Instead, to perform the update, please go to Dashboard – Updates.

The update may take a while longer than typical plugin updates, it’s downloading about 20-25mb of data.

Updating a WordPress theme

After the update, the next page you navigate to will trigger an automatic recompilation of Semantic UI CSS using any of the new CSS and theme options that the update might have introduced. If the bundled Chap Shortcodes plugin has a new version, then you will be notified to update it as well.

Theme updates always try to be as backwards compatible as possible and your website’s appearance shouldn’t exhibit any noticeable changes after performing it.
If an update changed something on your website, then please contact support and we’ll help you with restoring the previously intended look.

Updating manually
To update the theme manually:
Download the latest Chap version from ThemeForest
Remove* the .../wp-content/themes/chap folder from your server.
Extract the chap folder from the zip file downloaded from ThemeForest
Upload it to .../wp-content/themes folder
You can either delete it completely or back it up by renaming it to something like .chap-v1-14-0-backup (adding a period in front of the name prevents it from being recognized as a theme by WordPress) or moving it elsewhere.
