<p>Here is a brief instruction on how to update a theme based on the Warp framework without uninstalling and reinstalling the theme.</p>
-<p>When you open the theme settings a notice notify you whenever a new version of your theme is available. Notifications are smart and won't bother you with any messages unless an update is available for your theme.</p>
+<p>You will receive a notification in the <em>Theme Settings</em> if a newer version of your Theme or Theme Framework is available so when you do see these Notifications, you should visit the Downloads section for your Theme and then Download the latest Theme Package. Notifications are smart and won't bother you with any messages unless an update is available for your theme.</p>
-<p>Usually after you download a theme it will be customized to meet the requirements of your website. In this process you will change images, add some HTML or do CSS modifications here and there. In your theme settings the file verification quickly shows you all the modified and missing files in your theme that differ from the version you got from our download section. Now you instantly know which files you have modified in your customization before you start updating your individual template with the new template version.</p>
+<p>Notifications will either be for the Theme Framework ( WARP ) eg: <em>New version available! Download Theme Framework X.X.XX</em> or for the Template files themselves eg: <em>New version available! Download Template X.X.X</em>. Note: Updating the Template Framework ( WARP ) will not result in your Template version from changing, the template and Framework have their own Versioning.</p>
