Comment on Stallion Responsive WordPress SEO Theme by SEO Dave.
“Dashboard” >> “Updates” – tick “Stallion Responsive” update and “Update Themes”.
To update the Stallion Responsive Child Theme, download latest zip file from the Child Theme page. Unzip and upload it over the current files (at “/wp-content/themes/stallion-responsive-child/”) using FTP.
FTP will also work for the main theme files if you prefer to use FTP for both.
Your Stallion Responsive 8.0 settings will remain intact. One exception, I added new options to the Stallion SEO Posts widget (widget that makes Popular Posts etc…) and there’s no way to auto update new widget options.
Easy to sort, after the update go to “Appearance” >> “Widgets” and for any Stallion SEO Posts widgets just resave them (click Save). This will add the new defaults.
After that go through the options pages to see if any of the new 8.1 features are of interest, by default I tend to set new features to off.
The above assumes you haven’t modified the main theme files or the child theme files, if you have you will need to ideally modify the new Stallion Responsive 8.1 files with your modifications or at least compare the files you’ve changed to the new to see if I made any significant changes.
Always put your modifications in the child theme folder, makes updates easier.
