Hey there, I’m the web editor of Atrium Magazine. You can find our website here.
We have Photofocus Pro, which is available for an update. However, when I go to update it notes that “any customizations you have made to theme files will be lost.” We’ve made several customizations through a plugin called ‘Custom CSS and JS.’ Do those count as customizations to the theme file? I want to update, but I don’t want to lose our customizations.September 13, 2022 at 12:35 am #310839tikaramKeymaster
@monibasu : It is always recommended to make changes to your theme through a child theme or a plugin. If you have not edited any theme files, theme update will not affect your site but if you have made any changes to the theme files directly, the changes will be lost during an update. As you have mentioned that you have made changes through the help of plugin, the site should not be affected.
I suggest you to take a backup of your files and database before updating the themes so that you may restore from backup if any issues persists or if you loose any of your customization.

@tikaram : Thanks for the advice! I’ve backed up my site, but when I tried to update the theme I got this error message:
Enabling Maintenance mode…
Updating Theme PhotoFocus Pro
An error occurred while updating PhotoFocus Pro: Download failed. Unauthorized. Disabling Maintenance mode…
How can I ‘authorize’ the update?September 15, 2022 at 1:55 am #310969SakinKeymasterJanuary 12, 2023 at 6:09 am #314367AmtaParticipant
