How to upgrade to Sydney Pro 2

Updating from Sydney Pro version 1.57 to Sydney Pro version 2.0.0 (and above) is a manual process because this is a major update. This is the only time you have to follow these steps, after you are on version 2 you can use automatic updates again.

Please note:

  • If you purchased the Developer or Lifetime bundles, please follow just the steps from B. because the theme is already in your account, ready to be downloaded.
  • It is always a good idea to take backups before making major changes to your website.
