If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Just downloaded the latest theme from themeforest due to some bug fixes.
What is the best method to update it without losing any data?
Can I simple overwrite the template or will I lose my templates?
If you’ve modified any theme files (like the stylesheets or php files) I’d suggest to use a ftp client to overwrite the updated files/folders only. Version.rtf contains a changelog and it will tell you which files were updated. Otherwise, if you didn’t modify any files, you can simply overwrite the theme folder because the dynamic templates, etc. are stored in the database.
