How do I update Stag theme to the latest version?
Before updating the theme, make sure to backup your current theme version, located at “wp-content/themes/stag”, using a FTP program. Also, make sure to backup the theme options too. Go to Appearance->Delicious Options->Import/Export and export the options. In case you encounter any problems along the way, you can use the backed up options.
There are more ways to update the theme.
1. Automatically, via Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin(Recommended)
Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin comes packed within the theme. If you don`t have it installed yet, do it from Appearance->Install Plugins. Then follow this guide: http://goo.gl/wfzSbH or this video guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC68VigIbCQ to set up the plugin.
Once you do that, you can automatically update the theme to the latest version.
2. Manually, via WordPress Dashboard Download the Stag package from ThemeForest and unzip it. Deactivate the current Stag theme and then delete it from the WordPress dashboard. Upload the new stag.zip theme version(Appearance->Themes->Add New button), located in the "Stag Theme” folder and activate it.
3. Manually, via FTP Download the Stag package from ThemeForest and unzip it. Navigate to “Stag Theme” folder, unzip the “stag.zip” archive and upload the “stag” folder to “wp-content/themes/” using a FTP program(i.e. FileZilla). Make sure to delete the old stag theme from wp-content/themes/ folder before uploading the new version.
After the theme update is done, you`ll be asked to update the current plugins (RevolutionSlider, Visual Composer, etc) to their latest versions. Make sure to do that too(you could do it from Appearance->Install Plugins), in order to finish the updating process.
Afterwards you`re all set up!
