Installing the Theme

Immediately after your purchase, you should receive a confirmation email with a download link. Your purchase of the Hello! Pro theme includes a file called hello-pro-3.zip — this archive contains the theme files.

Updating from Earlier Versions

Updating from an earlier version to version 3? Hello! Pro 3 is a new theme and will not overwrite previous versions of the Hello! Pro theme if you have it installed.

If you have customized a previous version of the theme, you will need to manually add those customizations to Hello! Pro 3. Treat version 3 just like you would a new child theme for Genesis. In fact when you install Hello! Pro 3, it will appear as a separate child theme.
