    Can’t work with avada 5.2.

      Hello Jesse,

      As the article was written 1 year ago, so it works with the recent version of that time. Now Avada has released his major update 5.0 recently so they also update their hooks with development perspective.

      We are sharing you an updated code snippet that works with the recent version now and it works with child theme as well.

      Thanks for updating us related to this article. We will soon publish a new article related to Avada 5.0 Theme options.
      Let us know if you need our further assistance.
