    Good day.
    I have an Xstore theme in my online store without a child theme.
    Updating the theme removes the entered graphics, template changes, translations, etc.
    How can I update the theme so it doesn’t remove anything from the page?

    Please, contact administrator
    for this information.

    1) Place theme transaltion (XStore core plugin) translation to wp-content/languages/themes (wp-content/languages/plugins) folder, not to wp-content/themes/xstore/languages (wp-content/plugins/et-core-plugin/languages) folder! Then you won’t lose your transaltion after theme and plugin update. It mentioned in our docs https://xstore.helpscoutdocs.com/article/30-base-theme-translation

    2) Did you change any images/code in the parent theme folder directly? Use child theme for these purposes. Never change parent theme files because you always lose them after theme/plugin update.

    If you need help with the child theme creation provide us with WP Dashboard access and we’ll help you.
