  • Thanks for asking, @and_or.

    We’ll monitor the install count of Atomic Blocks, but we haven’t set a deadline for migration at the moment.

    New features and improvements will be added to Genesis Blocks instead of Atomic Blocks, though, so it’s worth making plans to migrate to benefit from those.

    Hi Nick, thanks for answering. Can I assume this will be several months?

    Additional questions:

    • Have you tested the migration on a WordPress MU install?
    • Can Atomic & Genesis Block co-exist/be used on a MU install?

    Hi Nick, would it be possible to make a stick post here in support covering steps involved in migration?
    Whoops – it’s on the front page – sorry

    Several months sounds about right, @and_or. We don’t have immediate goals to remove Atomic Blocks. We recognise that multisite migrations can require more time and planning.

    We tested the migration on multisite and have notes for multisite admins here.

    Atomic Blocks and Genesis Blocks should not be network-activated together on a multisite install. Editors would see duplicate blocks in the block picker and duplicate block UI such as the Layouts button above the editor.

    If you need to support both plugins on multisite, you could individually activate either plugin (but not both) on subsites instead of network-activating them.

    @sokratesagogo Yes, we have a note on the plugin homepage as well as some detailed migration notes that we link to from the migration page in Genesis Blocks.

    There’s a video walkthrough in the migration notes and some screenshots and example code. But if you need anything more, let us know!

    TY Nick 🙂

    I wish I’d been here before I migrated my network website. What a blood bath. I just send an e-mail to our partners not to migrate. Most of them don’t have a multisite website. I am not sure if I should try out a single site migration. Maybe I’d better first have a look at alternatives.

    I’m sorry for the difficulties you experienced, @sjoechem.

    As long as you update any themes or plugins that include Atomic Blocks CSS/PHP as we describe in step two of the migration, you should not see any design changes, be it a multisite or single site.

    Please feel free to take up David’s offer to talk in your post in the StudioPress forums if you’d like to share further feedback with the StudioPress team.

    I was just angry Nick. It is not the most elegant transition, but I was able to clean up the damage. I never react like this. The one website that had to look good, didn’t. In the old days StudioPress never pulled of something as rude as this, but I should look at it as something good. I love change. The new owners should get the chance to learn as well. And if they don’t, I did. Can’t say I don’t appreciate all the work these fine people do. Can’t blame them for my RTFM problem.
