Anyone know how to update a theme on

(Danny Jones) #1

Hey folks

Iv got a theme on - its an old one im looking to update

My question is, does anyone know how you actually update the theme so it no longer moans it hasnt been updated in over 2 years? Iv uploaded a new version as you can see in the trac but nothing seems to happen from this point and im unsure how to proceed

Any advice would be awesome :slight_smile:

Hmm, according to this ticket, your update was automatically approved. I’m guessing this is a bug. I’d recommend calling attention to it in the #themereview channel in the Make WordPress Slack.

getting a 404 on the theme-page though:


Once your theme gets live, you should get a email saying “Your Theme is Live”. Did get that email ?

Gonna go ahead and close this thread, as it seems the issue was a bug that has been sorted.

For future reference to Googlers, just upload your updated theme zip file (with a greater version number in style.css) here:

Of course, if you see your theme is set as “Live” but hasn’t been reflected on in a reasonable amount of time, let the #themereview channel in the Make WordPress Slack know.
