There are times that a theme is prompting for an upgrade to an accessible theme, but even after the upgrade, the theme still prompts that it needs to be updated. This rarely happens and usually occur to very old themes. Upgrading a very old theme will require few additional steps.

Upgrade to an accessible theme

  • Go the Theme Editor

  • Select the Theme that you're having troubles upgrading, click the Edit button

  • Scroll down the sidebar to the bottom and expand Legacy Variables

  • Set Text backwards compatibility to False

  • Upgrade the theme and click Publish
