How to update your theme to the latest version
It’s very simple to update your theme to the latest version! Please be sure to read through this entire FAQ article before updating your theme. There are important notes at the bottom!
DOWNLOADING THE NEW THEME VERSION:
Simply go to your ThemeForest account > Downloads > Re-download the theme you’d like to update.
INSTALLING THE NEW THEME VERSION:
- First, you’ll need to activate another theme.
WP will not allow you to delete a theme that is currently activated.
From Appearance > Themes > Activate any other theme.
- Once you’ve activated another theme, still within Appearance > Themes, click on the Solo Pine theme you’d like to update. In the bottom right corner is a little option to “Delete” the theme.
Go ahead and delete it.
- You can now re-install the newest version of the theme you’re updating.
Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme > Select the theme’s ZIP file > Install Now.
Remember! It’s important to install the theme’s ZIP file, and not the entire theme package. Otherwise you will receive an error message.
Important! By default, WordPress should save your content to your database. This is why your content appears on whatever theme you have activated within your WP Dashboard. However, it’s always a good idea to create a database backup before deleting a theme, just in case.
PLEASE NOTE: If you’ve modified any of the theme files yourself, you’ll need to note these changes in order to re-implement them once you’ve installed the latest version of the theme. The update will replace your previous version’s theme files.
