Can you update my theme and transfer changes to it?

Yes, we can install the most recent version of your theme. However, this is a fresh install and will replace your current theme.

When a theme designer updates a theme in the Theme Store, those changes are not and can not be automatically added to your theme. Once installed to your store and changes are made to your theme files (tweaks, development, app installations, etc), your theme essentially becomes an "updated" version that is now different from the one distributed by the original designer.

Downloading the designer's updated version will replace your custom updated version.

What does this mean?

If you have customized your theme and want to update it, all of those tweaks and customizations that you had done will get lost and you will have to redo the work on your updated theme. It also refers to apps that you had previously added to your store. Ideally, you should update your theme first and customize it after.

If you would like to have all or some of the features and functionalities you've added to your previous theme to be implemented on the new theme, we'd be able to offer you a custom quote. Please provide us with the list of the changes you would need and we will advise how we can assist you. This must be done, whether a feature or functionality was previously completed by HeyCarson or not.

You can always reach us on the live chat or via email at [email protected].
