Before proceeding with the update, please be informed that updating your theme means overwriting all your current theme files with the new version’s files. Any code changes/modifications you have done with your current themefiles will not be saved that is why using a child theme instead for customizing the theme is suggested. However, all your settings and options (theme options, page options, etc) will remain after the update as these options and settings are saved on the database. I suggest that you backup first your current theme and just re-apply your code changes after the update.
There are either of two ways to update the theme, using FTP or using the Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin:
1.) Using FTP
a.) Re-download the zip file from ThemeForest which you can find on your ThemeForest Dashboard > Downloads tab. From there, you could see the list of your purchases along with the Morphis WordPress Theme. Just click the Download button and then the All files & documentation link just beside Morphis WordPress Theme. Usually a filename themeforest-2429191-
morphis-responsive-wordpress- theme.zip zip file should start downloading.
b.) After your download have finished, unzip it and you should have a folder named themeforest-2429191-
morphis-responsive-wordpress- theme. Inside this folder, you’ll find the Morphis2.0.0_WP folder. And inside this folder is the morphis.zip file.
c.) Now, unzip the morphis.zip file and using your FTP client upload all the contents of the unzipped “morphis/” folder onto your current “morphis/” folder on your site overwriting all its files.
d.) After all files, have been uploaded, the theme is now updated to the latest version.
