There are 2 methods to update our WordPress themes to a newer version:
1.1 Update medix Through WordPress Admin Panel:
For this method you should first install the Theme Upgrades Tool.
Unzip the file you just downloaded from ThemeForest and locate the WordPress Theme. (medix.zip).
Login to your WordPress Dashboard.
Click on “Appearance > Themes”.
Click on Add New button on this page
Click on Upload Theme Button
Click “Choose File” and locate the new theme file. (medix.zip).
In the “Upgrade existing theme?” option choose “Yes” from the dropdown list.
Click “Install Now”.
1.2 Update medix Through FTP
Login to your Themeforest account and go to downloads (Dashboard > Downloads).
Download the theme to your computer.
Install an FTP program (for example, 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 theme.zip (medix.zip) and unzip it. Make sure your unzipping software does not create an 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/”.
The FTP program will give a warning that there is an existing directory with the same name, choose to Replace All.
It will take between 15 to 30 minutes to replace all files. Once you are done, login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Theme Options. On the header (beside Theme Options logo) the theme version will be changed to the latest version. This is the indication that your theme is updated. We recommend method one which takes less than one minute.
