How to Update Food & Cook

Food & Cook 2

Things you need to prepare:

– Login into your Themeforest account and go to downloads (Dashboad > downloads)
– Download the theme into your computer
–  Extract the downloaded package and keep the file
– Choose one of two methods to update :

1. Update via WordPress Admin Panel
Go to appearance -> themes. activate any other theme first.
delete your current version of food & cook
Install the latest version like the first time you install the theme. (add new -> upload)

2. Update Via FTP

Install an FTP program (Filezilla is free)
Retrieve your FTP login information from your hosting admin panel and login into your hosting via FTP
Unzip the item main file
Locate (eg : and unzip it. make sure your unzipping software do not create extra directory with the same name nested into each other.
drag and drop theme main folder into your FTP program with the destination : “YOUR_HOSTING_ROOT/YOUR_SUBDIRECTORY/wp-content/themes/”
FTP program will give a warning that there is an existing with the same directory name, choose replace all.
It will take varying from 5 to 30 minutes to replace all files. once you done login into your wordpress dashboard and go to masterkey settings. on the header of the theme option (beside dahz logo) version will be changed to the latest version. this is the indication that your theme is updated. We recommend method one which only takes less than one minute.

then go to theme options (food & cook) and hit ‘save all changes’ button there (hit it once even when you dont change anything)
If somehow your product page is messed up, just install ‘regenerate thumbnails’ plugin and regenerate all your product images.

Done and Have fun!

NOTE: when you update the theme any changes you’ve made to css and php files will be gone, please reapply your changes after you update the theme.
