How do I update Sympathique theme to the latest version?
Before updating the theme, make sure to backup your current theme version, located at “wp-content/themes/sympathique”, using a FTP program. Also, make sure to backup the theme options too. Go to Appearance->Theme Options and backup the options. In case you encounter any problems along the way, you can use the backed up data.
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 Sympathique package from ThemeForest and unzip it. Deactivate the current Sympathique theme and then delete it from the WordPress dashboard. Upload the new sympathique.zip theme version(Appearance->Themes->Add New button), located in the "Sympathique Theme” folder and activate it.
3. Manually, via FTP Download the Sympathique package from ThemeForest and unzip it. Navigate to “Sympathique Theme” folder, unzip the “sympathique.zip” archive and upload the “sympathique” folder to “wp-content/themes/” using a FTP program(i.e. FileZilla). Make sure to delete the old Sympathique 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!
