Grade Upgrade process from version 1.x to 2.0
Grade version 2 was developed with a new framework and completely different from the previous version. Thus Grade version 2 is not compatible with previous versions and it does not support theme updates on the WordPress dashboard. In this video, we will show you how the initial process for rebuilding a website using theme version 2.0.
These are the steps you need to do to upgrade Grade version 1.x to version 2.0 (manually)
- Back up all of your Grade 1.x sites so that if there is a failure in the upgrade process, your data is still safe. If something unexpected happens, the website can be restored. You can use additional plugins to make backups easier.
- Upgrade via FTP - Upload the Grade version 2.0 to the following directory \wp-content\themes\ (It is recommended that you delete the Grade version 1.x or rename it before uploading the Grade version 2.0).
- Reset the database.
- Activate Grade 2.0 and the plugins.
