Update Theme

Theme updates will be released on ThemeForest and can be installed on two different ways.

We recommend to use the Envato Market plugin to update your theme. You have to setup this plugin one time but every new update can be installed with a single click from your WordPress dashboard.

Envato Market plugin

  1. Download and install the Envato Market plugin
  2. Go to the Envato Market admin tab
  3. Generate a token by clicking the link from step 1 on the page
  4. Give your token a name and make sure to enable the following settings:
    • View and search Envato sites
    • Download your purchases items
    • List purchases you’ve made
  5. Click on “Create Token”
  6. Copy your token from the screen and (important) save it somewhere on your computer
  7. Go back to your website and add the token to the “Token” input field
  8. After saving the settings the theme will be visible in the list. If there is an update available you can update directly on this page.
