Setting up updates
Select the following checkboxes or more:
When a theme update is available it will be displayed on the Envato Market plugin page, as well as the Dashboard -> Updates page.
To perform the update, please go to Dashboard -> Updates.
Select the Chap theme and click Update Themes.
The update may take a while longer than typical plugin updates, it’s downloading about 20-25mb of data.
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 any of the bundled plugins has a new version, then you will be notified to update them as well.
To update a bundled plugin follow the Begin updating plugin link.
Then click Update on the Install Required Plugins page.
Now everything should be up to date.
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.
To update the theme manually:
.../wp-content/themes/chapfolder from your server
chap.zipfile from the zip file downloaded from ThemeForest
chapfolder from the
.../wp-content/themesfolder on your server
.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.
It’s also possible to “manually” update the theme by using the Update Theme and Plugins from Zip File plugin. If you install this plugin you can just download the latest Chap version from ThemeForest, extract the
chap.zip file as instructed above, and then upload it from Appearance -> Themes -> Add New.
You can also have this plugin automatically back up the previous version of the theme if you enable the option from Settings -> Update Theme and Plugins from Zip File page.
Every theme update comes with a list of changes that were made.View the changelog
Disabling theme updates is not recommended, but if you wish to do so then check the option under Chap Theme -> General tab to disable the Envato Market plugin and then remove the plugin manually.
