I’m running 1.0 and should obviously update to 1.2, the latest version.
As there is, for some reason, no one-click install, I need an idiot’s guide to updating. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
I’ve downloaded it from Themeforest.
1. Now what?
2. Do theme options settings transfer to the update? I can’t face doing everything again.
Please assume that I know nothing about FTP or the location of theme directories for the purposes of this exercise!
the update won’t affect your theme settings. If you didn’t modify any theme files just switch to another theme (Themes > Appearance), then uninstall the “old” version of Flagship on your server. Afterwards unzip the package you got from themeforest.net ONE time. You should get a folder which contains PSDs, Docs and another zip file (which is called flagship.zip). This zip file is the right file. Go to your wordpress admin panel and navigate to Appearance > Themes. Then select the flagship.zip file, upload & install it.
If you want to be on the safe side you can use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/ to backup your database first.
