Updating Themes

Note that any changes you made to your theme will be lost if you did not
make them through a child theme, which was included in the download.

Do not overwrite your existing child theme. Only update the parent/main theme.

Updating your theme is easy! First you’ll need to download the latest version of your theme from your ThemeForest downloads page.

Once you have the latest version you can upload it one of two ways:

  1. Via FTP – Simply go to your wp-content/themes folder and drop the latest version of the theme in there, overwriting the existing theme.
  2. Via the WP Dashboard – You can upload the themename-theme-only.zip through your WP dashboard. But first, you need to delete the current version of the theme under Appearance > Themes. Don’t worry, your settings will remain intact. Once that is done, navigate to Appearance > Themes and then click on the Install Themes tab and follow the instructions there.
