Support » Theme: Virtue » Question about moving from Virtue demo to Ascend premium

  • Hi there,

    I am interested to upgrade to Ascend premium theme. Currently I am on Virtue free, and was wondering if it is somehow possible to automatically pass already existing content that I have on Virtue free (like posts and pages that I have made) to new Ascend premium?

    Another question I have is about Ascend premium theme. In the link I pasted here are several demos of that theme. I wonder if I can add extra rows of content to homepage? Like for example, in first demo (Adventure Awaits) there are four rows of content before the footer. Is it possible to add more rows to it?

    Thanks,
    Dario

  • Hello,

    Changing themes will require you restyle a lot of your site, but you wont lose any of your post or page content. it will just look different and you’ll have to make adjustments to get things looking the way you want.

    As for the amount of rows, you can do this easily by using the Page Builder plugin.

    Ascend Premium has lots of built in widgets that allow you to setup the homepage basically however you want.

    If you’re unfamiliar with page builder, here is a nice introduction to the plugin:

    If you do choose to upgrade, you’ll also have access to our premium support, and we’ll do our best to help you getting your site working however you want.

    Hopefully this is helpful!

    Hi Kevin,

    Yeah it is helpful. I just watched the tutorial for page builder. I didn’t know page builder would work like that. Seems a bit complex but I guess with time it can be learned. Also good to hear you guys would help.

    So then there would be a Homepage as one of the pages that could be page built?

    Thanks,

    Yes, you would just need to set your homepage as a static page from Settings > Reading.

    Thanks Hannah.

    I have two more questions:

    Kevin said it’s possible to not lose posts and pages I already have on Virtue free theme. When I buy Ascend premium, I would have to upload it first. How can I do it? Can I also upload one of the demo version but without overriding existing posts and pages that I have on Virtue free theme?

    My second question is in regards to payment when buying Ascend Theme. Is it possible to be issued online receipt that would include ID number of my bussiness and the name of my company? I ask that in order to know if i can pay with the company’s credit card.

    Cheers,
    Dario

    I just tested the process on my site and it’s pretty straight forward. Firstly, you should backup your site at its current state, just incase you find the changes aren’t to your liking.

    I then downloaded the new theme from kadencethemes.com, then installed and activated it.

    Then, navigate to Appearance> Getting Started, and input the API license key. After the license is active, go to Getting Started> Theme Recommended plugins, and install and activate the theme plugins.

    Then navigate to the demo content tab, and run the importer. Your old posts and pages will still exist, but they will appear differently, so you’ll have to make some changes to how thing look. It may require a decent amount of work to get things right, but it really depends on your needs.

    As for the payment options, I’ll send this thread onto the theme developer so he can provide feedback on that.

    He’ll also be able to provide some more insight as to whether or not my suggestion for changing themes is best practice, so I’d wait for his input before starting the process.

    Hey,
    Due to wordpress.org rules, these questions are supposed to be asked here: https://www.kadencethemes.com/contact-us/

    Because these are presell/support questions about a premium theme.

    So I have to ask that any follow up happen there or on the premium support forms.

    But to answer quickly you can download an invoice for your purchase right after the purchase. Can include vat ID and company name.

    Thanks for the quick reply Kevin and Ben.
