    Hi. I was hoping someone can help me upgrade my theme. I upgraded woocommerce and now I’m having problems with the product sliders not displaying in Abundance. I’m using the c-panel in hostgator to access my files. What files need updating? Will any photos, descriptions,or custom templates be lost? Sorry, I’m a noob :)

    Thank you



    please use version.rtf (the changelog file which is inside the themeforest zip file) to determine which files require an update. In my version.rtf I found following changes:

    2012 02 05 - Version 1.2.1
    modified files and folders:
    file: style.css - version number
    file: functions.php - single page pricing fix
    folder: config-woocommerce

    2012 02 04 - Version 1.2
    woocomemrce bugfix release:
    the theme now works fine with woocommerce 1.4 and higher. if you update the theme please make sure that you also update your woocommerce plugin, otherwise the theme might break!

    modified files and folders:
    file: functions.php
    file: style.css - version number
    file: includes/helper-tempaltes.php - dynamic shop element update
    folder: woocommerce -config- update for woocommerce version 1.4

    Version 1.1.4
    December 20th 2011
    file: style.css: fixed a bug in google chrome + updated version number
    file: footer.php
    update woocommerce config folder

    2011 11 06 - Version 1.0.1
    Small css fixes to style.css
    update woocommerce config folder

    2011 11 06 - Version 1.0


    Thanks dude. I wish I knew how to do that. If I were to install the entire theme will my existing theme settings be lost?

    Will there be any way to upgrade the theme in the future by just clicking update?


    If you didn’t modify any theme files nothing will be lost. You can simply install the new theme. Otherwise I’d just replace the updated theme files via ftp. There won’t be an automatic update feature because themeforest doesn’t support it by now.


    Thank you. When I try to upload the new theme on wordpress I get this message.

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Am I doing something wrong?


    Ok. I got it! It wouldn’t let me upload the new theme because of the old theme. So I named the new version and it worked. There isn’t any problem with that is there? Everything seems to be working properly.



    There’s no problem with renaming the .zip – good to see this solved. I’ll mark this topic as resolved :)

    Best regards,
