    Hi Hogan, after I upload your theme, i cannot even login my wordpress admin and i cannot even open my blog as well. The error message as follows:

    Warning: require_once(THEMIFY_DIR/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/u222301201/public_html/wp-content/themes/themify-ultra/theme-functions.php on line 2021

    Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'THEMIFY_DIR/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php' (include_path='.:/opt/php-5.6/pear') in /home/u222301201/public_html/wp-content/themes/themify-ultra/theme-functions.php on line 2021

    How can I get my wordpress admin login again to change or how can i fix it? Looking forward your professional advice.

    thanks in advance
