How to update your Dentalia WordPress Theme

Please follow these steps to ensure a smooth transition.

1. Backup your website

This is recommended, so if anything goes wrong, you can revert to the previous version.

2. Make sure all customisation is inside your child theme

If you edited the code in any of the theme files, move all your customisation into the child theme. If you didn't modify the theme files, you can skip this step.

3. Upload the new theme to your server

The new version of the theme is available for download on Themeforest. Unzip the downloaded theme and replace the theme files on your server. These can be found inside your WordPress Installation in wp-content/themes/dentalia folder.

4. Update the Dentalia plugin

There should be a notification about an available update inside your WordPress dashboard.

5. Update your theme options to rebuild your custom styling

This step is necessary, because we changed the way theme options are being saved. Following these steps will import your existing theme settings from the old version:

1. Go to Theme options -> Header & menu
2. Switch the header type & Save
3. Switch back to your original header and save again.
4. Hard refresh on the front-end. On Windows: Hold down Ctrl and press F5. On Mac Hold ⇧ Shift and click the Reload button.
