You should receive a notice every time the Listify theme is updated in your email inbox. If you do not please make sure your ThemeForest email address is up to date.

Visit and download the latest version of the theme by visiting the downloads page. While your here please rate the theme 🙂
Next click on the Download button next to the theme name and click on “Installable WordPress Files Only” to start the download.
Next temporarily switch your theme to the default WordPress theme by visiting Appearance ▸ Themes then click on the WordPress “Twenty Fifteen” theme preview image and click activate theme.
Next delete the Listify theme (Parent) by clicking the Listify theme preview image and click the Delete text link, it will ask you if you wish to delete the theme, select “OK” to proceed. Note: You should only do this if you have not made any CSS changes to the theme core files, you should ALWAYS make changes to the theme using a Child Theme.

Next click on Appearance ▸ Themes ▸ Add New ▸ Upload Theme and select “Choose File”. Choose the file which you just downloaded and click on the “Install Now” button then active the newly installed Listify theme.

Note: If you previously named your theme directory something different than what was originally downloaded you will need to rename the new directory to match. If the directory of the theme changes you will lose your theme-specific customizations such as menu positions and customizer options.
