How to Download the New Version

When you download the latest version of Story, the new version will be added as a draft theme. This protects your current live theme as it's not affected by the download, it's a separate theme that you can configure and prepare before you're ready to publish. We have included tips on how to update your theme which will migrate your settings and homepage sections over to the newly download theme. Remember, downloading the new version of the theme will not replace your live theme, it's only added as a draft theme. You can publish the new theme when you feel it's ready for the public.

Be sure you've done the following:

  1. Create a backup copy of your existing theme.
  2. Visit the Shopify Theme Store and log in. For paid themes, it is important to log in to the account that you used to buy the theme. This will prevent you from being asked to buy the theme again.
  3. Click Add latest theme version or Add theme.

Tip: You must be logged-in to the account that purchased the original theme.

If you see "Try theme" and "Buy theme" options, logout and log-in again with the account that purchased the theme. Be sure the main button has "Add latest theme version".
