How To Update Shortcode/framework Plugins To Lastest Version?

On each theme, we have a special plugin name: themename-framework, such as with MEGATRON: megatron-framework, with DARNA: darna-framework…and respective.

Without these plugins, the theme won’t work properly. When update theme to version higher, you need to update this plugin to ensure that you don’t run into any compatibility issues with the latest version of G5Theme.


Update framework notice

Note: This manually update shortcode/framework just apply for these items: HEARTSTONE, ACADEMIA, MEGATRON, HANDMADE, WOLVERINE, DARNA, INNOVATION, GROVE, ZORKA, CUPID (This is not updated for XMENU)

Step 1 – Deactivated current plugin and delete it on your website (delete it and all files current)

Step 2 – Download G5Theme package (latest version from ThemeForest) and extract it. Find theme-plugins folder on path: [root_G5theme]\theme-plugins\



For example with MEGATRON theme, path: megatron/theme-plugins, you will see file.

– Re-install plugins/framework by upload file.
