15 Feb, 2022
We apologize for this awkward situation with the latest MasterStudy Theme update. Hence we have recently released the hot-fix with the MasterStudy LMS plugin.
So for now, it is COMPLETELY SAFE to update the MasterStudy Theme to the 4.4.4 version. As a tip, we recommend you follow the basic instructions before updating. Those who have not updated within the first two hours after the update release, feel free to do it now without any problem.
On the contrary, if you have already updated the MasterStudy Theme and have gotten a fatal error on your website, please follow the steps below:
  1. 1.
    Download the masterstudy.zip archive on your Envato profile page.
  2. 2.
    Unzip the masterstudy.zip file which will give a Masterstudy folder. Make sure your unzipping software/tool does not create an extra directory with the same name nested into each other.
  3. 3.
    Retrieve your FTP login information from your hosting admin panel. Login to your FTP account via FTP software (as an example, FileZilla any other one) or File Manager tool in Cpanel to access your website folders.
  4. 4.
    Once you access the FTP account, navigate to the WordPress theme directory YOUR_HOSTING_ROOT/YOUR_SUBDIRECTORY/wp-content/themes and remove the masterstudy folder.
  5. 5.
    Upload the previously unzipped masterstudy folder into YOUR_HOSTING_ROOT/YOUR_SUBDIRECTORY/wp-content/themes directory.
If you have troubles or obstacles with the provided solution our support gives a high priority to your cases. And if your support policy is expired please no worries. We have prepared an express form to collect your data and fix the problem manually. In this case, please fill up all the required fields in this form.
Once again, our deepest apologies for the inconvenience. We assure to take steps to ensure that this kind of situation does not repeat anymore.
