I’ve uploaded a special version of Weaver Xtreme 4 to make it easier to revert to V4.4.8 if you have issues with Weaver Xtreme 5.
This version is Versioned as 4.4.9, but is named “Weaver Xtreme 4”. This means that it will extract on to /themes/weaver-xtreme-4 instead of the normal /themes/weaver-xtreme.
Note that all your version 4.4.8 settings are not touched when converting to V5, and that V5 saves its settings to a different location. But this special V4.4.9 version will use all your existing V4.4.8 settings, but be hosted in the /weaver-xtreme-4 directory. This means you can easily switch back and forth from V4.4.9 and V5. There will NEVER be an updated Version 4, so you will never have it overwritten by WordPress updates. All updates to V5 will use the standard /weaver-xtreme directory.
IMPORTANT! While your Weaver Xtreme settings are preserved in this version, it turns out that there are some other settings that used a WP mechanism called theme_mods that are currently not preserved. This includes the Customizer Weaver interface level setting, as well as the menu assignments for your menus. The defined menus ARE preserved, but you will have to reassign the defined menus to the specific menus you used – Primary, Secondary, etc.
I hope to release a 22.214.171.124 soon that will copy the old Weaver Xtreme 4.4.8 theme_mod settings to Weaver Xtreme 4 theme_mods.
