• How hard is it to change my theme to the latest version of Astra?

  • Pam Richards: "If I want to change my current theme to the Astra 2.0 theme how hard would it be? Are there any special steps I must take?"


    Nexus Themes: There are a number of options.

    1. The content was created with what WordPress offers out of the box. Swapping themes does not have any effect.

    2. The content was created with a plugin / website builder tool (Elementor, Beaver Builder WPBakery etc. Changing themes does not impact the content, unless there's some sort of compatibility issue with your new theme and the plugin.

    3. Content was created with the theme soon not to be used anymore. Example of this would be no longer the Divi theme. When the new theme is activated, the content created with the old theme (Divi) is still there, but since the way it was created is (always) incompatible with your new theme, the new theme is unable to show it. It might seem you've "lost" content. Re-activating the old theme will let your content reappear. Exception to this rule is if the new theme is from the same theme supplier and has the same integrated website builder software (and runs the same version as the old theme).
