    Hi,

    The application you are requesting to use for updating the theme (https://github.com/envato/envato-wordpress-toolkit) is redirecting to a newer plugin (https://github.com/envato/wp-envato-market).

    It says the plugin is not maintained actively anymore. Hence, our question, which one is safer to use and is the new plugin possible to use for updating the claue theme?

    Thank you in advance.

    Best,
    Team ArtK

    Hi Team ArtK,

    Thank you for report. Our theme work well with both plugin.

    The new plugin still have some issue you can check some latest comment at https://forums.envato.com/t/envato-market-wordpress-plugin-beta/21639/111

    So we recommend use old plugin it more stable than new.

    Best regards

    Hi Harry,

    Quick question about child theme update.

    We used old plugin to update theme and all is ok.

    However, if you look at child-theme version it says version 1.0.0 https://prnt.sc/g6a9ff

    The new version of parent theme is ok (version 1.2.0) https://prnt.sc/g6aaaa

    We use child theme which came with your original files to preserve customization.

    Can you please confirm that the child theme after update will import all the settings from the updated parent theme correctly?

    Out of curiosity, why is the child theme showing old version?

    Thanks a lot.

    Best,

    Hi Team Artk,

    We never update anything in child theme, we only update parent theme. When have update you only need update parent theme, the child theme you use to customize and override parent theme so your customize codes don’t lose when you update.

    Best,

    Harry
