How to update my theme & plugins?


1. Update the theme

There are a couple of different ways to update your theme to the latest version:

Automatically Update:  Setup WordPress Envato Market plugin

The Envato Market plugin will display a notice in your WordPress dashboard when an update is available. To setup:

  1. Download the Envato Market plugin and install it through the WordPress Admin Plugin Upload.
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Navigate to the Envato Market menu, follow the instructions to generate a Global OAuth Personal Token, and enter the Token in your WordPress Dashboard.

Manually Update:

Go to your download area: http://themeforest.net/downloads and click to download the theme, Example: "Athlete - Fitness, Gym and Sport Wordpress theme".

Find the file athlete.zip, extract & upload this file to themes folder \wp-content\themes (overwrite all existing files).

Always Use a Child Theme

Updating your themes shouldn’t affect any customizations to your website, if you’re using a child theme.

2. Update the plugins:

After update the theme you can see this notification:

The update page will be:


Click "update button" to finish.

3. Can I get all plugin zip files?

Yes, you can see all zip files in the folder:

\wp-content\themes\theme_folder\framework\plugins

or this folder (for old framework versions):

\wp-content\themes\theme_folder\admin\plugins
