Fashionopolism Theme Changelog

At different intervals, all of our Shopify themes will go through changes, bug fixes, design revisions, code updates, and alterations. The purpose of this is to maintain and improve our themes to keep them current and ensure that they coincide with the latest features available to merchants within the Shopify platform, and remain optimized to meet the demands of modern device technology and offer an ever-improving array of features to merchants.

The up-side to this is that for merchants who have purchased a theme from us is that the theme will remain supported and active allowing them to update at any stage to a newer version at no cost. This means new features, new designs, improved performance and a website refresh without the need for a developer. 

Updating a theme does mean that a clean installation of the themes files to your store within its own separate directory that does not share code or impact on any other theme version installs, including your live theme version. This is a method that is controlled in how Shopify is built, there is no over-riding update that can be applied to make an old theme version include new code without it being installed line by line manually. This prevents loss of customizations and code changes to that older version and also provides a stable route to a fresh installation in the event of a disaster recovery situation due to modifications or app installations gone wrong.

Below you will find the latest code revisions for the Fashionopolism theme spanning the last 2 years detailing the changes and revisions made so that you may decide if an update to a new theme version is something that you would like to consider. We have instructions for updating a theme here along with our own update service for those that would like us to perform the update.
