Step by step instructions on upgrading Farms 133 pack?

Greetings.

Are there any step-by-step instructions available for updating the Farms 133 theme pack?

My "WPMU DEV Theme Updates" displays a "download upgrade".

I click on this and I'm taken to:

https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/farms-133-theme-pack/

I've downloaded the zip file.

But not sure what to do next?

Do I simply unzip this and overwrite the current themes collection using FTP?

Can I upgrade the current themes from within my Dashboard?

Thanks for any guidance on this.

    hiya

    thanks for the post.

    have you read the usage page? https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/farms-133-theme-pack/#usage

    basicly it's a collection of themes.

    you have to unzip the pack on your desktop. then you will see a folder full of 133 different themes. you simply upload the theme folder you want to use to your wp-config/themes/ folder. to update, just overwrite existing files/folders.

    hope this helps.

    thanks.

    Dear Vaughan,

    Thanks for getting back to me:

    have you read the usage page? https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/farms-133-theme-pack/#usage

    Yes. But couldn't find any instructions about updating the themes.

    I thought there might be a "one-click" update function available.

    It would be very helpful if there was.

    Since there isn't, I think it would be helpful to include, on that page, something that explains how to update already installed themes. Or is there and I keep missing it?

    just overwrite existing files/folders

    Okay ... but ... I'm anxious about disrupting those bloggers who are currently using any of the themes that get updated.

    I suppose they might experience a brief interruption to whatever they're doing, but won't lose their settings? i.e. widgets, etc.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    hiya

    usually with themes there is a single install/update.

    but the farms 133 pack is NOT a theme.

    it's a collection of themes, so this has to be done manually by unzipping and then uploading the theme you want to your server.

    the themes should be ok to update & settings should be fine. the only problem you may get is the same as with any other theme, if you have made modifications to the theme templates, they will be overwritten during update, which is why it's always recommended to create a child theme if you wish to make edits to a theme.

    hope this helps.

Thank NAME, for their help.
