It’s recommended to configure Envato Market auto-updates plugin.Ā It’s installed automatically with theme and you’ll find in your wp-admin -> Envato Market

After each theme update, please update included plugins. You’ll see admin notice in dashboard for that, if you disabled those, check in the Appearance -> Install Plugins

However, if you didn’t configureĀ Envato Market auto-updates plugin (it’s recommended) you can update theme and plugins manually as follows:

  1. Go to your downloads section on ThemeForestĀ http://themeforest.net/downloadsĀ and download theme (Installable WordPress file only) – it will be the lastest version.
  2. Extract the zip file and upload all filesĀ (overwrite old files) on your server to
    wp-content/themes/workscout/
  3. After uploading new version of theme you also have to update plugins. You will see a list of plugins that require update in Appearance ā†’ Install Plugins.

You wonā€™t loose any content or settings, but if youā€™ve made any customizations to source files they will be lost, so please use Child ThemesĀ http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_ThemesĀ to modify theme .php files. šŸ˜‰
