    No, I get error 404 page not found

    I can’t get the link to work either.

    Just a note – you have a Posts widget in the top widget area. Unfortunately, you have a whole ton of posts listed, and for almost all monitors, the actual content of a given page does not show. It took me quite a few tries to figure out that there really was content, and not just that top widget area. You really need to show only a few blog post links – if you really want that at all. It is not overly helpful.

    Either of the links posted (leading to the same page) also returns a 404 error for me.  However, the page loaded fine for me about 8 or 9 hours ago so something has changed in the meantime.

    This is what my site looked like before 

    Now it’s http://experiencedmoms.com/ – I can’t figure out what I have to do next 🙁

    Another Post from me here – I’ve calmed down now cause I see that if I just go and switch my theme back to Weaver ii everything is just as I left it. And any other theme is fine too. But Weaver Xtreme is too complicated for me to get into – Why should it be so different than switching to any other theme? I’ll have to resize my screens, put in all the colors again? Or did I miss something in the conversion?

    It is no different than switching to any other theme. If you switch to any other theme, you loose all your design.

    Have you followed the whole conversion process explained in the link I gave you?

    http://forum.weavertheme.com/discussion/11303/converting-a-weaver-ii-pro-or-aspen-site-to-weaver-xtreme

    Because if you did, there should be a minimal amount of things to correct.

    And yes, as explained in the conversion procedure at the link above, you can switch to the old weaver at any time , but up to a certain point in the conversion.

    If you want to take your time with this conversion, and as mentioned in the tutorial, create a clone of your site in a sub folder, and experiment with the conversion.

    If you don’t have the courage, you can just stay as is and wait for weaver ii to become incompatible with WordPress which should not be any time soon (although there is way to predict that with certainty 🙂 )

    If you don’t have the courage, you can just stay as is and wait for weaver ii to become incompatible with WordPress” – Yeah I got you – I switched didn’t I? My Blog POsts page which brought me here to begin with actually now has the title of the posts over the image which I couldn’t get before – SO that’s one point for xtreme. I even managed to find how to take off date from each image/post link there. So I’m willing to go on.


    You see my site now – http://experiencedmoms.com/  Did I forget to do something in the conversion?


    The width of the main section isn’t wide like I had it. Was the conversion supposed to pick up my changes or do I have to do that myself? Where? Same question about all the colors that my site had.

    I’ll get there….

    All your styling settings should have converted.

    Did you just activate Xtreme, or did you follow ALL the steps in the conversion tutorial I linked to ?

    There are many steps in the conversion procedure, so it is hard to tell if you have missed any step in the conversion process.

    In particular, did you first download all you weaver II settings (w2b file) and then in part2) of the tutorial, did you run the conversion on it, then download the new setting file for Xtreme (wxb file) , then follow part3) to upload these converted settings in Xtreme?

    I thought I followed the instructions but it’s very possible that I wasn’t exact. Can I Start over?

    May be print the instructions, so you can cross them over as you proceed

    OK – I think it will be easier to follow the second time now that I understand where I’m going. I deactivated all the plugins and I’m back in weave ii.

    Much better now – Just a few things

    1- the thing that got messed up the first time (as I said, it makes more sense second time) 
    “• In Appearance > Theme Options > Main Options > Save/Restore
    > Upload settings from file saved on your computer, Browse to the
    converted Xtreme setting file you downloaded previously after
    conversion, and click “Upload Theme backup””   – What is Appearance . theme Options ? I looked at Appearance . themes and then was lost – It was obvious to me the second time but I must have just skipped it the first time – also, you should say the name of the file to load then
    2 – My widget for the right sidebar which are still in primary sidebar where I had them before appear on the left under my posts. I guess it’s trying for the left sidebar which I don’t have. I want it back in the right sidebar (I don’t remember how I got that to work last time)
    3-  Next problem for different day is the featured image – but overall it’s going to be OK

    1- sorry, the syntax was changed since I made the tutorial, is is now called Appearance > Weaver Xtreme admin
    I will update the tutorial, thanks for the heads up
    The name of the file I cant put as it depends what you named it when you downloaded it

    2- The sidebar is pushed under because of some Custom CSS rule you had which are causing problem. You had margins added with custom CSS. In Xtreme the margins are setup in the options, so they can be made responsive.
    The margin rules property to removes are in yellow below. I suspect the rule itself is in Main options > FOnts & Custom Custom CSS rule box
    #content {border:1px solid #C3D4E6;padding-left:10px !important; padding-right:10px !important;margin-left:10px !important; margin-right:10px !important;}
    the Margin can then be activated with the theme option in Main options > Sidebar & layout > Primary widget area > Add side margin
    The whole rule can probably be removed actually as there are options for the other properties too (border and padding)  in Main options > content areas.
    This brings up the fact that the final clean up and optimization would be to go through all your old custom css rules, and check if they are still needed, or if there are new theme options that would do the job without them.

    I noticed some of your pages use divs with the 2 column class from weaver II.
    These are different in Xtreme, so you will need to edit that content. Two main differences, the class are different, and the columns divs must be inside a div container.
    Below is a tutorial that explains how to use these.
    By the way, below is the index to the Xtreme tutorials
