Subscriptions V1 requires liquid code in order to function properly. This ensures that both the subscriptions widget displays on your product pages and that your orders go through the correct (recurringorders.com) checkout.

 Caution

Switching and updating your theme requires a new installation of our Liquid code.

If you feel comfortable with Liquid code, you can complete the installation yourself, or you can use our automatic installer.
