You can update your theme via FTP or via WordPress admin panel. However, make sure that you have already downloaded the new updated theme files from Themeforest first.

1: Some things you need to prepare before update.

Backup Your Current Theme – It’s always a good idea to keep a backup of your current theme. Log on to your server or cpanel and make a copy of your current “your-theme” theme folder to your computer. If needed, you can reload the previous version. Its also a good idea to backup your theme options. There is a “Backup” tab in theme options to export your settings. And always be sure to make a copy of your custom CSS field.

-  Do Not Keep Older Copies of The Theme In WP Theme Folder – You should completely remove all previous your-theme theme folders before adding the new updated theme folder, or you could end up with WP path issues, etc.

-  Do Not Rename The Theme Folder – If you rename your theme folder when you update, the path will no longer be valid. WordPress stores menus, widget settings and some other settings by folder path. You need to rename your theme folder back to the original state as while it first be downloaded, and your settings, menus, widgets will be restored. If you need to keep your previous theme folder, then simply make a copy of it some elsewhere before you upload the new theme

-  Reset Browser Cache - It is always recommended to reset your browser, plugins, server cache when you update. Visual issues may happen, and cache needs emptied. Each browser allows you to remove cookies, history and other data.

2: Update Theme

- Method 1: Remove old theme and upload new theme via FTP or Wordpress admin.

- Method 2: Read file: Changelog/changelog.txt from downloaded package and update change files

- New Visual Composer - When update versions comes with new version of Visual Composer, you should delete old-version and re-install it again.

You have to import demo content to your site like our demo.


Go to the WordPress Admin > Tools > Import and click WordPress as displayed in image below.

Once installed you need to activate the plugin and run the importer.

Select the XML file from demo_content folder in downloaded package that you have downloaded from themeforest.

After importing XML file.
Assign posts to an existing author.
