How to update a WordPress theme from DinevThemes

Since may 2020, we’ve provide automatic theme updates as like is usual for themes from the WordPress.org repository. However it is an experimental feature available for some of our premium themes (you will see the link for Update now as usual if it’s available for your theme). For those of our themes that don’t have automatic update available you’ll have to update the theme manually after you saw an update notification on the dashboard.

Note: You can download the latest version of your theme from your account page.
