Having done theme upgrades for years using FTP this plugin is just the business. So far I have upgraded the flatsome ecommerce theme and several Avada theme installations and all without a single issue.. Perfect!!
WOW- have had an all day marathon with fatal error site issues and then stumbled onto this plugin.... just took minutes and I am no tec. Hardest part for me was figuring out what unzipped file to upload from my pc for my new theme.... then I realized it unzipped it for me. SUPER EASY. After all updates things are back up and running.
Simple and sweet. Makes the standard 'Add Theme' dialog able to do Theme upgrades in the same way Plugin upgrades already work.
When I used this plug in with The7 Theme it over wrote most of the pages with a bunch of html. Caution this is the worst plug in I have tried. Don't use it!
I freak out every time I have to create a backup of an installation and upgrade when there is no auto upgrade option. This plugin not only allows me to upgrade a theme, but backs it up and lets me download the backup, replaces the last version with the newone and it does so quickly and to perfection. I updated 10 themes today in a matter of twenty minutes using this amazng plugin.
Used it to update an old (version 3.5.3) Avada install and it worked perfectly. Took out all the worrry and hassle of updating the Avada theme. Color me happy!
Simple easy and still no.1 choice. Deserves a donation.
As someone who develops plugins, Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades is essential to testing new versions on live sites. With it, I can simply install new versions and backup old ones.
I was so happy when I heard about this plugin via the woothemes site as after having to manually update premium plugins that were not in the WordPress repos, I was wondering surely someone must have a plugin that could simply update or "replace" a plugin.
I never got a to do an extensive search... So when I encountered the issue of manually updating premium plugins again I was delighted to find this plugin that does exactly what I envisioned and does it very well.
Thank you a million times over for this.
Needed to update sites using WooThemes themes to include licensing details for 2-click updates. Worked like a charm!
