How do I update theme to a newer version?
To update the theme, just rename the current “showtime” folder on your FTP to let’s say “showtime_old_backup” and then install the new version like you are used to. You won’t lose any of your posts, plugins, freshpanel settings or images you have uploaded outside this folder etc. Images are uploaded to the “uploads” folder which is located outside of “showtime” folder. Only thing you could lose is if you have edited my theme’s php or css files. So make sure you are doing your changes at the bottom of css file and then just copy&paste your code from old version to the new one.
DISCLAIMER : freshface doesn’t take any responsibility if you screw up the updating process somehow (0.07% chance) and lost any of your data. You are on your own. Just saying in case somebody would want me to take responsibility for his or her actions. Tutorials on wordpress.org explains very well how to backup everything.
