16 - Updating the Theme

If you are updating the theme on an existing installation there are some steps which you might need to take for a seamless update experience.

  1. Download latest version of the theme from themeforest.

  2. Delete existing version of "capstone-pro" plugin on you installation.

  3. Upload latest version of the theme to you hosting server.

  4. Go to "Appearance -> Install Plugins" and re-install latest version of the "capstone-pro" version listed there on the screen.

  5. There could be some other release-specific instructions for updating the theme, for this read "Release Notes" section of this documentation.

Please note that updating the theme will override any changes you have made directly in theme files, so it is always better to backup existing version of the theme if you have made any changes and always use child themes to modify the theme.
