    1. i installed Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin although all it really seems to tell me is my theme needs an update; 1.4.2 to 1.5.  but there’s no way to update it in place; it seems i need to manually download the newest version to update it anyway; is this all the plugin does?  is there no way to simply update the theme?  i thought all my other themes just updated from the site without me having to manually do anything outside of click update.

     

    2. if i download and write over the existing 1.4.2 theme, is it going to change the look of my site or any config options?

    Hi @sickmint79,

     

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

    i installed Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin although all it really seems to tell me is my theme needs an update; 1.4.2 to 1.5.  but there’s no way to update it in place; it seems i need to manually download the newest version to update it anyway; is this all the plugin does?  is there no way to simply update the theme?  i thought all my other themes just updated from the site without me having to manually do anything outside of click update.

    The gillion theme is distributed from envato marketplace and not from WordPress.org repository so it doesn’t update automatically like other themes distributed from WordPress.org repository and you have to update it as described in the following pages.

    No it won’t change the look of my site or any config options.
