Update Theme

When our item has a new version, you will receive an updated email from Envato and visit
You can download our theme again and extract it to see the theme upload package (like when you used the previous version). Please follow the steps below to understand how to update our items from the old version to the new version. It takes only 1 minute to update.
If you have customized the old version (such as hiring a developer to write new features or customizing our theme) so that the updated version cannot carry these codes, you will need to migrate all the custom code by hand.

1. Move the theme configuration

Please follow these steps below to move the theme configuration:
1. Please open the old theme > Click Theme actions > Edit code > Open settings_data.json file > Copy the entire code on this file.
2. You have to open the new theme. Similar to the Step 1, after opening settings_data.json, you will delete all the code here. Then, please paste the code copied from the old theme.
3. All data of the theme configuration updated from old to new version. You can click to Preview option to see the result.

2. Move the translation text

If you are using a different language like French or simple you have to change some English words from default to your so you have to move them from the old theme version to a new theme version. You can do the steps below.
  1. 1.
    Open the old theme version. Click Edit code > Open the Locales folder. Opening the language file you are using. For example, if your store uses French, you need to open the file fr.json.
You need to copy all the data on this file.
2. Open the new theme version. Similar to the Step 1, paste all content here. After all done, your translate language will be auto updated on the new version.
Some notes after updating the theme
Note 1: The updated theme cannot do the previous customizations that you made in the old theme. For example, custom code and built-in apps will not automatically migrate to your new theme. You will have to manually migrate and re-integrate the apps.
Note 2: After you upload the theme, you must press the button “Update on online store” to update the variant color. If you do not press the update button, the variant colors will not show up like the color that you created earlier.
