Updating your theme
Information about updating to the newest version of the Palo Alto theme
If you're coming from Palo Alto 4.0.0 (or higher) you are using the new structure of JSON templates. There might be a chance for you to transfer over some of the settings in your edited page templates.
Next, you can open the code editor of your current copy by going into your Online Store > Themes and clicking on Actions > Edit code.
Here, you should find the edited page templates with a small grey dot as an indication that they are changed.
What you can do here is to open up the edited page templates, we'll use
index.jsonfor our example, and copy the content to paste in the new theme.
The last step is to open the code editor for the new copy, open up the same file (in our case
index.json), and paste in all of the code.
Lastly, all that's left is to save the changes. If no build errors pop up, you have successfully transferred all of the settings that are still compatible with the new version.
Please note that it's possible not all settings will be compatible in which case you could run into a build error or just have missing sections.
If you run into a lot of build errors, then the best thing to do would be to manually redo all sections from the Theme Editor for the template.
