I am considering upgrading/switching my site over to a new Kriesi theme. I am currently using the abundance theme which I do love but want to migrate over to a them that is responsive. My question is would it be a smooth transition if I was to install and activate the replete theme?
Thanks in advance
1) Yes, you can switch from Abundance to Replete without loosing all your settings/products. However you need to configure the theme options (and dynamic templates) again because Replete introduces new dynamic elements and options and it won’t “import” the options from Abundance (to avoid conflicts, leftovers, etc.).
2) Maybe you need to change/adjust the product description of your products because Replete uses the “Product Excerpt” text field for the product description whereas Abundance uses the default post content field. Both themes use the default product image gallery.
3) No, your page rank will not be affected. Maybe for a short time (when Google crawls the “new” page content) you’ll notice that your page is missing from the search results page but after some hours/days you’ll be listed again and the new theme will not have a negative impact on your rank.
