  1. Hi there,
    Can you explain what a child theme is? I am doing my own research, but perhaps you may be able to put it in plain language for me?

    When I update my Captiva theme, I am not sure what gets updated? When I finish my 2 websites will the update overwrite what I have on a page or does it leave content as is?

    I do not intend to re-write any of the Captiva theme (most probably becasue I don’t know how), so when I update does the website stay as is?

    Please pardon my ignorance as I am new to WordPress and am teaching myself web design.

    Thank you


    1. Hi Charlie!

      Thanks for your comment! It would be useful alright to elaborate a bit more about child themes – look out for a blog post on the topic in the next couple of days!

  2. Well, it seems like Envato Toolkit does not work for Captiva.
    Here is the message I get after installing and setting up the Toolkit:

    Environment error: Unable to increase maximum execution time. Due to settings on your server, large themes may be unable to update automatically. Please consult your server administrator if this causes issues for you.

    Where can I find the latest versions of Captiva files?

    My version is V1.6.2 and currently it is V1.9.2

    1. Hi there,

      You can download the latest version of Captiva from themeforest once you’re logged in under the account you purchased it with – head over to

      Re: max. execution error – that’s not a bug with the plugin – you need to ask your host to extend your execution timeout to be at least 300 seconds.
