    Hi guys. I thought I had done a theme update last night, however my theme is still showing at 2.8 and I note that in the download section 2.81 is available. How do I manually install this theme whilst keeping all customizations.

    Also, changelog does not mention the google maps bug, has this been addressed yet?

    thanks
    vinnie.

    Thanks Daniel. Will i have to do this manually for every update of the theme? If so I might be keen to get a refund on this theme. Also could I get an answer about the google maps bugs please, other thread said the fix was hours away (that was a few days ago)

    thanks.

    it matters what changes you did, if you do changes only in theme options there is no need for manual update, auto update is just fine. If you do changes in the source code, then I recommend to use a child theme. Google Map issue has been solved 😉

    sweet, when will auto update be available then please, or what do I need to do to enable that? I have already set my username and password in the theme update options.

    thanks.

    you could ping the server in Dashboard -> Updates but it might appear after a short time 😉

    when you enter the credentials on the Theme Updates page, does it write the details are correct?

    Username and password are correct. You will be notified when new update is available.

    Im happy it works well for you Roman, however it doesnt for me sorry. Yes have clicked Check Again probably 50 times in the last 36 hours.

    Please advise. Is there anywhere in the database that a property may be set that is interfering with this?
