    I haven’t been able to find this exact matter discussed in the forum, so please excuse me if it has.

    I have a site using Executive 1.0 and I want to upgrade it to Executive 2.0.

    Do I just install the latter theme and it overwrites the theme with the same name?

    I know I will lose all customisation in the CSS and functions.php, but I’m wondering what happens to files in the theme’s images folder.

    You will need to uninstall the older theme – it won’t allow you to install another theme with the same name.

    Any files which are in the theme’s images folder (as distinct from the media library) will no longer be visible on your site. If you have updated files in the images folder, and you want to keep them, I would recommend adding them to the zip file of the updated theme before you install (or, you can FTP to your hosting site, and add them later.)
