    If I update the theme can you tell me what to expect? Is there a link to read about what I should do before I update or what will be affected if I do update from version 1.1.3? I do have custom CSS coding for the theme i added myself.

    Hello,

    You can see the changelog of the current version (1.1.6) in this file: https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/browser/blackoot-lite/1.1.6/readme.txt?rev=57789 under the “changelog” section.
    As you can see, there is no major change that should affect your site.

    As general rules of thumb:

    – Theme updates should take just a couple of seconds to install when you click “update”, and make no visible change on your site. They usually include under-the-hood enhancements, bug fixes and features additions; but should not affect your site in a negative or otherwise annoying way.

    – If you have made any change directly to a theme file (which you should never do), these changes will be overwritten.

    – If you have custom code added through a child theme or a third party plugin (like a custom CSS editor) then you are fine.

    – In any case, you should ALWAYS have your site backed up. Not only before updating a theme, or a plugin, or WordPress itself, but all the time.
    Most of the time you won’t need it, but if anything goes sideways at some point then you can always restore your site to a previous “good” state using a backup copy.
    If something breaks or gets compromised on your site or hosting server and you don’t have a backup copy, then you may have no way to get it back!
