Update the theme

From time to time, a theme update will be released that either fixes a bug and/or adds new features to the theme. You can update the theme in one of three ways:

  1. Remove the old version of the theme by going to Appearance > Themes and activating another theme (you may want to place your site in Maintenance mode via a plugin). Then, hover your mouse over the Recipe theme image and click Theme Details. Then click delete in the lower right corner of the window that appears. Then, follow the installation instructions above to install the new version of the theme.
  2. OR you can upload the new /Theme folder from the Recipe.zip file via FTP and overwrite the old files.
  3. OR you can use the Envato Market plugin which you can update the items automatically.

NOTE: Updating the theme will overwrite any changes you made to any of the core theme files (index.php, style.css, header.php, etc), but you will not lose any changes you made to the Customizer, Menus, Widgets, etc.
