    It would be amazing if these two icons would work (heartbeat and life-ring). According to this page they are available.

    I found that there are actually many others that don’t work. Is there a way to import them all in the next Alyeska update?

    Hello,

    What version of Alyeska are you using? The latest version of Alyeska contains FontAwesome v4.4, which should have these icons.

    I upgraded the alyeska theme and it messed my the site up (http://venturecoffeetalk.com)
    So I I just upgraged to WordPress 4.3.1
    I’m looking at the Alyska version now and it saws 3.1.6.
    It says there’s another upgrade available so I tried again to upgrade and it won’t let me do it the second time.

    This shouldn’t even have been an issue because I put a code in so that it would automatically upgrade itself.

    OK, I realized I took out the child theme so I fixed that. Looks good but when I try to upgrade the main theme it still says “download forbidden”

    OK, I’m confused. Why do I have two parent Alyeska themes? I’m afraid to activate the right one.

    When you update the theme a backup is made of the one you’re updating from so you don’t lose it, in case something goes wrong. Simply delete the older version.

    When updating, you shouldn’t be activating or deactivating anything. Your child theme should remain activated through the whole process.

    OK, I deleted that old version. The process isn’t very intuitive. Thanks so much. But the problem was that it should have updated automatically and didn’t. I checked to see if my Envato code was still in the update option and it is.

    But the problem was that it should have updated automatically and didn’t.

    Apologies, for the confusion. If the Envato code weren’t in there, you wouldn’t be given the update notice and you’d have no way to update the theme through your WordPress admin. You’d have to do it manually through FTP, or however you manage files on your server.

    We just tie it into the default WordPress theme update system. WordPress themes do not update “automatically” in the sense that I think you’re expecting. As with updating a WordPress theme from wordpress.org, you’re given a prompt, and you need to take action to update it. We’re not really doing anything custom, except pointing WordPress access to where the update lives on Envato. The only part we add to the standard WordPress theme update process is the backup.
