Learn how to update your theme.

When the theme is updated, the Bootstrap Themes platform will send you a message with a link to download the latest version.

First of all, review the changelog to see any HTML or CSS changes you need to consider.

Depending on your customization method, there are two ways for updating:

  • Updating compiled files

    To update the compiled files, replace the old CSS, JS, and webfonts (icons) files with the newer versions. All these files are in the dist/assets folder of the theme.

  • Updating source files

    If you are working with the SCSS files, you should replace all the files in src/assets/scss (excepting _user-vars.scss and _users.scss that contain your changes) and then compile the theme using the build tools.

    Notice that if you use the build tools included with the theme, JS files and FontAwesome icons are included automatically in the dist folder. If you use your tools, remember to update those files too.

If you're struggling with an update, don't hesitate to reach out to the theme's support.
