I updated WordPress 4.5.2 and Dynamix (version 2.8.x) broke. The main menu dropdowns no longer functioned as well as some of the pages did not display properly.
I then updated to latest DynamiX version, and that was even worse. The style of my site completely changed and pages were not displaying properly.
I had to revert back to older version of WordPress and Dynamix.
Is Dynamix compatible with WordPress 4.5.2? What is the correct update path for latest DynamiX theme.
I just updated WP 4.5.2 and am having similar problems. I found where to update via the Envato toolkit, but when click the ‘update automatically’ I get a message that says I will lose any customizations I have made. What exactly does that mean?

Can you send over your login credentials so we can check on this further?
I checked your WP Dashboard and it shows that you are still using Dynamix 5.0.4 and Visual Composer 4.7.4 which are an outdated versions. Please note that the older versions are not compatible with WP 4.5. Kindly update the Dynamix theme to version 5.3. Once the theme is updated, also update the Visual Composer to version 4.11.2 that came along with theme.
If you have already updated everything, kindly recheck the site if it’s now working.
I updated the theme and everything appears to be fine, but it will not update Visual Composer from 4.7.4. When trying to update it says it is already at the latest version. It is not. Further, VC does not show up in my installed plugins.

Since you already have the Envato plugin installed, please use it to update the site. As long as you did not do any customization directly on the theme files and only kept the customization under ‘Theme Options’, any changes should not be lost.
Another option on updating is to do it manually via FTP. Login to your Themeforest account, download the new version of the theme then upload it to your site via FTP.
Here is the guide: http://themeva.com/docs/dynamix/theme-installation-updating/
Please deactivate and delete Visual Composer. Once done, install the new version from this link: http://carguysandgals.com/wordpress/wp-admin/themes.php?page=install-required-plugins
