Casey,

I am trying to update the Impacto theme on my existing site. I need to make it mobile friendly etc. How do I go in and update the theme? Thanks.

Have you made any substantial modifications/customizations to the CSS or PHP?

If not, you should be able to replace the theme and then update the theme settings from the Appearance menu.

This process would be:

1.) backup/download the existing "impacto" theme folder and then delete it.
2.) Next, upload the new theme according to the docs (upload impacto and impacto-child).
3.) Activate impacto child theme and configure the settings from the Appearance menu.

Thanks Casey. So I backed up everything on the site. I don't have any changes done to CSS or PHP as far as I remember. When I delete the theme file and install the Impacto file, will I lose all my settings to the footer, slider sizes etc.?

I really want to update it but don't want to mess anything up as I'm not a pro at this.
