The theme stopped working overnight giving the error: fatal error: function auxin_kses doesn’t exist.

I saw there were some negative reviews and just want to give my two cents here. I have built a website with the Phlox theme and elements and I am very happy with it. I never have any issues in my nearly one year of using the plugins or theme. There are never any copatibility issues with other plugins either. Frequent updates and fast, Averta makes sure the theme works with latest Wordpress changes in matter of hours/days! They are an excellent developer that has made an excellent theme!

This issue makes it unusable, and apparently nobody even cares to answer or give information in the issue:

Well, I have used the phlox core plugin before but this time round, it simply breaks my admin and I need to remove the plugin via FTP. I am raising a support ticket and will revise my review when resolved. ***** UPDATE ***** Well, another site and this time it breaks my Theme. (PhLox) config (it simply will not load any theme options). Clearly I need theme options more than a few widgets… I de-activate, theme customisation works… I activate it… the theme breaks. too tired to wait for a solution… Seems to be very buggy!!!
