Merchants benefit from regular theme releases for many reasons. New features and bug fixes are often included in the latest version, so it is important to compare your current theme to the release notes and update if there is a new version available.
To find the version number for the theme, access the theme editor (Customize), then select Theme actions. The version number is displayed here with two decimal points (e.g. Empire 5.7.1).
Locate the version number (desktop)
- Go to Themes in your Online Store
- Click Customize to open the theme editor
- Scroll down, then select Theme actions
- The version number is listed at the top
