There’s new documentation built in. You can view them online or run locally. To run locally you need to have Jekyll installed, then you can navigate to your theme’s folder in the command line and run jekyll serve to view the documentation locally.


I am now officially offering support. I will reply to any issues you find as promptly as I can and plan on adding Tutorials as time allows.
