Switching from 7.0 to 7.1

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.thecalltoconserve.com

I'm trying to spruce up my site; after managing and creating so many sites for clients in 7.1, I feel like my site in 7.0 is so plain and, well, ugly haha. There are just not enough features in 7.0 for the aesthetic I'm looking for, but it doesn't seem like there are any good options for switching templates without having to uproot my site completely. I have a few pages that rank in the top 3 on Google, and I'm worried about losing that placement by completely redoing the platform. 

Has anyone switched from 7.0 to 7.1 successfully? Any tips? Thanks so much in advance!

7.1 looks very much like the Brine family in 7.0 There are 45 templates in that family, and you can switch to any of them. Swicthing to 7.1 is a bit more complicated.  Take a look at the templates in the Brine Family you may find one that really works well for you. If you still wish to change to 7.1 I have posted the help guide to do that.

Thanks Derrick! Do you know if Google rankings will carry over when the site is redone in 7.1? I'd assume not but am hoping for a miracle haha thanks again!
