    If I update to 1.5.1 from 1.3.1 will I lose all of the settings on my website?

    I’m looking for as seamless a transition as possible.

    …thanks,

    In theory, you shouldn’t lose anything when updating the theme, as long as you have not edited any theme files directly. This is very important to think about before updating, because if you’ve made any edits directly to theme files, including style.css, you will lose all your file changes after the update.

    If you’ve made changes to the theme files, I’d suggest you make a note of what they were and then redo them in a child theme, after you update the theme.

    As a precaution, back up all your theme files to your computer before updating. In case anything goes wrong you can re-upload your old theme files while you troubleshoot the issue.

    You may also want to take a screenshot of your settings under Appearance > Theme Options, as well as your widgets.

    You can see all the changes between version 1.3 and 1.5.1 here:

    Since version 1.3 is from three years ago, there have been quite a few changes since then.
