Updating Stratus Version 2 and previous versions

Thank you for purchasing Stratus 2. Please make sure you know which version of Stratus you are currently using before continuing. 

Not sure which version of Stratus you are running? 

Easy easy to find out, please read this guide.

If you are running Version 2.0.2b or earlier, we will be posting a direct link to the download below.


The most recent version of Stratus 2 is Version 2.0.2b and you can download it here.

Please do not download directly from ThemeForest, as you will be downloading a newer version that is not compatible with Version 2.


Once you have downloaded the zip from the link above, you can continue.

  1. First of all we recommend making a backup of your files and database when updating the theme, just in case even though it should go over smoothly.
  2. If you have made any modifications to the core theme files then you’ll need to make note of the changes, and in that case we would definitely recommend making a backup. A program like WinMerge (Windows) or DiffMerge (Cross platform) can also be very helpful in that situation. For theme file changes, we always recommend using a child theme instead of editing the theme itself.
  3. If you haven’t made any core theme file changes, the best way to update the theme would be to extract the download package and overwrite the theme folder over FTP.
  4. If you’re not familiar with FTP, then you can just go into the WP dashboard and delete the theme, then install the newly downloaded version of the theme as you normally would (note that you’ll have to switch the theme before deleting it, since WP doesn’t allow you to delete the active theme.) Since your content and settings are stored in the database, you won’t be deleting that content.
  5. If you have any questions, feel free to open a support ticket.

Still not sure?  Please open a ticket and we will be happy to assist.
