Important Announcement: Slider Revolution had a good run but we no longer use it as part of the theme's demo for more than a year now. Since Shopkeeper was released and included Slider Revolution, the plugin turned into a bigger piece of software making it difficult for users to work with it or to maintain it on the long run. We've stopped recommending it for a long while now but it is still included in the theme's package to provide old customers with the latest version.
Starting June 01, 2017, the archive will no longer be included in the theme's package. We will continue to provide updates via our support system, so please open up a new support request and ask the support team for it or consider purchasing a license for it that will get you automatic updates and support from the plugin author.
