Deleting the Free Version

If you have the free version of Shopstar! installed you will need to delete it before you can install the Premium version. Don’t worry, you won’t lose any of your content, theme settings or widgets when you do this. However you will lose any code customizations that you’ve made directly to the theme file (CSS, PHP, JavaScript, etc.). To delete the free version just follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to the themes section of your WordPress admin. If your active theme is the free version of Shopstar! then you will need to activate any other theme that is installed. You can do this by hovering over any of the other themes in your list of themes and clicking the “Activate” button. If you don’t have any other themes installed you can just install another free theme by clicking the “Add New” button at the top of the page. You will be taken to a page showing you other free WordPress themes which you can install and activate.
  2. Once you have activated another theme, click the deactivated Shopstar! theme. You will see a popup window with information about the theme. There will also be a small delete button in the bottom right. Click this button.
  3. You will see a prompt asking you if you are sure that you want to delete the theme. Click Ok.
  4. The theme will be deleted and you will be taken back to the themes pages of your admin with a little message at the top of the page telling you the theme has now been deleted.
