Updating Your Theme

You can update the theme by replacing the old theme folder. First, go to your theme directory then delete the theme folder and paste the new version of the theme.

The first thing you need to do is connect to your website using an FTP client. Go to and/wp-content/themes/ download your theme folder to your computer.

Download your existing WordPress theme

Now download the latest version of the theme. Locate theme’s zip file on your computer and extract it.

You should now have both, the new version of the theme and your old customized theme on your computer. If you remember the changes you made to your theme, then simply copy and paste the code snippets from the old theme to the new version.

On the other hand, if you do not remember the changes you made, then you will have to find them first.

Note: We strongly recommend you to customize the theme using our Child theme provided with the main theme. You will find the Child theme within the theme package folder. Here- How to customize the theme using the child theme.
