Please, before you go for the new WordPress version always check if your themes and plugins have any new versions available. If they do, we highly recommend to update them immediately.
We always issue compatibility updates for our themes and plugins to make sure that WordPress update would go smooth and easy.
If it happens though that you’ve updated WordPress before the theme and now have an error, don’t panic. You have 2 options:
1) Download the latest version of Eva theme from ThemeForest. Log in via FTP and delete the theme (“path-to-wordpress > wp-content > themes > eva”) and it’s plugins (“path-to-wordpress > wp-content > plugins > ...”) on your server. Then upload the new version into “themes” folder and in admin panel install and activate the plugins.
2) Download the latest version of the theme, unzip it, and update the theme files on your server “path-to-wordpress > wp-content > themes > eva”. Then navigate to “eva > framework > admin > vendor > plugins” inside your local theme folder and unzip all the zip archives there. After that upload those new folders into “path-to-wordpress > wp-content > plugins” on your server, replacing the old ones.
You won’t need to do all that if you update your theme before hitting the update button for the new WordPress version. It is relevant not only for just our products, but for any other themes and plugins in the market.
