installing latest version of DMS

Recommended Posts

I have backed everything u and exported my DMS config,

Once I install the latest version do I just import the .json to activate all my templates?

Nervous about updating as it's a large site due for launch this friday.

Hi there, that's correct. Once you have the new site setup with Wordpress and DMS installed simply install the json file via global options>import/export and the templates and settings will be installed.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks James,

What about "Standard Options" styling classes" on coloums, boxes and widgitizers?

Will I need to set all these again as I have quite a few throughout my site?

Will I need to reassign the template for each page again or once I install the .json will all pages revert to specific page templates?

When you install the .json file your site should look the same. You may want to import your pages via the Wordpress export/importer before installing the .json file.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Hi there, the wordpress export/importer is in the tools tab in the wp admin area.

 

All of your custom settings will be imported via the import json file, including any custom classes you've set and custom templates.

 

Widgets/plugins will need to be installed into the new site and moved into the correct position. If you have custom sidebars you'll need to install the custom sidebar plugin and then reposition your widgets to fit the previous layout.
