    Hi, So I uploaded one of InnovativeSEO's themes and once I activate the child theme I get this message, "Your theme (Flatsome Child Theme) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files. These files may need updating to ensure they are compatible with the current version of WooCommerce. You can see which files are affected from the system status page. If in doubt, check with the author of the theme." How do I fix this? I moved the /pluggins/templates to the child theme directory and made this a directory named /woocommerce/ just like codex website advised and it broke my theme...Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Go to WooCommerce- System Status. Scroll to bottom Templates and there it points to what needs the new files. You can or I do pull the single files from WC updated plugin and FTP it over the given string WC points to.

    Sorry, I rarely check my back BHW area.
    Buy InnovativeSEO's theme and hope they are updating fools. If you did buy it email them.
    I don't recommend what I said earlier if your not comfortable with FTP and WordPress files. I am and screw up all the time...

    Read change logs for WordPress, theme/s and plugins, a lot of the time the updates aren't panic situations. Highly recommend "Wordfence" plugin and read his email alerts, he stays on top of WP threats.
