Updating Modern Sherbet

To update Modern Sherbet you may do it via two options; note that if you have made any changes within the main theme, the changes will be overwritten. I recommend installing the child theme along with the main theme and injecting all customization’s there. 1. Re-write files Backup outdated theme Look at the Changelog at http://sherbet.theme.donaldlouch.ca/change-log/ OR in the download file; for File(s) Updated: (indicated with “*”); note down the changed files Download the theme folder from your dashboard on DonaldLouch.ca Extract “modernsherbetX.X.X.zip” File Extract “modernsherbet.zip” file in the newly extracted “modernsherbetX.X.X” folder Open your FTP client Login to your FTP account From your “public_html” folder navigate to /YOUR WORDPRESS INSTALL/wp-content/themes/modernsherbet Open new folder view Navigate to the newly extracted “modernsherbet” folder from the “modernsherbetX.X.X” folder Drag and drop the updated files that are listed in the changelog Click the “Replace” button or something of that nature Once uploaded go to your WordPress Install address Head to /admin | /wp-login | /wp-admin Login to Admin Level account Navigate to “Appearance” > “Themes“ Hover over “modernSherbet“ Click the “Activate” button; if not already activated Your Done! 2. Fresh Install (if no custom changes are made) Backup outdated theme Download the theme folder from your dashboard on DonaldLouch.ca Extract “modernsherbetX.X.X.zip” File Extract “modernsherbet.zip” file in the newly extracted “modernsherbetX.X.X” folder Open your FTP client Login to your FTP account From your “public_html” folder navigate to /YOUR WORDPRESS INSTALL/wp-content/themes Drag and Drop the newly extracted “modernsherbet” folder to the “themes” folder Click the “Replace” button or something of that nature Once uploaded go to your WordPress Install address Head to /admin | /wp-login | /wp-admin Login to Admin Level account Navigate to “Appearance” > “Themes“ Hover over “modernSherbet“ Click the “Activate” button; if not already activated Your Done! Once you have installed the theme I recommend you do some quick setup!
