What is BigCommerce's Node-sass Update Warning?

Some of our customers have received a node-sass update warning from BigCommerce concerning their active themes. We understand that receiving a message like this can be concerning, so we're here to provide some context and guidance on the necessary steps to update your theme.

The BigCommerce message states:

Action Required: Update your theme

Your storefront theme is using an outdated SCSS framework. You must update your theme before January 31, 2024 to avoid disruptions to your storefront. We have provided a draft updated theme for your consideration, please navigate to the channel manager to review and publish. For more information, please reference the article below.

What's Causing This Message?

We've been in contact with the Theme Team at BigCommerce. It seems that the message has been automatically deployed to stores based on snapshots of their theme settings from several months ago. This means that if you updated your theme recently, you still may see this error message in your control panel.

Our team did a thorough review of the updates we applied to custom themes in response to BigCommerce's node-sass update. From this review, we’re confident that these updates do indeed comply with the documentation provided by BigCommerce. This means the node-sass update was correctly implemented onto your theme, and your store should be functioning as intended.

Are Flair Themes Compatible With the Update?

All latest versions of Flair's themes have been designed to be entirely compatible with the new SCSS framework. If you are currently using an unmodified Flair theme, simply update your theme to the latest version provided by us.
