Hi Mirella, the best option for you would be as follow.

1) Download version 4.5.1 or even better, download version 4.5.3. You can find the latest version in the following URL
2) Create a back up of your site, this is just for precaution just in case something goes wrong. Like they say, it is better to be safe than sorry :D
3) Export your suffusion settings, you can read the following documentation ... import.php to help you.
4) Delete suffusion theme and upload the latest version from step 1) above. The following documentation ... -theme.php can help you understand how to install a theme.
5) Import the suffusion settings you exported in step 3) above.
5) Check to make sure all your settings are correct.
6) If all the above is correct, then you should have your site with the latest version of Suffusion.

Let us know if you need more help.

Kind regards

For safety, do all the steps enumerated by Manuel in his post.

You can also update the theme by ftp.

Download the theme, unpack the zip on your computer, delete 'suffusion' subfolder by ftp from 'wp-content/themes/' folder, then upload instead 'suffusion' folder unzipped at the beginning.
That's all, the settings of Suffusion are already saved in the database, so, by deleting the theme by ftp you don't lose your actual settings.

Thank you. I haven't updated it yet. I'm afraid to make a mistake.
I read through all the explanations on how to export settings and install new theme, etc.

Is there any chance I could mess up?

Also, should I download version 4.5.4. instead of version 4.5.3.?

Kind regards,

4.54 is the latest and is the one you should use.

Make sure you have a full backup of your site just in case, that includes the full database as well as all the files and folders.
