  Hi guys, 

  I Started using Venture theme approx 4 years ago and it seems that there has been some updates to the theme over the years which has added extra features.

  How do i update my current Venture theme so i can take advantage of the extra added features?

 I've read up about it but not a lot made sense.

Thanks

Hi @Sinister_Kings

Ren here from the Shopify support team, thanks for the great question!

Updating your current theme should be pretty straight forward. What you'll want to do is head over to the Shopify Theme Store, find the Venture theme and simply download it again. This will automatically download the most recent version and save it as a new theme in your Online Store settings. Before you do so though, be sure to rename your original theme so you can easily differentiate. To do this, just click on Actions > Rename on the theme in question. 


Once you have your new copy of Venture, it will be like starting with a blank slate so you'll want to work on this in the background as an unpublished theme until you have all of your layouts and app integrations properly set up. Once that's done you can go ahead and Publish the new/updated version of Venture and you're good to go! 

Hope that helps, let me know if I can clarify any of that for you. What are some of the features you're looking forward to utilizing from the updated Venture theme?

Thanks heaps @Ren7 !

One more question, is there anyway to know or be informed that the Theme has been updated in the future so we can update it?

 

Thanks again.

Happy to help @Sinister_Kings

That's a great question, at this time I don't believe we have any sort of sign up to get notified. I think that would be a really good idea though so I am going to submit this as feedback to the appropriate teams and maybe down the line it can be a reality! 

For now, I recommend checking in with our support team every now and then as we can cross reference theme versions for you and let you know whether an upgrade is due or not.

You bet! Always happy to help. 

Did you have a chance to download the new version of Venture? How are you liking it? Anything you need a hand navigating?

Hello , 

 

I read your post about updating a theme and I am bit still confused. I have currently an older Modular version which I have customized. I also have the new updated version of Modular- which like you said is like a blank slate but with alot of new features. Is there anyway of transferring over my customizations to the updated them? Or am I expected to rebuild the entire site again? 

 

Thank you for your help!

Hello @KELLY_AKER 

Thanks for reaching out for clarification. You do have that right though! It's a matter of rebuilding from scratch as there is no way to transfer over the code from the older version. I would suggest working on it in the background until you're ready to publish. 

Are there any specific changes you need to make that you're not sure of? You also have the option of hiring a Shopify Expert to transfer all of the data over for you - check out our Expert Marketplace here. You can post a job and receive proposals from various experts. Let me know what you think.

Hi there - we are running on a 2.5 years old version of Venture - and love it.

What are the specific improvements that you like?

Cheers in anticipation
