I see that Essence is now compatible with Builder. I bought Essence Dark back in July 2012 and I am wondering if it is compatible within Builder or do I have to buy a new Essence Dark version? Thanks for your help.

Hi Mike,

Builder Essence is in fact a new theme, it is not Essence Classic made compatible for Builder. Builder Essence is, as far as design elements are concerned, of course heavily based on the Classic Essence. The Classic Essence theme is still available. Note: if you want to start using the Builder Essence, note that it is not 100% the same theme, as Builder requires you to setup your layouts, menus, widgets etc. and after swapping Essence Classic with Builder Essence you need to setup the site anew.

hope that clarifies,
