Those two topics tell you everything you need to know ahead of time. Use these two topics to decide if installing PageLines Framework is the right platform for you.

If yes, then proceed.
  • Back up your database.
  • Copy any custom CSS, functions, sections, etc into a text document.
  • Move all of your widgets to the "inactive" area (Appearance -> Widgets).
  • Follow

    to install PageLines Framework. You will activate PageLines Framework in this step.
  • Reestablish your Wordpress menus (Appearance -> Menus) and save.
  • Move all of your widgets back to the desired locations (Appearance -> Widgets).
  • Visit each tab of the PageLines menu and adjust the settings to your liking (don't forget to enter your account info too!).
  • If you plan on using a child theme, you can learn about that

    .
  • If your custom CSS, functions, sections, etc (from topic 2 above) are not listed, add them back in to the previous location (i.e. Custom Code -> Custom CSS --OR-- into your child theme).
That should be it! If I think of anything else, I'll edit this post. Apologies in advance if I have missed something or if something is incorrect.

Simple post! I do have a question - The instructions "Move all of your widgets to the "inactive" area (Appearance -> Widgets)" are not totally clear to me. Does that mean move your "Available" widgets to the "Inactive" section? And, also move those widgets on the right side to "Inactive"? Thx, Cadmin

Move your currently active widgets (in the sidebars) to inactive. This will prevent headaches later. :)

I've done all that, even deleted platformpro but when installed I get a blank white screen for my site. Unless something didn't get deleted.

Where did you install PageLines in your site? It should be located here: wp-content/themes/pagelines

Did you activate it via Dashboard > Appearance > Themes?

It's possible that the auto install wasn't complete.

the "These Instructions" link is kicking back a 404. I know its last min, but I am trying to upgrade my platform pro to framework before DMS release
