I have customized the theme a lot

Due to changes in folder structure of Magento 1.8 or 1.9 in comparison with Magento 1.7, the best way is to do manual upgrade and customization. Follow our Manual Upgrade Guide as below for details.

I did not customize anything

Simply download our themes with the updated versions for Magento 1.8 or 1.9 and install to your site. No manual upgrade is required.

Open your site root folder. Here come codes for specific files to replace for the Magento updated versions. If you can not find any named file as following, leave it and continue editing the others.
