Hey guys, just trying to find some instructions for UPDATING, rather than installing, the flashlight theme. I’d like to not lose all my settings, if that’s possible, when I do this, but I don’t see any instruction specific to updates. (I kind of expected to see them attached to the top of the flashlight forum or inside the documentation, but nope.)
If you didn’t modify any theme files you can just overwrite the “old” files with the updated files. You can use ftp to transfer the files to your server. If you modified some files I’d make a backup of the theme folder first, then overwrite the files and modify the “updated” files again. You can also check the changelog (version.rtf/txt) in the themeforest zip file – often you don’t need to replace all files but just certain files/folders.
