Updating themes

Theme designers sometimes release new and updated versions of the themes that they’ve published on the Theme Store. These updated versions usually include new features and bug fixes.

If you haven’t made any code changes to your theme, then your theme updates automatically. If you have made code changes to your theme, then any update won’t be automatically applied to your theme. This is since automatic updates remove custom code changes. If you want to update your theme but have edited the code, then you need to manually add an updated version of the theme to your online store.

Add an updated version of your theme to your online store

When you manually add an updated version of a theme, a second version of the theme is added to your online store. Follow the steps to add an updated version of theme:


  1. Create a backup copy of your existing theme.
  2. Visit the Builderfly Theme Store and log in. For paid themes, it is important to log in to the account that you used to buy the theme.
  3. Use the top bar search box to search for your theme.
  4. On the search results page, click your theme.
  5. Click Add latest theme version or Add theme.

After you add an updated theme

After you have added an updated version of your theme to your online store, you can do the following:

  • Customize your theme by using the theme editor.
