Anyone know how to update a theme on wordpress.org?

Hey folks

Iv got a theme on wp.org - its an old one im looking to update https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/log/distinctpress/

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.

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: https://wordpress.org/themes/upload/

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