1. Update using FTP
Please note: make a backup of the theme prior to updating.
The theme is located in wp-content/themes/eva.
Go to http://themeforest.net/downloads to download latest version of the theme. The theme is located inside the downloaded zip in "Theme files" folder.
Copy eva folder into wp-content/themes/ folder. Make sure this folder is named "eva" (replace with old).
It seems scary but you really won’t loose any of your data. The only exception is if you have made edits to theme files like header.php, footer.php etc. These changes will need to made again to the new files. But all of your content and theme settings are preserved.
NOTE: If you did some customization/code changes directly in our theme files you might loose them after updating all files.
We suggest you to customize our theme using child theme and don’t change actual theme files as this will make it easier to update your parent theme.
2. Update using WordPress Envato Market (Automatic Updates)
The Envato Market plugin can install WordPress themes and plugins purchased from ThemeForest & CodeCanyon by connecting with the Envato Market API using a secure OAuth personal token. Once your themes & plugins are installed WordPress will periodically check for updates, so keeping your items up to date is as simple as a few clicks.
You can add a global token to connect all your items from your account, and/or connect directly with a specific item using a singe-use token & item ID. When the global token and single-use token are set for the same item, the single-use token will be used to communicate with the API.
2.1 Installing the Envato Market plugin
The latest version of the Envato Market plugin comes with theme. After install and activating the plugin, click on the “Envato Market” icon from the left sidebar. Here you have two options:
- Global OAuth Personal Token
- Single Use OAuth Personal Tokens: This works for individual items and additionally requires the Envato Market item ID. This is useful for a freelancer who has installed themes and/or plugins on a client site.
To generate your personal token, click on this link & login using your Envato Market login details.
Copy & paste your unique token into the Envato settings inside your WordPress dashboard.
Click on “Save Changes”.
Once you have configured this properly, you will see a screen where you can install or update your already purchased plugins & themes.
