About Theme Updater

About Theme Updater

A bit of background: Shopify does not currently provide an easy way to update any themes when a new version of it is released.

You would normally need to obtain, then upload, a new zip file, then reconfigure all your theme settings again — including resetting all of your colors, typography, re-insert all your photos, text content and more.

The Shopify Theme Updater app lets you not only upgrade to the latest available version of your Out of the Sandbox or Pixel Union theme, without losing any of your configured theme settings. In some cases, it may even be able to carry over basic customizations that you or your developer have made directly to the theme code.

Free plan

  • Update your theme to the most recent version, quickly and easily
  • Use the free app to update any time

Pro plan with more features

  • Access to exclusive features
  • Detailed information about any custom code modifications that the app spotted in your theme that will need to be moved over manually by you or your developer
  • Email notifications when a new version of your theme is available
  • Support for copying over language files

Is this app right for me?

The Theme Updater App is a great fit that should save you time and ensure you always have the latest and greatest version of the theme in your shop if you these apply:

  • You have purchased a valid license for an Out of the Sandbox or Pixel Union theme
  • You have registered your theme
  • You have configured your shop using the Theme Editor
  • You have little to no custom code edits or additions

Stores with advanced customizations

If you or your developer have made extensive or complex customizations directly to the theme files then these customizations will need to be manually transferred to the updated theme.

How it works

  • Install the app (no changes will be made to your code yet)
  • Access the app dashboard to see if your theme needs updated
  • When you're ready, click "Update" to update your theme
  • The app does not affect your live store or make modifications to your existing theme code
  • Instead, the app installs an unpublished copy of the latest version of your theme
  • You should then preview and thoroughly test the new unpublished theme
  • You should consider keeping the old version on your store or downloading a backup
  • When you have fully tested your store and you're ready to go live with the new version, click "Publish" to switch over to the new version
  • If you find an issue with the new version even after publishing it, you can revert back to the old version

difficult to work with. Resistance to helping their client. Days to get help but it is false help!

Tried the pro version of Theme Updater to bring Atlantic theme 11.6 tot 13.4.5. The result was horrifying: a mix of badly placed page elements and duplicate items in the customize section. There is no solution for painless updating: I had to do everything manually. I think this tool only works for minor updated themes.

I'm super impressed with this app - surprising visibility into theme customizations and ability to carry those through release updates. Thanks folks.
