    I have to update the Graphene Theme in my web http://www.creartiendavirtual.com.es
    How should I do it without losing all changes I have done on it?
    Thanks!

    If you have modified theme files, they will be lost unless you move the changes to a child theme -

    If you have only made changes via the theme settings/options, those won't be overwritten.

    I made the changes in the styleSheet file
    Should I copy it or duplicate it in the child-theme folder?

    Thanks a lot!

    Ideally, a child theme style.css file should contain only changes - as copying the entire file creates duplicate code and makes it much harder to keep track of what you have changed. A file comparison tool like http://www.diffchecker.com/ may be helpful in locating your changes.

    Whatever you do, be sure you have backed up your site before updating anything :).
