If you have not activated your theme, then I would recommend you to do it.
There are two ways to update your theme. The easiest way is the Automatic updater which is similar to the standard WordPress way of updating the themes and plugins. The second method requires some more steps and involves the usage of FTP software.
1. Automatic Update:
We are still working on integrating this feature with the license key, so after we finish this feature, we will push it and update the documentation.
2. Manual Update:
Log into your ThemeForest account and navigate to your Downloads tab. Click the Download button to download the ‘Installable WordPress file’. After downloading the files, you need to decide if you want to install the update via FTP or via WordPress. For directions on both methods, please continue reading below.
Update Using FTP:
IMPORTANT NOTE First, backup your theme files and database and then delete your old theme folder. This ensures that any deprecated files are not present which could lead to update issues. Also make sure that the folder is named magazine3.
- Step 1 – Log into your server and then navigate to the wp-content > themes folder and backup your Magazine3 theme folder by saving it to your computer, or you can choose to simply delete it. Your content will not be lost or erased.
- Step 2 – Retrieve the Magazine3.zip file from your new ThemeForest download and extract the file to get the updated theme folder.
- Step 3 – After extracting the updated theme folder, simply drag and drop the new theme folder into wp-content > themes folder location.
