- Start by logging into Themeforest with the account that you’ve used to purchase your theme.
- Click Downloads and re-download the theme you’ve purchased. You will automatically get the newest version.
- Go to your WordPress admin and click Appearance > Themes . Activate any different theme, choose delete files for the old theme and then upload the new theme and activate it. If you attempt to upload a new version of a theme without deleting the old version first, the theme install will fail. Deleting the old theme may seem scary, but you are not going to lose any of your content or theme settings. You will only lose the changes that you’ve made directly to the theme files. These changes will need to be made again to the new files.
If you are still uncomfortable deleting the old theme, we recommend using the Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades plugin, which allows you to install the new theme without deleting the old version first. The plugin also creates a backup of your current theme so in case something goes wrong, you can simply change back to the old theme.
