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)

  1. 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. 
  2. 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).
  3. Reset the database.
  4. Activate Grade 2.0 and the plugins.
  5. Import the Demo content
