Updating LayerSlider

Because of the massive size of the LayerSlider plugin this plugin isn’t included with the Total theme in a way that you can easily update it via the native “recommended plugins” function much like the Visual Composer. This makes installing and updating your main theme much quicker.

To update the LayerSlider plugin (if you are using it), you will have to update this plugin via FTP or delete it and reinstall it.

Updating Via FTP

  1. Re-download the full zip from ThemeForest
  2. Extract and locate the “Plugins”¬†folder
  3. Locate the LayerSlider plugin zip folder and extract it
  4. Access your website via a FTP or SFTP and browser to wp-content/plugins/
  5. Override all plugin files

Deleting & Re-Installing

  1. Make a backup of your sliders (export) just incase
  2. Re-download the full zip from ThemeForest
  3. Extract and locate the “Plugins”¬†folder
  4. Locate the LayerSlider plugin zip folder
  5. Log into WordPress and go to your plugins dashboard
  6. Locate and delete the LayerSlider plugin
  7. Re-install the plugin using the new/updated zip
