H&D Upgrade process from version 1.x to 2.0

H&D version 2 was developed with a new framework and completely different from the previous version. Thus H&D version 2 is not compatible with previous versions and it does not support theme updates on the WordPress dashboard.

These are the steps you need to do to upgrade H&D version 1.x to version 2.0 (manually)

  1. Back up all of your H&D 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 H&D 2.0 themes to the following directory \wp-content\themes\
  3. Install and activate plugins for H&D 2.0.
  4. Import the Demo content
  5. Import QuadMenu Options from the .json file
  6. Import Essential Grid Skins.
  7. Fixing Footer by updating the Footer page.
