Version released: 5.0.5
Date: December 19th, 2014
Update Type: Non-critical – Maintenance Update
Today marks the release of version 5.0.5.
We feel confident in saying this will be our last ‘bugfix’ update released in the 5.0 series and have all of you buyers to thank for your patience & help.
The 5.0 series of our theme marks the release of our responsive theme. It was a big update coming from version 4.1.6 (our last stable non-responsive version) to what is being released today as version 5.0.5. We anticipated some issues when first releasing 5.0 and we thank you for your patience and help while fixing them.
IMPORTANT that you remember to BACKUP FIRST before you update!
We cannot be held responsible for any issues. If there are issues, we encourage a backup for safe keep.
That being said, updating your version of KingSize WordPress should be relatively simple and straightforward.
Using an FTP program of your choice (ie., FileZilla it’s free!) log into your hosting environment.
Navigation to your WordPress installation and find “/wp-content/themes/” and inside it “/kingsize/”.
Assuming you’ve downloaded the updated version, you want to open the folder you download and navigate to:
DESKTOP -> KingSize WordPress 5.0.5 -> Template Files -> 1. Version 5.0.5 (NEW)
Inside this folder you will find two folders labeled as “kingsize”. One is zipped, the other is not.
It’s quicker to upload the zipped version but also requires you taking additional steps such as logging into your hosting account control panel, going to File Manager and then locating that zipped folder you’ve uploaded and then extract it to overwrite the existing “/kingsize/” folder. The already extracted folder on your desktop can be uploaded to overwrite the existing folder in your “/themes/” directory but will take longer to overwrite those individual files. The method preferred is up to you.
Once you’ve overwritten that existing “/kingsize/” folder you should now be running the latest version.
To confirm, log into your WordPress Dashboard -> Appearance -> Themes and check the screenshot version.
