UpdatesHow to Update Without Losing Data
Note: Updates can make some important changes to the form styles. After over-writing the plugin files of the new version with the old one (do not delete the formcraft dir or the old files; simple overwrite them), check all your forms. If the styles are off at some places, go to the form builder, remove, and re-add those fields.
Note: If you are updating from a previous version to 2.0+, plead read this.
