How do I update my theme ?

In order to update your Sonaar theme, you must have an active subscription at sonaar.io.

First of all, like any theme's, plugin's or WordPress updates, we recommend doing it on a staging environment first and have a backup copy of your existing site before the update in case something wrong happens. You can check with your hosting provider to make sure they have a backup retention enabled.

Automatic Update

1) The best way to update your theme is to go to WP-Admin > Dashboard > Updates. Select Sonaar theme and click "Update Themes". See screenshot: https://d.pr/i/EUHlVt

2) Once the theme is updated,  make sure that your required plugin are updated and activated by going to wp-admin > Appearance > Install Plugins. 

3) Make sure to clear your browser cache!

* If you are using a WP Multisite or multi-networks and/or you can't see the theme update, you must update the theme manually. See below.

1. Login at sonaar.io/login and go to My Account > Licence Keys > and click View Details and Download and re-download the theme file on your computer.

2. UNZIP the theme file on your computer.
