You can find the changelog about new features and fixes in the following address: Changelog 

Important Notice Before Updating

Please be aware that updating Listivo will remove the following directories:

- /wp-content/themes/listivo/

- /wp-content/plugins/listivo-code/

In their place, a new version of the theme will be installed. You can be confident that all existing pages, listings, and theme settings will continue to work properly after the update.

Maintaining File Customizations

However, if you are a developer and have made customizations to files in the /wp-content/themes/listivo/ or /wp-content/plugins/listivo-core/ folders, these customizations will be lost during the update process.

To prevent losing your customizations, ensure that all customized files, such as PHP files, are stored in a Child Theme. By doing this, you can maintain your modifications while benefiting from the latest version of Listivo. If you're unfamiliar with Child Themes, we recommend reading this helpful article for guidance: How to use Child Theme? How to change files (php / css / js) and keep theme future update compatibility?
