About Theme Updater
Out of the Sandbox themes are the best reviewed and most popular Shopify themes ever — and now there's an easy way to keep your theme up to date.
The Shopify Theme Updater app lets you not only upgrade to the latest available version of your theme, but does so without losing any of your theme settings or customizations. This means that you can easily stay up to date and make sure you always have the latest and greatest version of our themes running in your shop.
Forever Free Basic Plan + New Pro Plan!
Out of the Sandbox customers get complimentary theme updates for life — which means ongoing access to new features and additions. * FREE: Update your theme to the most recent version, quickly and easily * PRO: Access to exclusive features like a detailed, line-by-line breakdown of any customizations you've made to the code, email notification when a new version of your theme is available, and support for copying over language files
How it Works
The app will first scan all your installed themes (both published and unpublished) to determine what your current versions are. You'll be able to determine which themes have more recent updates available. If you choose to update a theme:
- The update will be installed as a new, unpublished theme in your shop
- Your earlier theme version will still be available
- Your current color, font, layout and other settings under "Customize theme" will be applied to the updated theme automatically
- The app will also attempt to carry any customizations that you’ve made directly to theme files over to your new version
- Easily preview your store in the new theme version before going live
- Publish the updated theme whenever you're ready to make the switch
Which Shopify Themes are Supported?
Every Out of the Sandbox theme is supported
What About Theme Customizations?
During the update, the app will check to see if you’ve made any customizations directly to the code by comparing your files to the new theme files. If the app finds any custom code or modifications to the original files, it will attempt to replicate them in your new updated version. If the customizations are overly complex and the app is unable to carry them over fully intact, it will identify the files in question and notify you, so that you have the opportunity to update them manually. If you subscribe to the Pro plan, you will also get a line-by-line, detailed breakdown of the code differences, so you can clearly identify your changes!
Theme customizations are supported in Parallax 3.0+, Retina 4.0+, Mobilia 5.0+, Responsive 6.0+ and Turbo 2.0+. Upgrading an older theme version will require the settings to be configured again.
