Automatic theme update:
- Make a website backup. We suggest All In One Migration plugin, or you can do a manual backup.
- Download your .po and .mo translation files from the /languages theme subfolder, if any is used
- Be sure to have the Envato Market plugin installed
- Create your API key
- Click on Envato Market on the left column
- Once you add the API key in the settings page, you can update your theme from the main Envato Market page
- If you are using the CHILD theme, DO NOT activate Firwl after the update, as it will switch to the parent theme activation.
- Be sure to update all the required plugins (go in Theme Dashboard > Plugins)
- The child theme doesn’t need to be updated. More info
IMPORTANT: After updating the theme remember to update all the required plugins. If you don’t, some parts of your website won’t work properly.
Manual Update (FTP):
You can download new updates from Themeforest.net/downloads for as long as the product is maintained
A full file and database backup is recommended before updating.
No pages or site contents are deleted when updating themes or plugins.
If you used the child theme, just replace the main theme file and leave the child theme intact.
1. Unzip the theme folder on your local computer (for example on the desktop)
2. Backup your old theme version located in wp-content/themes/firwl
3. Upload the theme via FTP replacing the old theme folder in wp-content/themes
4. Update the plugins
