18 - 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. Replace existing theme folder on your installation with latest theme version.

  3. Go to "Appearance -> Install Plugins" and see if any plugin requires an update, if so update the plugin(s).

There could be some other release-specific instructions for updating the theme (not applicable to all versions), for this read "Release Notes" section of this documentation. - Upgrading to v1.6.0 - Upgrading to v1.4.0‚Äč

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.
