Update Lebe Theme

There are 3 ways to update your theme: use Envato Market Plugin for automatic theme updates or manual update the theme via FTP or WordPress.

After updating the theme, all your content such as pages, options, images and posts will not be lost or erased by doing this. However, any customizations to the theme’s core files, such as PHP files, language files will be lost. So you need to the child theme to customize the theme and backup the lang file if you translated the theme.

Method 1: Automatic Updates

The Envato Market plugin can install WordPress themes and plugins purchased from ThemeForest & CodeCanyon by connecting with the Envato Market API using a secure OAuth personal token. Once your themes & plugins are installed WordPress will periodically check for updates, so keeping your items up to date is as simple as a few clicks.

  • Step 1 – Download WP Envato Market plugin.
  • Step 2 – Install and Active the plugin. To install the plugin navigate to Plugins > Add New and click on the Upload Plugin button at the top of the page. Next browse for the envato-market.zip file that you downloaded from Github. Then click the button to Install Now and when prompted click the Activate Plugin link.
  • Step 3 – If you translated the theme and the language files are in themes/lebe/languages/, you need to upload them to wp-content/languages/themes/. If not, after updating the theme, any customizations to the theme’s core files, such as PHP files, language files will be lost.
  • Step 4 – Click the Envato Market menu in WordPress and connect to the API.
  • Step 5 – Don’t forget to update the required plugins

All your content such as pages, options, images and posts will not be lost or erased by doing this. However, any customizations to the theme’s core files, such as PHP files will be lost.
