Step 4

You can get latest theme version easily with this Themes section after a while.

Step 2

One Click Demo Data Options

Theme has dedicated data option. You should click one of those link and select your desired Concept home page layout. Action will set a few important tasks including selection of Home page, Main navigation setting and Sidebar widgets when you click on Import Demo Data button.

Demo data

Note: Please wait patiently for a while until imports all the content. Delay time is depends on your server upload speed but it won't be exceed than 2 minutes.


Full content Demo site setup

Previous option helps you to include minimized demo content on your site reason for quick include. But you can have full demo data with regular XML data imports.

  1. Go to Tools → Import
  2. Choose WordPress from the list.
  3. Upload the demo concept.xml using the form provided on download. (concept deltegates newspaper, movie, ...)
  4. You will be asked to map the authors in this export file to users on the blog. For each author, you may choose to map to an existing user on the blog or to create a new user.
  5. You will then have the choice to import attachments, so click on the “Download and import file attachments” box.
  6. Please be patient while WordPress imports all the content. Posts, Pages, Projects, and Menus are imported. You will need assign the menu a theme location & you’ll need to configure widgets. This is a limitation of WordPress’ import system.


Please make sure you backup your existing theme folder before updating. Additionally we recommend performing the update on a development site before making it on your live site.

Via Envato Toolkit Plugin (recommended)

Hope you have provided your account information in Envato Toolkit plugin. If you go to the Envato Toolkit => Themes page, you'll see similar to following image. Let's click on Update automatically link at right bottom. This is a most efficienat and easy way to integrate latest verion on your site.

After clicking to auto-update, you’ll see the confirmation that everything worked correctly.

Step 2

Via WordPress theme uploader

Go to the Appearance => Themes and activate another theme than Tana such as TwentyTwelve, TwentyThirteen or Tana child theme. Delete the old version of the theme because folder name existing error comes up when we try to install it without deletion. Then install the theme again as you see early in this documentation.

Via FTP client application

Usually updating a theme means replacing the old files with the new ones. You can see changelog.txt file from the new download archive and you can get updated files list as modified/added and deleted. Upload and overwrite those files on your theme directory.

If theme changed lots of files and you really hard to collect changed files, there is a better way to do it when it comes to WordPress themes.

WordPress treats two version of the same theme as different themes. That is, if you have Tana v1.2 and v1.3 in your wp-content/themes folder they are treated as two different themes independent of each other.

That means you can have multiple version of the same theme installed on your blog. So whenever there is a new version of your theme available, instead of replacing or deleting the files of the older version follow this procedure.

  1. Try to upload new theme archive to the site
  2. If the folder name of the new version clashes with the old version, rename the folder of new version.
  3. Upload the new version to your wp-content/themes folder via FTP or through the interface provided by your web host or by using the upload feature in WordPress.
  4. Activate the new version from your dashboard.

The main advantage of following the above procedure is you can quickly switch back to the old version of the theme if you find any problems with the new version or if it clashes with any plugins you are using.
