How do I Update the Theme?
We strongly recommend always keep your Zimac up to date. Backup your website and theme folders completely to make sure you have a restore point in case of any complications
If any direct customizations have been made to the main theme, they will still be overwritten when the theme is updated. We recommended better way to add your customizations is to use a child theme.

Update Theme using plugin Envato Market (Automatic Updates)

The Envato Market plugin allows you to access your Envato WordPress purchases from within your WordPress Dashboard. It allows you to receive update notifications and update automatically with one click.
Envato Market plugin has been included in Zimac theme. If you haven’t installed it yet, please navigate Appearance > Install Plugins.
