This may be a nob question.
But I thought I read somewhere that the enfold theme now auto updates itself.
If this is true then does this still happen even if I am running a child theme? Just wondering if this only works with the parent being activated or it works without it being activated and running on a child as well?

I think I got this.
In the settins, update settings, add the theme forest credentials.
I did this and it showed the update but I had to manually click it to update.October 2, 2013 at 11:34 pm #169591
Yes, you will always need to manually update the theme from that section in the theme options. We may do something with the auto updates when they come out with WordPress 3.7 or 3.8 but no plans as of yet.
Doing it in a child theme will only update the parent as well.

Where? …where do you find these “settings”?? I can´t find anything inside wordpress allowing me to update the theme…!October 6, 2013 at 3:24 pm #171191October 6, 2013 at 7:43 pm #171266
but which is the easiest way to update from my current version…? (its 1.9 something…)October 6, 2013 at 7:45 pm #171268
Updating via FTP would be the best way in my opinion.
For a quick guide on updating your theme take a look at this video on updating the Enfold theme via FTP: https://vimeo.com/channels/aviathemes/67209750

Thanks a ton!! :)
Now I´m updated and all is well…except that the slider shows a red message instead of the slider.
Layerslider: Old jQuery issue
It looks like you are using an old version (1.10.2) of the jQuery library. LayerSlider requires at least version 1.7.0 or newer. If you are using the WordPress version of LayerSlider, you can try out the “jQuery Updater” plugin from the WP plugin depository. If you don’t know what to do, you can write us a private message from our CodeCanyon profile page. We need a temporary WP admin account (or a temporary FTP account in some cases) to solve this issue.
any suggestions?October 6, 2013 at 8:44 pm #171287October 6, 2013 at 8:55 pm #171294
Ive already done that…I actually updated wordpress before the theme-update…October 6, 2013 at 8:58 pm #171296October 6, 2013 at 9:06 pm #171299October 6, 2013 at 9:12 pm #171306
Can you try deactivating/removing LivePass.js and check once again?

Ok…I deactivated all active plugins, and now the layerslider are up and running again… :) So that worked super!
Now…Which plugins do i need for running the site?October 7, 2013 at 8:42 pm #171845
You should activate them one by one until you find the one that causes the issue :)

My Theme update says I’m up-to-date, but I know there’s a 2.4 and I have 2.2
I’m wary about manual install…if I’ve made a few minot changes via the editor (I think just to Functions.php) is that the only thing that will be overwritten?
(And out of curiousity, the backlog of page backups, does that get lost w an update?)
LeifOctober 29, 2013 at 3:15 am #181911
The theme update is from within the Enfold theme options at the very bottom.
You should backup your functions.php before updating however since that file will be written over.
DevinOctober 29, 2013 at 4:20 am #181921
Devin, I’m aware of that. Sorry if I was not clear. My point is that in that tab, it says I’m up to date. Which I’m obviously not. Not sure why it’s not seeing that there is a new update.
Secondly, when I tried a manual install, it gave an error that the enfold folder already existed.

If it isn’t registering my only guess would be that the data isn’t correct. You might want to double check the api key/user name.
The error you are getting just means your installation isn’t allowing you to write over the folder. You can either change the permissions on your wp-content>themes folders to allow for it, ask your hosting provider to assist you in doing that or just upload via FTP instead.
