How to update to WOffice 5

WOffice 5 is a major update to the theme. In order to smoothly carry out an update to WOffice 5 from for example WOffice version 4, you will need to first download the theme from the Theme Forest downloads section (WordPress Themes & Website Templates from ThemeForest ) and extract the zip file. It is important to note that the zip file containing the actual theme will always contain a style.css file. Once the above is done carry out the following steps:

  1. Ensure that you carry out a full backup to your site
  2. Navigate to the Plugins section within your WordPress dashboard and deactivate the WOffice Core plugin
  3. Log into FTP Account using FileZilla or similar program
  4. Go to wp-content/themes directory
  5. Move to the theme directory that you want to update, which in this case is “woffice”
  6. Upload all files from the zip file you downloaded and extracted, to the directory on FTP we found in step #5 above. Here you can replace all previous WOffice theme files
  7. Navigate to the Appearance > Install Plugins section within your WordPress dashboard
  8. Update the WOffice Core plugin
  9. Activate the WOffice Core plugin

The above steps need to be carried out in the same exact order as outlined. Should you encounter any challenges, please feel free to reach out to the support team here.
