I have an issue I see was posted previously – that the slideshow suddenly stops on the second slide.
To resolve the instruction was to download the theme again from Themeforest. I did this, but as the theme is already installed trying to upload the zip file failed. I’m sure I’m missing something obvious, but how do I get the (presumably) updated theme file to upload?
I’m sure I’m missing something obvious, but I’m used to clicking on update to update the theme and not have to install a zip file.
Thanks for your help

You can try updating via FTP
For a quick guide on updating your theme take a look at this video on updating the theme via FTP:

As you will also see from the support posts when I developed the site, there were some customizations that were done through the edit, which I don’t recall what they were.
My fear is that I will overwrite something I may need. Is there a way to only update whatever causes the slider issues?
Thanks!September 24, 2013 at 9:44 pm #165845
Have you made any changes on theme files? If you did and not using a child theme, you will loose them. But if changes you made are only CSS changes you can copy them out from Quick CSS and/or custom.css file

I noticed in the version doc that it deletes the default twitter widget. This is still working on the site and I would like to keep it there and not have to use the twitter plugin.
How do I make the update for slider and not the Twitter change? Also, do I have to copy the custom CSS I added in the quick CSS area and paste it back in the updated version?September 25, 2013 at 7:23 am #165959
The twitter widget is not possible to be working anymore as far as I know. Its using the now completely retired twitter api.
You should only need to backup the custom.css file in case the permissions cause it to get written over. Otherwise a full update is done exactly as I went over in the video.
