Please note that update can not bring all advance customize work which you did by modified our theme files or app integration.
Note:You cannot update from previous Gecko versions to Gecko5. Because Gecko5 is a completely new version and has many user-friendly improvements and is easier to use. If you want to switch from older versions of Gecko to Gecko5 then you most likely have to do a complete set-up again.
You can download our theme again and extract it to see the theme upload package (like when you used the previous version). Please follow some steps below to understand how to update our items from the old version to the new version. it takes only 1 minute to update.
If you have customized the old version (such as hiring a developer to write new features or customizing our theme) so that the updated version cannot carry these codes, you will need to migrate all the custom code by hand.

a - On old site
Go to Theme actions -> Edit code
