Hi All,

If an author updates a theme, what’s the best way to update the theme to it’s latest version?

Sorry for asking such a silly question, I’m new to Wordpress.

Mostly, just replace the old files with the new ones!

Hi Wizy, thanks for your quick response. How exactly does one do this? Again, apologies for such a silly question.

If the author provides a .zip file for the theme (NB: not the .zip file you download from themeforest), extract that file and replace the theme’s files on your server with the ones you extracted.

Best thing is to contact the theme’s author, he knows his files and he will be able to help you more than anyone else ;)

Most themes you can just upload the new folder to your wp-content folder. Then just activate that new version on the Themes page.

Hi everyone, I am having trouble updating my theme. Here is what I have done- where have I gone wrong?

1. Downloaded the latest version of my theme 2. Opened the zip file on my computer 3. Uploaded the zip file on the “upload theme” page 4. The upload failed because “the destination folder already exists”

Any tips help! Thanks, Natalie
