2.20 Overview

Required Action: The Below Beat Store text input in the Theme Options panel has moved. Follow the special tutorials below.

New Updates

New Ajax Live Beat Sorting

The beat store playlist now sorts beats live without having to refresh the page.

View it by sorting beats in the beat sort bar on the demo website.

  • When the beat store menu is clicked, beats will sort live.
  • When the search input in the beat sort bar is searched, the beats will sort live.

New License Key System

There is a new license key # for all theme purchases. You will get the license key # in the email you receive.

The license key is how you will receive future theme update notifications, new features, bug fixes, and instant theme updates.

How to Activate Your License

  • You are limited to 1 website per license key.
  • Using your license key on a local host does not count against your 1 license key use.

Reorder Beat Pricing Dropdown

You can now adjust the order of the pricing in the beat sort drop down menu. Read How to Adjust the Price Order.

Additional Changes



  1. Hey,

    You should add a “remove sorting” option! I think that is pretty important.

    Btw, would it be possible to change sorting already by just hovering (and not clicking) over option? That would be ace.

    Another thing: After inserting license in the Theme License field i get this: “cURL error 28: Connection timed out after 10000 milliseconds”. But i guess this is only relevant for future updates, right?

    Otherwise good job!,

  2. Where’s the tutorial to place stuff under the beat store page as the theme options has been removed? You didn’t include the link or tutorial here

    Nice update by the way!
