Resolved What Is The Difference Between Iblog And Pagelines (And A Few Other Questions)


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi,

I'm new to this (i had someone working on the site, but now doing it myself).

I was wondering if anyone could either answer, or point me in the right direction (I haven't had to much luck searching the forums)

I'm using iblog 4.2.4

My questions are

1) Is iBlog a totally separate theme to Pagelines?

Or does Pagelines work like the framework, with the theme sitting on top?

(like the genesis framework on the studiopress sites)

2) If so, is pagelines automatically installed with iblog, or how does it work?

(Is there any documentation I can read)

3) I see iblog5 is out, how would I upgrade and would this be free?

4) Also, if Pagelines is the framework, how would I upgrade this?

5) Are there any 'getting started docs' or anything like that for both iblog and pagelines

Any answers would be much appreciated, I'm not that savvy and trying to find some bearings

(I apologise if there's already a thread of docs that I haven't found yet)

Thanks

1) IBlog 4 was a standalone theme, which predates the Pagelines Framework. This theme is now considered a legacy theme and the latest edition, IBlog Pro 5, is a child theme for the Pagelines Framework.

2) The Pagelines Framework is the main theme, you'd need to purchase that first, IBlog Pro 5 would then need to be purchased as a child theme for the Pagelines Framework.

3) To upgrade please contact hello@pagelines.com and we'll go through the process with you.

4) Same as above

5) The Pagelines docs can be found here http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Main_Page

Thanks James,

That clears up a lot

Do you know if there's any discount upgrading from iblog 4 to 5 (and pagelines)

Thanks
