How to Update the Spark WordPress Theme?
It’s very simple to update the Spark Theme: just override the files with the new ones. If you’ve added custom icons, make sure to re-import them again once you updated.
Here are step-by-step instructions:
- If you added custom icons, make sure that you have a backup of your Icons Collection:
If you don’t have the ZIP file downloaded from IcoMoon anymore, then go to the “Icons” tab in the Theme Options page and click Download Current Icons Font File (this file is to be imported into IcoMoon).
- Download the latest version of Spark from your Downloads page.
- Connect to your site through FTP (see FTP tutorial) and replace all files from the previous version with the new files. Once connected via FTP, the path should be something like:
/spark/folder contains the files to be replaced. You could simply rename this folder to
/spark-old/and upload the new “spark” folder that you would have extracted from the ZIP file downloaded from ThemeForest.
- If you had custom icons, import your Icons Collection:
Go to the “Icons” tab in the Theme Options page and import the ZIP file generated by IcoMoon.
