I’m running the Sporty theme. Is there a way to upgrade it? i.e. rather than add a second instance and configure it, can I upgrade the existing theme?
If you purchased the theme from envato market then to get auto update features you can use Envato Market WordPress Plugin. This plugin helps customers receive updates to their premium wordpress Themes & Plugins purchased through Envato Market (ThemeForest & CodeCanyon).
you can download the plugin from here:
Using this Envato Market WordPress Plugin you will see:
- Latest version (need to update version) number
- Details view option for the latest version
otherwise you can download the update version from Envato Market Downloads page and update manually using ftp.
Note: Better to keep a full backup before doing the update.
All you need is to go to Dashboard > Updates and choose your theme, then tap on the Update Themes button. By clicking the Update button you will be able to update your theme.
