I needed to upgrade to Advanced Custom Fields Pro. How do I go about updating the Edition theme to use the Pro version ACF?

Hi TJnTN,

It would be a more involved process as Edition was built with ACF. The biggest issue is some of the addons that Edition uses (for custom sidebars for instance) aren’t yet compatible with ACF Pro. Unfortunately, customizations go beyond the scope of the Support Policy. You’ll need to seek the help of a developer for assistance making this modification.

Also, did you know we have a dedicated support system? It’s the fastest way to get support.

Thanks for the info Andre! One other question while we are on this topic. When I disable ACF Lite Mode, the custom fields that the theme creates go missing. So for example where you choose a “Section” for a page does not show up any long when you are editing a page. When I disable Lite Mode to I have to do something else to keep that functionality?

Hi TJnTN,

I’m happy to help with this, however, it looks like your support has expired. Can you please renew your support license? You can do that from the item page: https://themeforest.net/item/edition-responsive-news-and-magazine-theme/7827441

Thanks!

Hi Andre,

I’m already using your Extranews theme and am seriously looking at upgrading to this, mainly as we now need to use Woo Commerce. Just have a few pre purchase questions if you don’t mind helping out. Nice theme by the way!

1. I am guessing the homepage can feature posts from different categories, in different sections? It looks like it already does but it’s hard to be sure. For eg you have the main grid, then another image slider grid with different posts. I’m guessing this can be repeated so we can effectively have different category posts in different areas of the homepage? It also sounds like we can have a different sidebar for each section of the homepage if we divide it up – is this right?

2. Can pages be featured on the homepage in the same way as above? Just wondering.

3. Does the theme have any forum integration? We are thinking of charging for access to post on a forum. Thought Woo could help with that.

4. Does theme have any MailChimp/newsletter sign up widget? Is there a list of widgets it comes with anywhere or just the ones we see on the theme sidebars?

5. Lastly do you know if this will be easy to upgrade to if we’re already using your Extranews theme? We’ve got a child theme in place there too. Ideally don’t want to have to comb through all posts/pages and re-design them. Perhaps we don’t have to?

Many thanks for your help :)

Thanks for sending! Regarding content, you will need to re-add your review information as this information is stored differently on Edition. Additionally, Edition uses the Themewich Shortcodes plugin:

https://bitbucket.org/themewich/themewich-shortcodes/downloads/

So you’ll also want to download and install this plugin, then substitute any theme shortcodes you’re using with these (i.e. column shortcodes for instance).

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks Andre :)

So to clarify: 1. We will need to re-edit/review every review page to format it for Edition. 2. We will need to re-edit every page that uses shortcodes too.

I was hoping I wouldn’t need to do this as I think we have over 500 pages but what the hell!

Thanks for your help and for what it’s worth I think it’s a good thing to have your own shortcodes plugin now. Saves us using other people’s and causing potential theme conflicts.

Hi Mdbond,

Unfortunately, that’s correct. Edition updated how it handles review data so it’s not compatible with the old review data in ExtraNews. Same goes for shortcodes as Edition now uses a plugin to handle this so changing themes is no longer an issue.

Hello,

I am considering purchasing your Edition theme, but noticed the last time it was updated was October 2016 (pre-Wordpress 4.7 and now 4.8).

I know every time Wordpress is updated it can affect the compatibility of a theme. Not sure if it effects the Edition theme, but will there be additional updates made to this theme?

Plus it’s nice to see enhancements made to themes going forward.

Thank you for your help,

Matt

Hi Matt!

WordPress 4.7 and 4.8 didn’t break any compatibility with Edition. We’re currently only pushing out maintenance and compatibility updates for the theme as it’s pretty feature-rich at the moment. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Andre

Hi! still no WPML support?

No official support, unfortunately, though I have several customers running WPML on edition without issues.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Andre

Did you one run into issue where you can’t setup the home page? I seeing big gap between slider and the menu bar. I can’t seem to figure out why. I didn’t export dummy xml file

Hi There!

Just responded to your email. Let me know if you didn’t get it!
