Updating Theme

Updating a theme may not be a pleasant task, as you need to download the new version, backup the old version, delete files and reinstall the theme. Fortunately, Envato released Envato Toolkit a while back that makes everything automated and in just a few clicks away from keeping your website updated.

NOTE: For preventing data loss, please backup your theme setting before updating theme/plugins, read how to backup in this section.

 

Here is how to update your theme using Envato Toolkit plugin:

  1. Install and activate the Envato Toolkit plugin in your site (included in the theme package or download here).
  2. Get your Envato API
    • You need to login to ThemeForest and visit your user profile page.
    • Click on Setting; you should see an API Keys tab in one of the section.
    • Click the Generate API Key button to get your API Key and copy it.
  3. Go to the Envato Toolkit menu on your dashboard, input your Envato username along with the API key then save your settings.
  4. Once you have your list of purchases displayed, you can install and update your themes right from your dashboard without having to login to ThemeForest.
