How to update without losing settings


How do I update my theme without losing the settings from the version that I have now.
I tried looking at a preview of the new version and it seemed like everything reseted.
I really need this update because from 4.5 drop down menu no longer works, and other weird things happened.

Hello @pwagner,

You just need to replace the old files with the new ones.

Do you have custom work in the current files or what settings are you losing?

If yes, you need to replace the modifications in the new files, unfortunately.

A workaround for this is to use a child theme.

Best regards
