WordPress: How manually update your theme

Sometimes the automatic update notification might not show for various reasons, even if an update is available. This might be due to caching or another plugin on your site.

You can install the latest version of your theme at any time by going to the pipdig page in your WordPress dashboard.

If you don't see the same options on your site, please see the section further down this page

After clicking the button, the theme will be re-installed to the latest version automatically. You do not need to complete the remaining steps.

Don't see the same options?

If you're using an older version of the theme, you might not see that page in your dashboard. If so, you can update via the following steps:

1. Download the latest version of the theme from this page. You should now have the theme's zip file ready to upload to your site.

2. Log in to your site's WordPress dashboard. Go to the Plugins > Add New page, then search for "Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades". Install and activate the plugin:

3. Go to Appearance > Themes in your dashboard:

4. Click the "Add New" button at the top of the screen:

5. Click the "Upload Theme" button:

6. Click the "Browse" button, then select the zip file you downloaded from your email receipt. Then click "Install Now":

That's it! The theme should now be updated to the latest version.
