Manual Update Method

With the Manual Update Method, you can either choose to manually upload the theme files via FTP or WordPress. Before you manually update, you have to download the theme files from ThemeForest. Continue read the  instructions below about how to download and upload theme files.

Download The Traveler Theme Files From ThemeForest

Step 1 – Login your ThemeForest account, navigate to ‘Downloads’ tab and locate your Traveler theme purchase.

Step 2 – Click the ‘Download’ button and choose either download the ‘Install-able WordPress file only’, which is just the WordPress install-able file or choose to download ‘All Files & Documentation’ which is the full Traveler theme package.

Step 3 – After download the files, you need decide to upload the theme files via FTP or WordPress. For instructions on both methods, please continue read following information.

 

Update Traveler Via FTP

Upload the theme files via FTP requires you to delete your old theme folder entirely. This can ensure that any deprecated theme files are completely removed.

IMPORTANT NOTE – We highly recommend backup your theme, files and database before update.

Step 1 – Login your server using FTP and navigate to the wp-content > themes folder. Here you’ll find a folder ‘traveler’.

Step 2 – Backup the ‘Traveler’ theme folder by saving it in your computer, or simply delete it. Your content such as pages, options, images and posts will not be lost or erased by doing this. However, any customization to the theme’s core files, such as PHP files will be lost unless you’re using a child theme.

Step 3 – Retrieve the theme files you’ve just downloaded. If you’ve downloaded the install-able WordPress file, then you only need to extract it to get into the ‘Traveler’ folder. If you’ve downloaded the Full Theme Package you must extract it to access the ‘traveler.zip’ file, and then extract the  ‘traveler.zip’ file to get into the ‘traveler’ folder.

Step 4 – Once extracted you can drag and drop the new Traveler theme folder into wp-content > themes folder location. Make sure the folder is traveler.

Step 5 – Don’t forget to update the required plugins

Update Traveler Via WordPress

IMPORTANT NOTE – We highly recommend backup your theme, files and database before update.

Step 1 – First you need to deactivate your current Traveler theme located in the WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Themes section of your Installation. To deactivate, simply switch to a different theme. For example, the default WordPress Twenty Sixteen theme.

Step 2 – After deactivate you can delete it. To do this, hover over the theme thumbnail then click ‘Theme Details’. In the bottom right corner of the window, click the ‘Delete’ button. Your content such as pages, options, images and posts will not be lost or erased by doing this. However, any customization to the theme’s core files, such as PHP files will be lost unless you’re using a child theme.

Step 3 – Retrieve the theme files you’ve just downloaded. If you’ve downloaded the install-able WordPress file, then you do not need to extract it. If you’ve downloaded the Full Theme Package, you have to extract it once to access the secondary ‘traveler.zip’ file.

Step 4 – For install, navigate to the WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Themes section of your installation, once again, and click the ‘Add New’ button near the top of the page. Click the ‘Upload Theme’ button.

Step 5 – Click on the ‘Choose File’ button and select the Install-able ‘traveler.zip’ file and upload. When it uploaded, click ‘Install Now’.

Step 5 – When this has been successfully completed, re-activate the theme by click the ‘Activate’ link.
