Hi guy’s, I need some help.
I’ve purchased Enfold with the plan of updating my current Avisio site to use this theme. Before switching over themes I need to make a few custom changes to Enfold but would like make sure that the changes I plan to make work with minimal disruptions to my live site. Ideally I would like to use my existing data and modify the Enfold theme before making the big switch over. What’s the best way of using both themes with the same content before going live to ensure of minimal disruption?
Enfold is a completely different theme compare to Avisio. The framework is different and it has become more complicated because of the Advance Layout Editor. You might need to recreate a lot of your content manually.
I appreciate the complexities of the Enfold theme and the level of work required to make such a change from Avisio hence my question. It would be ideal if I could keep Avisio live for my visitors but have Enfold in a separate development area looking at the existing content where I could make the required changes. Only once those changes have been made can I switch themes.
Any help and advice in to such a migration would be greatly appreciated.
You can keep the Avisio theme on your installation while you’re working on the Enfold migration. You can use this plugin to help you export the database on Enfold: WP MIGRATE DB
Please create a database and theme files backup before you try to do anything for security purposes.
