Update Pro Theme - Latest

You need to have at least version 5.5 of WordPress installed to update your theme using this method.

Please note – clicking “Update Now” for this theme will not work. We currently do not support automatic theme updates. If you do click the “Update Now” button, you will see something like this: “Update Failed: Update package not available”. 

Please note that if you have made modifications directly to your theme files, those edits/changes will be lost if you update the theme to the latest version. Making changes to the code of your theme files is rarely necessary, but if you do need to do this, the best method is through a Child Theme.

The latest version of WordPress includes a built-in way to update themes using a zip file. This is a new feature and the only way to update custom themes in the older versions was to upload the new files via FTP. Users can now easily update a theme by simply uploading them via their admin panel by going to Appearance > Themes > Add New.

Step 1: Theme Update Available

A "theme update available" message would look something like this:

Clicking it will show the details of the new version.

Step 2: Upload New Version

Go to Appearance > Themes and click on "Add New".

That will take you to the Add Themes screen. Now click "Upload Theme".

After that, you will see you a form to upload your theme zip file. Download the latest version of the theme from your lyrathemes.com account or your marketplace account (themeforest.net or mojomarketplace.com). Now select and choose the file here - and click "Install Now".

After the theme file uploads, you should see a message like this:

It gives you the old (current) theme version and the new uploaded theme version. If everything looks good, click "Replace current with uploaded".

That's it! You're all set!
