How to Update the theme?

Update theme is a necessity to keep your theme always modernized with new features or improve the functionality of the theme.

Every time there is a new update, we will release it on Theme Forest and will send an email to our customers. Similar to Install theme, you will also follow the same steps to upload the latest theme.

Note: 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.

1. Move the theme configuration

Please follow the steps below to move the theme configuration:

Step 1: Open the old theme. Click Theme actions -> Edit code -> Open settings_data.json file -> Copy the entire code on this file.

Then paste it into the same file of the new theme.

Step 2: Move index.json file. You can do the same as you did with settings_data.json file.

Step 3: You also need to copy the .json files with a green dot in Templates folder. These are changed files and you will paste them to the new theme.

2. Move the translation file

If your store Multilingual Languages and you configured the translation files. You can copy it to the new store, please follow the steps below.

Step 1: Open the old theme version. Click Edit code -> Open the Locales folder. Opening the language file you are using and copy the translation file.

Step 2: Open Edit code -> Locales Folder and then Add a new locale with the language you copied it. You will paste it into the locale file.

Note: If you use EComposer in the theme, after updating the theme you will access the EComposer app again and "Choose a theme to work on". Finally you will access the created section or page and Save the page or Publish it.
