East Changelog

Current Version:1.3.1 — 22 March 2021 Documentation →

Back Up Your Current Theme First

Please backup your current used theme before updating to a new version.

  • Log in to your Ghost admin
  • Go to Settings > Theme > Installed Themes
  • Download your active theme

Theme Updating

First, download the new theme version from the email you received about the theme update. If you lost the email or the download link, click here for more details.

To update your current theme to the new version, copy and replace the below listed Changed Files from the new theme version to your theme.

In case of any listed Deleted Files, safely remove the files from your theme.

In case of any listed New Files, copy the files to your theme with the same file path.

Copying a file from the new version to your theme will override it. You could redo your changes only if the file received an update.

Once finished, zip your theme files, and upload the final zip file to your Ghost website.


Watch the following short video for a quick tutorial.

I always recommend updating your theme to the latest theme version to avoid future Ghost compatibility and API depreciation issues. Also, it will be easier to update to future theme updates too.

Troubleshooting

In case you encounter any issue while updating the theme, do/double-check the following:

  • Deactivate and activate the theme again
  • Upload the new/fresh theme version to see if the problem is from your theme or the new version
  • Restart Ghost
  • Make sure you uploaded the routes.yaml file if it is updated in the new theme version
  • Make sure you updated all the mentioned files in the changelog below
------------  Version: 1.3.2 — 22 March 2021  ------------

❗ Please update to Ghost 4 first and then apply this version.

[+] New: Ghost 4.0 Support
    - Fixing all compatibility issues
    - Support for the new Public Review content card
[+] Update: Deploy Ghost Theme Github action config file
[+] Improve: Log in and membership text copywriting
[+] Fixe: List items spacing issue and bookmark card missing dot. Thanks, Max!
[+] Update: ISO code for the Dutch language in search
[+] Update: Rename the Dutch language translation file name to nl.json instead of du.json
[+] Update: The theme is now using Portal notifications instead of the
built-in ones.
In Ghost 4.0, membership becomes an essential part of Ghost and no longer
a beta feature. Accordingly, the login/subscribe, and all membership browser
notifications come from Portal whether Portal is enabled or not.
So, when a person logins to the website, the theme will show a message,
and Portal will show one. Using Portal notifications ensures all notification
messages will be up to date with Ghost membership updates, eliminate the
conflict while login in, subscribe, or update a person's information.
