont buy this product if you actually want a working website
