I started a Magento 2 project many moons ago but never finished it due to lack of time and multiple commitments. Now, like everyone under lockdown, with a bit more time on my hands I’m giving it another crack.
My Porto support expired ages ago and this should be a very simple question, so I hope someone here with Porto experience can help rather than unnecessarily having to fork out $99 for support.
What steps are actually involved in updating the theme? Is it simply a matter of unzipping the latest version, uploading the theme files and then the patch files, following by running setup:upgrade? That’s what the documentation seems to imply. Yet, when I do that (going from 3.1.7 to 3.2.3), my Magento installation doesn’t look much different from before. I’m in default mode (so no need to run setup:di:compile) and not employing a child theme. When I install 3.2.3 on a fresh instance of Magento (2.3.1), it does look different as expected.
By “different”, I mean the that theme formatting is different etc. My current version is pretty much vanilla install of Porto. I’ve not done any customisations.
