How do I manually update the theme to the newer version?

1. Manual Updates Via WordPress Dashboard

  1. Download the “installable theme” from ThemeForest
  2. Go to (WordPress Dashboard >> Appearance >> Themes) and activate another theme such as the default WordPress theme.
  3. Delete the TieLabs theme which is now inactive.
  4. Click on "Install theme" >> "Upload" and activate the theme.

2. Manual Updates Via FTP/SFTP Override

Of course, you can always update by simply overriding all files via FTP or SFTP.

  1. Download the “installable theme” from ThemeForest
  2. Access your server via FTP or SFTP (if you aren’t sure how usually your web host will have instructions somewhere on their site)
  3. Browse to wp-content/themes/
  4. Delete and override the Jannah folder files with the new ones downloaded in step 1.
Important: Sometimes files are deleted inside the Theme so make sure that your program is deleting all files and uploading the new ones when it overrides instead of simply “updating newer files”. It can cause issues if you have files on your server inside the theme that is no longer used in the theme itself.

3. Automatic Updates via The Envato Market Plugin

Envato released a plugin called Envato Market WordPress Plugin which can be used to manage all your themes and plugins purchased from ThemeForest and Codecanyon via your WordPress dashboard.
