Reinstalling Themes

Sometimes when the theme has issues such as corrupted or missing files, reinstalling it might resolves the issue. If you didn't edit any core theme file or add any custom_style.css and custom-functions.php, it is safe to reinstall the theme without losing the theme settings and content. Again, backup your Themify panel settings before re-installing the theme. To backup the Themify panel settings: on the Themify panel, click Transfer tab, then click "Export" button.

Method 1) Re-installing the Theme Using Themify Panel

Using the Themify panel is the most fastest way to reinstall the theme.

  • Go to WP-Admin > Themify panel > Update, click "Re-install Theme" button.
    • It will ask you for Themify credentials. Enter your Themify username and password.
  • You may reinstall to the previous version by selecting the version number from the version dropdown and then click "Re-install Theme" button.
