i recently update my wordpress theme,, i read there was a hint showing before updating stating " all the changes you've made wil loose after updating" i was wondering what are that settings that i will loose? will i loose the changes that i made in wp-config file? or only those settings i will loose that i made "ONLY to THEME" ??
By changing theme, you wont loose anything related to wp-config.php
You should read this article.
will it effects settings that i done in backend like in cpanel? @GulshanKumar
What kind of settings in cPanel? Please elaborate.
Changing theme will reflect theme custom functions.php(If you ever added), widgets, which are related to theme.
setting like permission and all?
No, it shouldn't impact.
thank you @GulshanKumar
@BingoutDear, You're welcome!
It changes theme files only so you won't loose theme settings but you will loose edits you did to Theme Files such as functions.php, footer.php etc.
(Because Update Replace Theme With Newer Version)
