switch template from Flatiron (7.0) to Bergen (7.1)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Site URL: http://www.vikasdutt.com

Hi,

My website is currently on Flatiron template and I have 2 issues with my current site.

  • The mobile link for navigation appears as "Menu" and I am looking for the three horizontal bars style.
  • I am looking for multiple level of navigation. I am not finding good enough options within this template for same.

Most of my needs are getting fulfilled by Bergen. However, I am unable to find this template within my existing website to make the switch. I am assuming it is because of 7.0 vs 7.1? My website has been around for many years and I have put in quite a bit of effort around SEO etc. Is there a way to switch templates? or address the 2 issues mentioned above?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Regards,

Deepti

There is no built in option to switch templates from 7.0 to 7.1 due to the fact they are built on very different design platforms. The way you would do it is to start a new trial with your 7.1 design choice, build your site, and when ready, activate it and then transfer your domain using SS's domain transfer feature in the new site. Then once it works, and checked out,  cancel your old site and receive an immediate credit, right then, for any time left with that site.

Many thanks for your prompt reply. Happy to know that SS will credit the money. Annual renewal for my current site happened a few weeks ago.

As there isn’t currently a migration path from 7.0 to 7.1, you may want to consider switching to one of the Brine family family of 7.0 templates, as these are newer and are the most flexible templates available - much more flexible than 7.1. Switching to another 7.0 template preserves all pages and content, except some template-specific content. To see the 40+ Brine templates, take a look in the 7.0 Template Store.
