Adapt Existing Content
If you are changing theme from another one and have plenty of existing content, menus and widgets on the website already, you need to do the following after having activated the new theme:
- Go to Appearance > Menus and add the menu areas back to where you want them. The menus will be hidden until you add links to them. This way you can choose how many menu areas to show on the website.
- Go to Appearance > Widgets and add the widgets back to your sidebars, or use some of the new custom widgets to make the site look like the demo site.
- Install the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin and activate it. Then go to Tools > Regenerate Thumbnails and run it once. This will crop existing thumbnails to the new sizes used in this theme.
- If you have not used the Featured Image feature in your other theme, you can use the Easy Add Thumbnail plugin to automatically set featured images for old articles.
