How to update theme to latest version? Where I can download latest theme version?

Hello, all our themes update free for our customers. You can always get latest version from Themeforest > You account > Downloads tab.

IMPORTANT: Before updating theme, plugins or WordPress always create full site backup in CPanel or in WordPress (for example with Updraft Backup plugin).

There are several ways to update WordPress theme:

1 Method. Semi Automatically:

  1. Using Easy Theme and Plugin updates plugin (NOTE: if you have any problems with it contact plugin developers, not us).

2 Method . Manually, update only changed files:

  1. Go to your Themeforest account > Downloads tab.
  2. Download "All files and Documentation" full theme ZIP archive, unpack it and open Documentation/release-history.html file with instructions in your browser. This file contain instructions what theme files need to be updated and how to update theme plugins if required.
  3. Go to theme folder name inside unpacked archive from step #2 - this is new theme version files.
  4. Access your server via FTP or SFTP (if you aren’t sure how usually your hosting will have instructions somewhere on their site).
  5. Browse to /wp-content/themes/your-theme-named-folder/ on your FTP.
  6. Re-upload changed theme files with the new ones from step #3 according update instructions from step #2 to your FTP theme folder with replace.

3 Method. Manually, replace all theme files:

  1. Go to your Themeforest account > Downloads tab.
  2. Download "Installable theme" ZIP archive, and unpack it.
  3. Access your server via FTP or SFTP (if you aren’t sure how usually your hosting will have instructions somewhere on their site).
  4. Browse to /wp-content/themes/your-theme-named-folder/ on your FTP.
  5. Delete ALL files from FTP theme folder first and upload ALL files from new theme version folder from step #2.

AFTER you update your theme you must clear all site and browser cache to prevent errors (this should be done when updating ANY theme or plugin).

If you don't want to update theme yourself you can order our update service for $40 (ask support team about this).

With any method you will not lost your site content, theme settings, custom css/js added in theme settings, widgets configuration after update.

Bundled Plugins updates:

You does NOT need to buy any plugins to get updates. We include new plugin versions in theme updates, free for you, you just need to update if from our theme updater (not from plugin auto update feature).

Theme updates may include new plugins versions that you need to update in addition to theme changed files. You will see that you need to update some plugin in Theme Release Notes file included in every theme in FULL theme ZIP archive (All files & documentation), check .txt file in archive to see release notes. Some plugins will have auto update feature (you will see message from theme that you need to update plugins), some require manual plugin updates. All our Wordpress themes have plugins files in /inc/plugins/ directory in theme directory as ZIP files. To update your existing plugin to newer version manually (for example for Visual Composer plugin, that does not allow auto updates from theme) you need to delete old plugin version from Plugins and then install new plugin version from ZIP file.
