Support » Theme: Twenty Seventeen » How to easily move from Twenty Fifteen to Seventeen?

  • Hi
    We are currently using twenty seventeen theme and we made a lot of configurations, editing, changes etc. on our child theme of twenty fifteen.

    But I would like to move into seventeen, how to easily do that without broke any modifications?

  • Hi,
    If the changes are done in a child theme, then you can make the child theme’s parent as twenty seventeen and check. This does not assure a 100% smooth transition. It would really depend on what changes you have done. But, this would be the way ahead. If it fails, you can always revert easily.
    Btw, I hope I don’t have to tell you to backup everything before starting the move.

    A child theme for Twenty Fifteen won’t work correctly with Twenty Seventeen as the themes are completely different structurally.

    I would recommend you redo your modifications piece by piece into a new Twenty Seventeen child theme instead. It’ll take some work but it’s really the only way to make sure everything is moved over and works correctly.
