Implementing the Update
If you previously purchased the theme, just find your email receipt from your original purchase. It has a link to download the theme which should always take you to the current version. If you do not have your original receipt you can contact us to request your download link. Then follow these instructions:
- Download the updated theme using the link in your email.
- Back up your website files before proceeding! This plugin helps.
- View the Release Notes to see the list of all updated files.
- Copy over all updated files to your website via FTP, or upload the entire theme folder via Appearance > Themes (only if you have not edited code in your copy of the theme).
If you plan on editing your stylesheet, we recommend adding all of your edits to
_inc/css/custom.css (introduced in version 1.1) so that you can implement our theme updates without losing your edits. Any styles added to this stylesheet will override styles set in
_inc/css/default.css. So if you want to define a style that is already defined in
_inc/css/default.css, simply copy the style into
_inc/css/custom.css and make your edits there.
You should never edit
_inc/css/default.css as we edit this file in virtually every theme update. Use
_inc/css/custom.css, or a child theme (described below).
If you plan on editing a lot of files in the theme, you should strongly consider using a child theme. A child theme allows for extremely easy theme updating as you can safely overwrite all of the parent theme’s files. Read our guide to building a BuddyPress child theme.
