Website with Theme Fiend theme is down! How do I get my site back up?

Due to a recent issue with our Amazon AWS web server getting hacked, some of our theme scripts have become inactive. This has resulted in downtime for users of our Big Cartel themes. 

While we work with Amazon to get the server back up, check out some alternative options below to get your site up and running ASAP.

Note: Since no customer data was stored on our AWS account, sensitive data (passwords, etc.) have NOT been effected at all.

Choosing another theme

Many of the themes effected by the website downtime are currently no longer supported by us. However, we'd like to still ensure that your website can still operate regardless. You can proceed with the following options for choosing another theme:

Getting the Capsule theme back up

If you previously purchased and installed the Capsule theme bundle, but your website is down, please reinstall the updated Capsule theme file to your 'Layout' edit page. Then re-enter the license key you received from your in the 'License_Key' field.

Fixing the issue in currently installed theme

If you'd prefer to keep your current Theme Fiend theme installed to your Big Cartel store, you can replace the broken Amazon AWS links (found in your 'Layout' edit page) with links hosted on Themefiend.com.

Host scripts to your own server and replace in theme

If you'd prefer to host all theme related scripts / stylesheets on your own server, or an account on a third-party hosting provider, download the 'Theme Scripts and Stylesheets' zip file.

From there, you can upload the scripts to a different hosting account. To swap our the old code with the code from your hosting account, simply replace the url between the quotation marks after 'src' (or 'href') with your own URL.

For example, you'd replace:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/themefiend/js/flexslider/jquery.fitvid.js"></script>

with:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://mystore.com/jquery.fitvid.js"></script>
