Is Ocean Extra free?

Ocean Extra is a 100% free WordPress plugin on full power mode and without any limitations on its features.
Some of the additional and premium features are controled through the OceanWP Panel which is an Ocean Extra feature, but there is no premium version of the Ocean Extra plugin itself.

Do I need to get the premium license to import freemium demos?

Some features or content parts have been created using Ocean premium extensions.
Unless you have a premium license, those features or content parts will not be displayed or enabled on your website.

However, you can still import any of the freemium Ocean demos / website templates and recreate those features using any other plugin of your choice.

Do you use third-party premium plugins in your demos?

No. Both freemium and premium Ocean demos / website templates make use only of the free version of third-party plugins.

Where can I get support?

You can post your questions on the plugin support forum or the OceanWP support forum which is mostly used by all our users.
If you have a premium license, you can also submit a customer support ticket.

How do I know it’s safe to update the plugin?

We do our best to test all changes before the official release. However, we will never be able to replicate all website conditions.
No matter what plugins you are running, it’s always recommended to test an update on a staging or test environment.

You can also check Support Notes and User Feedback before updating your plugin.

Where can I report problems or bugs?

You can report problems on this support forum or on GitHub.

Recommend not to use. This is a lot of issue causing theme. Issue with jQuery caused bad written theme code. Do not trust this. Poor support which do not resolve issue, they say it is your mistake and they do not care. Waste of time you do not want.. Theme is really slow and not flexible. Issue with apple devices. Scammers.
