Is This Update Required?
Yes, every time Blesta release a new version updates are made to the template files to add new functionality, fix bugs etc. This update will update your Blesta Integration files with the new changes to add full support for the latest version of Blesta.
Will I Loose Customisations Made To The Template?
You shouldn't loose any custimizations as the WordPress Theme does not modify the Blesta files, instead all edits are made within the WordPress Theme files which are automatically applied to Blesta without editing required.

This will override the old Blesta Integration files used by your template with the latest version.
Ensure that your FTP client does not replace directories and instead adds/overrides the new files within the existing directory. We recommend FileZilla which is free and will work correctly out of the box.
If you have made customisations to any files contained in the ZIP we recommend comparing your version and the updated version so you can re-apply your customisations manually.
3. Re-Apply Header/Footer
The final step is to re-apply the header/footer of your WordPress Theme to your Blesta integration template. This is a quick and easy process. This step will also ensure that if any changes were made to your header/footer (e.g changes to the menu) since the last update, it will be matched exactly in Blesta.
