[Shopify] Update Theme

Update theme


When a designer updates a theme in the Shopify Theme Store with bug fixes and added features, those changes are not automatically added to your own theme. There is no automatic or manual way to run updates on your installed themes.

Download the up-to-date (latest) version from https://themeforest.net/downloads.

Install the latest version as an unpublished theme.

Click Go to your Theme Manager. On your Themes page, you can customize the theme while it remains unpublished.

To customize your new theme to look like the older version, you will need to:

Use the Theme Settings to upload your store's logo, choose slideshow images, and tweak colors, etc.

Replicate any changes you made to the Liquid templates of the older theme.

Uninstall any apps that add code to a theme and re-install them from the Shopify App Store.

Preview the changes that you have made to any theme by clicking the eye icon:

When your customized theme is ready, publish it by clicking Publish theme:

The old theme will be saved as an unpublished theme. In case you have forgotten to do a few things to your updated theme, you can keep the older one as a reference.

Is there any way to avoid recustomizing my theme from scratch?


Like no other, Since version 1.1.0 this theme comes with Export/Import Theme Settings feature which allow you easy to export all Theme Settings from your current version and import to the latest version.

Please go to Customize of your current version theme and click to More Actions at top left and choose Export/Import Theme Settings 

When the new popup appear, please press Copy Content to copy all Theme Settings of your current theme 

Please go to Customize of your latest version theme and click to More Actions at top left and choose Export/Import Theme Settings 

When the new popup appear, paste the copied Theme Settings from current theme to your new theme, then hit Update Preset button to update Theme Settings 

Download both themes, copy your images from the old theme's Assets folder to the new theme's Assets folder, and import the themes. Read more about exporting and importing themes.

Uninstall and re-install all of your Shopify applications that add code to the theme.
