How to update Tower Business-Driven WordPress Theme
There are 2 ways to update Tower WordPress Theme:
- Update it automatically from Envato with this plugin https://github.com/envato/envato-wordpress-toolkit
- The best way to update Tower WordPress Theme manually
The manually method consist in replace the old files with the new one and reinstall the updated plugin, in our case Visual Composer.
Now download the new update from Tower WordPress Theme or if you have purchased theme go to Downloads and download the theme again. So first lets replace all the files one by one like they are described in the ChangeLog before . Also don’t forget to replace the entire folder admin. After that we have to install the new Visual Composer plugin that has come with new update of Tower WordPress Theme.
The new Visual Composer file its located into the “plugins/js_composer.zip”. Now lets log into WordPress Dashboard > Plugins >WPBakery Visual Composer. Deactivate the plugin and delete the plugin. Then go to Appearance -> Install Plugins -> WPBakery Visual Composer . Click on install and after the installation click Activate.
Visual Composer now its updated and the Theme too. You can enjoy the new update.
NOTE: Any page built with Visual Composer will remain identically the same that was before the update. So with the update of the plugin you will not loose any previous work done before.
In case you have made changes in the other files described in the ChangeLog without using child-themes will be lost. In next articles i will describe how you can use Child Themes with Tower or Specular WordPress Themes.
