Updating your Theme Files

Enfold has had a pretty busy update schedule since release with lots of new features being added in as we get requests for them. The theme also needs to stay up to date with the newest version of WordPress and all of the supported plugins (like WooCommerce) so staying up to date is important.

Update through WordPress

From within the Enfold theme admin you can add your ThemeForest username and API key to get automatic update notifications just like you would from a theme installed from the WordPress directory.

theme-update-menu

Your UserName will be the same one you use on ThemeForest. You can find your API key from your Settings>API Keys section:

themeforest-API-Key

Once you have added these options WordPress will check Themeforest for theme updates every 12 hours. If you want to immediately check for an update make sure to save the new options, then head over to Dashboard->Updates. This will force WordPress to check for updates immediately.

 

Update through FTP

You can also update over FTP if you run into any issues with the WordPress updater or if you just want a bit more control over the updating process.
