Download

First download the latest copy of your theme from your members account. Save it to your desktop and click to unzip the file.
UpdateTheme_ZipSelect
UpdateTheme_ZipExtract
UpdateTheme_ZipExtract2

*On Mac computers, clicking the .zip file twice will auto unzip the file.

Connect

To update your Imagely Theme you will need to connect to your hosting account server via FTP (we suggest Filezilla). To quick connect you will need 3 items:

  1. FTP login URL
  2. FTP username
  3. FTP password

Open up your Filezilla client and enter in the FTP address, username, and password. For port #, enter 21 unless you know your hosting account connects SFTP, than enter 22, and then click 'connect'!
UpdateTheme_FTPconnect

Local & Remote

Once connected, navigate to your newly unzipped theme update folder on your Desktop, under the 'Local' [left] side of the FTP client:

UpdateTheme_FTPLocal

To your right, navigate to the theme folder on your site server under /wp-content/themes/imagely-journal :

UpdateTheme_FTPRemote

UpdateTheme_FTPRemote2 UpdateTheme_FTPRemote3

Transfer

Now copy all files in your Local [left side] and drag and drop them into the Remote [right side] folder on your server:

UpdateTheme_FTPTransfer
Click yes to overwrite files and once the process is finished, you'll see a 'success' message at the top of the FTP client:

UpdateTheme_FTPTransferComplete

 

You're done! 🙂
