Appearance / Customize = Blank (Not working)


I have used the shapely theme before (I really like it), for different reasons I had to rebuild my website and after installing the theme and the plugins - the “customize” tabb under “Appearance” does not work…

It is working when I remove the recommended plugin “Companion”… But as you understand - I need the plugin to get the theme up and running.

I do not have any other plugins installed - and the wordpress and the theme is the latest versions.

Please help.

Kind regards,

Is there any fix for the customize menu not working? I couldn’t find a way to rollback to a previous version of illdy (I can do that with various plugins but couldn’t see a way to do that for the theme in general). I’m completely unable to update my site at this point.

Hi, I’m sorry to bother you. I just wanted to know if there is an update to this? I installed the Illdy theme a few days ago and am having the same issue described here. Even after deactivating the companion plugin. Thank you.
