How to update to new theme version7 posts from 4 voices
Before updating, make sure to backup your database files, and you can also backup the theme files in a secure place. After the backup is done, in your WP Dashboard, go to Appearance > Themes and select the TwentyEleven theme or other themes, except Choices. Then, using ftp, go to wp-content > themes and delete the Choices theme. After deleting it, upload the new version of Choices theme. After the uploading of theme, go back to WP Dashboard and go to Appearance > Themes and select the Choices theme. Hope this helps. :)
Thanks. How are the theme and database files respectively properly backed up?
For the database, go to phpmyadmin, export the sql and the xml files. http://codex.wordpress.org/Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup
For the theme, just copy them then move it on a safe place on your computer.
Is there a way to update the theme that preserves any changes you've made to .php files? I've got custom taxonomies set up in my functions.php and have modified the loop-index.php in places too (as well as others). Is there a list somewhere of which files have been updated?
Yes, the thmeforest zip file contains a text file called "version.rtf". It tells you which files received an update.
