    Hello,

    what’s the best way to update a theme?

    1 – upload via FTP the theme (folder and files will be overwritten)
    2 – via FTP DELETE THE OLD THEME before to upload the new theme

    I look forward to your reply.

    Regards,
    S.

    Hi,

    I personally would rename the current ePix folder to say ePix_v13 via FTP and upload the new ePix folder. That way, if there is an issue, you can delete the new one and rename the original folder back to ePix.

    Kind regards,
    Andy

    just a question .. if I rename the old theme with a new name I suppose that new tables will be created in the database.. wrong?

    No, as long as the new version is the same name as the old one, it will keep the menu and widgets in tact. So as long as the new version is the same name i.e. ePix, it won’t change anything other than the version it’s on. If you renamed the folder and didn’t have an “ePix” folder, it would act as if it had changed themes and knock out widgets / menus etc.

    yes but the ePix_v13 will create tables in database?

    No it won’t, because it will never be activated. It’s simply a folder on the server. But unless you activate it, WordPress will never add anything to the DB.
