Recommended Posts

Hi everybody.

I'm considering to upgrade as in the topic title.

Currently I've no need to upgrade really...my demo site is going fine...but each new release would take some improvement or it may solve some security problem... so sooner or later I'll need to upgrade.

My hosting provider is Hostgator.

Do you have some suggestion or feedback about upgrading?...it's worth?...how 2.3.5 will work with wp 3.4.2?

Thank you

I would highly recommend it since there have been fixes and updates since version 2.1.6.

Catrina,

I did it the automatic upgrade by wp platform but it went bad. (the site showcases a lot of unexpected changes)

I needed to restore all...wp, pagelines and db (thanks God I had a full backup)

Now I only try to upgrade wordpress and plugins.

Back soon.

Done.

Now I have Pagelines 2.1.6 with WP 3.4.2 and it works as per normal.

Unfortunately version 2.1.6 and version 2.3.5 result so different that In my specific case it doesn't worth to upgrade as I would be obliged to rebuild the entire site.

You should update, but expect some CSS and other changes. You'll be able to fix anything easily.

Rob, I'm not a coder and the site has many customizations which took me a lot of time and tries so upgrading could not result a 'quick' task to my modest coding skills.

Now I'm thinking to build a new site that would be based on the latest PL version, even if the backward incompatibility could make unuseful some customizations I learned so far.

base theme, of course, exactly to prevent 'surprises' in case of future upgrades, but I have to say it seems I'm not the luckiest... :lol:

      Hi
      Exited about the new Platform 5, but just started building a site in DMS2 and want to upgrade it to Platform 5. In the Facebook User Group it was a post that had a few steps to do this, and one of them was to copy the content from DMS into Platform 5. My question is on how do I really copy the content so I can keep all the work I have done so far?
      Thanks and best regards,
      Carl

      Hi,
       
      I might be missing something very obvious, but how do I update my Pagelines DMS theme to DMS 2? When I go into my Wordpress 4.2.2 dashboard, no DMS updates are available, yet when I go into the theme preview, it says I have version 1.1.1. Aren't you on like v2.1 now or something?
       
      Thanks, Mark

      Hi there. 
      I'm a tad nervous regarding upgrading my whole site (www.ectopicbeats.dk) from Pagelines to DMS 2.

      Thank you

      I just updated to the later version of Pagelines & Wordpress 3.7.1 and it screwed up my website. In particular the Features panel now repeats down the page and after hours of working to resolve this my only solution is to turn off Features (which I've done on the Home Page but not the other pages).
       
      Additionally, my Fixed NavBar no longer shows the Sub Pages on my site to navigate to. I have also been working on this with no success. This is the second time upgrading to your newest version has created more work and hassles than providing any additional solutions.
