Introduction

« Theme Updater » was developed to make your life easier while updating the theme i.e. update it from your admin panel directly instead of re-uploading files using FTP method.

After filling these fields you will get a notice when a new theme version is approved on Themeforest and have the ability to update it in your Updates section, the same way as any other default WordPress theme.

Theme update is not automatic. It helps to get a notice about a new theme version only.

« Theme updater » feature is not available for multisite.

Do not modify info related to theme name and its version in your stylesheet (style.css) file. In this case you won’t get any notifications and won’t have the ability to update the theme, otherwise use FTP method.
