Upgrading to CoverNews Pro
CoverNews Pro is a new theme so you install it by uploading the theme zip to WordPress (Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme). You won’t lose any of your content (posts, pages etc) when you activate it.
Step 1: Collect the Pro .zip file & license key

Step 2: Installing CoverNews Pro

File Upload Size:
Be sure to check php upload_max_filesize and post_max_size is 32M or higher. If you are running shared web hosting you should contact your web hosting service provider to find more information about that. If you are running unmanaged dedicated server or VPS you should check your php.ini file. Alternatively you can edit .htaccess file in the root of your website and add the following values:
php_value post_max_size 32M
php_value upload_max_filesize 32M
Setting these values will ensure you wont get an error reporting that your upload and post memory limit is too low.
Alternatively, you can also upload theme file using FTP/SFTP file server tool or directly from the cPanel or file manager dashboard provided by you file hosting provider.
Choose the ZIP file you’ve downloaded & Click Install Now
Click on Activate to activate the theme
Step 3: Activating your license
