Updating theme without losing content

Is there a way to update Illdy without losing content?

My website: www.farewellmedia.com

The dropbox menu on mobile/tablet is not working and I’m under the assumption (throught browsing this support forum) that updating my theme will resolve this.

I’ve updated images, CSS, content, menus, and set up Google Analytics, LeadIn, and Yoast. I really would like to avoid starting over. Unfortunately, I did not create a child theme first.



Hello Kevin,

If you don’t have modifications on the core theme files, none of the settings will get erased.

Just replace the files on the server after you made a backup and everything should be the same as before.


It removed all my custom CSS but luckily I saved it in somewhere else before uploading the theme update.

It worked otherwise.
