I just receive notification from Woocommerce that there are issues between my Cobalt Theme and some Woocommerce Template files. It doesn’t look like there’s an upgrade at this point for my theme, so can you please help me sort this out.
These are the messages from Woocommerce:
Your theme (Cobalt) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files. These files may need updating to ensure they are compatible with the current version of WooCommerce. Suggestions to fix this:
Update your theme to the latest version. If no update is available contact your theme author asking about compatibility with the current WooCommerce version.
If you copied over a template file to change something, then you will need to copy the new version of the template and apply your changes again.
boldgrid-cobalt/woocommerce/single-product/add-to-cart/grouped.php version 4.0.0 is out of date. The core version is 4.8.0May 13, 2021 at 2:40 pm #37806
Thanks for the heads-up, and thanks for using the Cobalt WordPress Theme.
I’ve notified the theme developers about the issue, and we’ll release an update for Cobalt soon. The developers didn’t find any compatibility issues with the outdated file, so this issue shouldn’t have any effect on your website in the meantime.May 13, 2021 at 6:01 pm #37809Heather SpencerGuest
Thanks Jesse, I’ll keep my eye open for the update.May 13, 2021 at 6:02 pm #37814
I just heard back from the development team, and they expect the release to come out sometime tomorrow morning. I’ll update the thread here as well, once it’s available for you.May 14, 2021 at 11:47 am #37866
You should see the update for Cobalt available now in your Dashboard, thanks again for letting us know!May 14, 2021 at 12:57 pm #37882Heather SpencerGuest
Thanks Jesse !
Just want to clarify: I’ve added quite a bit of PHP code to the theme. When I update, I’ll need to oput that all back in, right ?
Should I expect any problems with that ?

You’re right that if you update the theme, your modifications will be lost.
The ideal way to handle this is to actually create a child theme for Cobalt. When you need to customize a file, you copy it from the parent theme into your child theme (with the same directory structure) and make modifications there. That way, when the theme updates, the files you customize stay like they are, and the parent gets the new updates.
As an aside, I moved your reply to our other conversation to your other topic thread here.
