The new theme Benthos came out and supposedly is exchange ready.  Does that mean I don't need to upload and install the exchange plugin as its already in there?  And if so, what about the other exchange type themes?  Is the exchange plugin only for older themes that don't have exchange capability?

Hi gpanek,

Exchange is not already installed in any theme, new or old.  It is an individual plugin, so you'd need to install it yourself.  Benthos is Exchange ready, meaning it has styling, etc., created specifically for Exchange so that it will match your theme.  It does not mean that it is already installed.

Exchange will work in other, older themes, they just won't have that specific styling in place for it.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.
