How do I update Dazzle theme to the latest version?

Before updating the theme, make sure to backup your current theme version, located at “wp-content/themes/dazzle”, 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 multiple ways to update the theme.

1. Automatically, via Envato Market plugin(Recommended)

Envato Market plugin comes packed within the theme. If you don`t have it installed yet, do it from Appearance->Install Plugins. Once you set it up, you can automatically update the theme to the latest version.

2. Manually, via WordPress Dashboard Download the Dazzle package from ThemeForest and unzip it. Deactivate the current Dazzle theme and then delete it from the WordPress dashboard. Upload the new dazzle.zip theme version(Appearance->Themes->Add New button), located in the "Dazzle Theme” folder and activate it.

3. Manually, via FTP Download the Dazzle package from ThemeForest and unzip it. Navigate to “Dazzle Theme” folder, unzip the “dazzle.zip” archive and upload the “dazzle” folder to “wp-content/themes/” using a FTP program(i.e. FileZilla). Make sure to delete the old Dazzle 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
