How to upgrade to the latest Thesis 2.4.1 WordPress Theme

The newest version of Thesis wordpress theme 2.4.1 have just been released.

Even though this tutorial covers for version 2.4.1, the same method is applicable for all future releases as well.

There are 2 ways to update to the latest version of Thesis wordpress theme:

A. Via direct upgrade option at your WordPress Dashboard.

B. Updating the file theme manually 

A. Via direct upgrade option at your WordPress Dashboard.

Via the upgrade option directly available at your Dashboard after you login to your self hosted WordPress account.

By clicking on “Update Now” link, your Thesis wordpress theme would automatically be updated to the latest version.

B.Updating/adding the latest Thesis wordpress theme for your site:

This would be applicable if you:

  • you are not able to find the option for upgrade in your WordPress Dashboard as you are using a much older Thesis version
  • you have created a new site and wish to install the Thesis wordpress theme

To do this, you need to:

a. Log in your account at DIYthemes.com. If you got the theme from someone else who had bought it, you would need to request the person to help you to download the version for you (that is why it is always a good idea to have an actual account that belongs to you if you are going to be building/updating your site or plan to build more than 1 site).

The download option is under “Helpful links” at “Download Thesis”.

b. Click at “Download Thesis” to download the latest Thesis wordpress theme. By default if you have not changed the setting in your computer, the file would be downloaded at your “downloads folder”. It would be a zip file.

c. Login to your WordPress Dashboard account. Go to Appearance> Themes> Add Themes> Upload Themes. You would see a box on “Choose File”:

Select the Thesis zip folder that you have just downloaded. Then click on “Open” at the pop up folder. You would see the file name called thesis.zip being listed.

Click on “Install Now”. Wait for a little while as the theme file gets updated. One the theme successfully updated, you would see the screen below:

Click on Activate and your new Thesis theme is updated.

Your Thesis is now successfully updated :):

By default, the Classic Responsive Skin will come pre-installed with your Thesis wordpress theme.
