How to activate the premium version of Hestia
This guide will explain how to activate Hestia Pro without losing the work done with the free version of Hestia. The same steps work even if you didn't use Hestia free before.
Download the theme file
The theme file can be downloaded from your ThemeIsle account, it's called hestia-pro.zip.
Install it as a new theme
Install it as a new theme by uploading the zip file in Dashboard > Appearance > Themes > Add new, upload file. When it's ready, activate the new theme.
📝 Note: The PRO version of Hestia acts like a separate theme. If you want to migrate the settings from Hestia Free to Pro, keep the free version in the themes portfolio too.
