We strive to respond within two working days to all support tickets. Our support hours are Monday – Friday, 10am to 5pm EST.
If you don’t hear from us after that time, check your spam folder. If it’s not there, we may not have received your ticket. You can either resubmit your ticket or email us directly at support (at) 17thavenuedesigns.com with the ticket requirements listed below.
When submitting a support ticket, you MUST include the following:

If any of these items are missing, your ticket may not receive a response.
Site Login Credentials
You will be asked to provide your WordPress dashboard login credentials (username and password). Your information is kept safe and secure and will be removed from our system after we have assisted you.
If you’d like, you can create a support account on your site so you don’t have to share your personal login information.
If you found a resolution to your problem before we respond, awesome! We would love it if you could reply to your support ticket confirmation email letting us know your issue is resolved.
We cannot provide for support for any third-party entities. This includes:
- E-Commerce plugins (WooCommerce, Easy Digital Downloads, etc)

Customizations to your theme are not included with theme support. We define “customization” as modifying the appearance or functionality of your theme to something different than what is shown in the theme demo. Some examples would include: changing the fonts, changing the appearance of a certain section, reordering the widgets on the homepage (*unless your theme specifically states that this is possible), modifying padding/margins in different areas, changing the width of the content area or sidebar, customizing the behavior or appearance of a third-party plugin, etc.
General WordPress Questions
We do not provide support for general questions related to WordPress or how WordPress works. Examples would include how to create posts and pages, how to use the block editor, how to set up navigation menus, how to configure your site settings, how to set up SSL, etc. These are basic WordPress features that are not specific to your 17th Avenue theme. For general WordPress training, check out our WordPress Video Library at https://videos.17thavenuedesigns.com. There are also lots of tutorials on our support site, plus tons more on the web. Google is your friend! 🙂
Support is forfeited and voided under these circumstances:
- You customize a theme beyond minor font and color changes
- You make a change to the PHP of the theme that breaks your site
- You remove the 17th Avenue footer credit from your site
- You install the theme on a client website
If you are a designer and install a 17th Avenue theme on your client’s website, you are fully responsible for the theme support for your client. If your client wishes to receive support from 17th Avenue, they may purchase their own theme license.
