    Hello, I started using the Free Weblog theme a few days ago, and decided I need some of the features of WeblogPro to make it a better looking site. When I change my theme to WeblogPro will I have to reconfigure all of my custom settings or will the changes I already made transfer to WeblogPro?

    Also, I see there is a child theme. I’ve never used one. Can you share a good, easy to follow document, on how to install and use the child theme. I’ve been using WP for years and this remains a technical mystery to me.

    Thank you,
    Joan

    Hello Joan Friedlander,
    Thank you so much for the theme purchased and using our premium theme. while switching theme from free to pro, you need to set some section again on the premium theme as well because of lots of additional features on the premium theme. Child Theme are specially developer for the developer. If you are not familiar with child theme, it’s not necessary to activate the child theme. You can activate the parent theme only. Please have a look here for more details about the child theme and it’s importance. https://www.acmethemes.com/blog/2016/07/child-themes-and-its-importance/
    Let us know, if you have any further query.

    Regards

    Greetings, thank you for your prompt reply.
    I realized, shortly after sending my question, that the answer was probably just what you wrote. I have to do reconfigure settings whenever I install a new theme, so it makes sense it would be the same here.

    Thank you for the link to the article, and also for letting me know that a child theme isn’t critical, especially since I’m not a developer.

    Regards,
    Joan

    Hi,
    I switched to Weblog 2 days ago and just bought the Weblog pro today. How do I reconfigure settings so I can benefit from this new theme.

    Hello ralmac,
    Thank you so much for using our theme WeblogPro. Free theme never directly upgrade to pro due to its additional features and functionality. So, first you need to add the theme manually, and after that, you can configure the some setting again. Your post, page and all other contents remain as it is, just may need to save the settings of theme Appearance > customize.
    If you faced any problem, let us know. Please follow the theme documentation for more details.

    Regards
