Hi, new to the forum.  I'm having some problems upgrading from Platform Pro 1.5.8 to 1.6.0. It gives me the following error message:

The update process is starting. This process may take a while on some hosts, so please be patient.

Enabling Maintenance mode…

Updating Theme PlatformPro (1/1)

An error occurred while updating PlatformPro: Download failed.

Disabling Maintenance mode…

All updates have been completed.



Any ideas on how to fix this?  Thanks in advance!

Platform Pro is a legacy theme and has been for quite some time (over two years). Therefore the update will not work, as Platform Pro is now open source and available via GitHub - https://github.com/pagelines/platformpro


What I would recommend is doing the following:


  1. Perform a backup as a precaution
  2. Download the latest PlatformPro zip from GitHub (link above)
  3. Connect to your site via an FTP client such as Transmit and then navigate to the following directory /wp-content/themes/
  4. Then rename the platformpro directory to something like old_platformpro
  5. Now extract the zip you downloaded from GitHub and rename the folder platformpro
  6. Then upload that folder to the wp-content/themes/ directory so you have the following structure:






Once you have completed the above, go to your WordPress Admin Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and enable the latest version of Platform Pro. You can distinguish between the two by the version number, the latest version is 1.6.1.
