    Hi there. I am considering updating my theme to version 8.94. Has anyone had any issues or problems I should be aware of? Thanks in advance.

    Hello Laura,
    Version 8.9.4 was meant to fix some minor issues reported in version 8.9.3 so its safe to update just make sure you backup first please.

    Steps to update:
    1. Please create a backup for your site database and files first before doing any updates (themes or wordpress)
    2. Please login to: https://www.premiumpress.com/account/ then download the latest version.
    3. Login to your FTP or file manager on your cpanel hosting and go to the wp-content/themes folder and rename the old main theme folder.
    4. Please login to your wordpress dashboard > Appearance > And upload the new theme and Activate
    5. Done.

    Thanks Josh.

    Problem I do not know what and where is the content/themes folder and how to do the rename. What is the name I should write.

    I know These questions are silly. But I am very new and do not know most of things.

    The file is located in your wordpress installation which is in your server.Login to your host or cpanel locate ‘File Manager’ File Manager contains your site files/wordpress installation.Locate the file wp-content open it,locate the file themes,open it.If using the Real Estate Theme then the theme file is named RT,if using Directory Theme then the file is DT.Rename it to something like DT_old,the name you use doesn’t matter as long as you rename the file.
    If still can’t locate the file please contact your host for assistance
