This question applies to Steam (WordPress)


To update your theme:

  • To download the latest version of the theme, go to the "Downloads" tab in your account. Select "Installable Wordpress file only" to download the latest theme files.
  • Unzip the downloaded theme files on your computer
  • Use your ftp client to copy (overwriting) the files to wp-content/themes/[theme-name]/ on your host server. You can either upload all files completely, or just the ones listed in the update log below if you prefer.
