    That did the trick. Just a couple more questions and I think I’ll be done.

    Is there a way in Xtreme to get the lines of text a little closer together in the main content areas? I believe it’s called line height.

    The old Weaver II site is still installed in the communiclips.com root directory called “communiclips” and the new Xtreme version is in a subdirectory called “communiclips2”. Do I delete all of the old Weaver II folders/files in “communiclips” and then use the migration plugin to move the new Xtreme folders/files from “communiclips2” into the “communiclips” directory? Or is there a better option? Is there a way to keep the Weaver II version available in case I need to check something out?

    The line height is set at 1.5 by default n the hole site.

    If you have the “Plus” plugin that is a setting you can change in main options > Fonts and custom.

    To change it on any specific area, just add a CSS rule like below to the theme Global Custom CSS Rule box with the selector of the area

    #content {line-height:1.2;}

    Or if you dont know the selector, add just the property like below to the area BG CSS+ box

    {line-height:1.2;}

    Let me check a few things for your other question

    You could easily point the site to the new subdirectory by editing the htaccess file, but that means old url to your site and referenced on search engines may become invalid.

    To swap both sites, the goal being to get the site that is under communiclips2 to actually move under communiclips (and vice versa) so that the full URL remains the same as before,  you may want to speak with your host provider to see what they recommend.

    Once the swap is done, you will be able to access the old site by just typing the full URL with the subdirectory. But you should disable search engine indexing in the Dashboard settings > reading

    I ended up using the Migration plugin to swap the two sites. Everything seems to be working well now. The old Weaver II site is now in the subdirectory which I will delete in a couple of weeks once I’m confident I don’t need to refer to it anymore.

    One thing I learned… it’s best to delete the W3 Total Cache plugin before migration then reinstall after the entire process is completed.

    What does “inherit” mean in the font pull-down menus of the Weaver Xtreme Options section?

    Inherit means it inherits the setting of the parent container.

    For example if you set a specific font on the wrapper and set the content are font to inherit, it gets the same

    Once I know everything in the new Xtreme site is working & I no longer need to go back to the Weaver II theme, is it OK to delete the following from the Xtreme site:

    Weaver II Theme & Weaver II Theme Extras Plugin (from cloned Weaver II site)
    Weaver II to Weaver Xtreme plugin
    Weaver Themes Shortcode Compatibility

    You can remove

    Weaver II Theme & Weaver II Theme Extras Plugin (from cloned Weaver II site)
    Weaver II to Weaver Xtreme plugin

    As for

    Weaver Themes Shortcode Compatibility

    It depends if your site uses weaver shortcodes. If it does, it depends if you have changed them to reflect the new syntax of Xtreme. If you have not, then you need to keep it so it makes the ongoing translation

    I’ve successfully converted two websites and am in the middle of a third. I tried to upload the .w2b settings file to the new Xtreme site using the Weaver II to Weaver Xtreme Converter and an error message in a red horizontal bar showed up at the top of the page with this text: Uploaded .w2t or .w2b file wrong format.

    I re-downloaded a .w2b settings file from the Weaver II site and deleted and re-installed the Converter plugin and am still getting the error message. And there is no conversion report. Any ideas?

    It is safe to also install Weaver II on the same site as the Weaver Xtreme theme.

    So, I would first try to install Weaver II on the new site, and switch to Weaver II, then try to load the .w2t or .w2b file from Weaver II. If that works, then I really don’t have much of an idea of what might be wrong. It has been a very very long time since there has been any work done on the converter at all, so it would be very difficult to try to find out what the problem might be.

    If I understand your last post correctly, you did have success converting two other websites using the same plan – loading a .w2t or .w2b file into the converter plugin running on the new sites. If that worked, I don’t really understand what the difference might be.

    I have been installing Xtreme on cloned sites. Right now, the cloned site I am working on still has Weaver II activated. As per the conversion step-by-step instructions at https://guide.weavertheme.com/converting-a-weaver-ii-pro-or-aspen-site-to-weaver-xtreme/ I have installed Weaver Xtreme but the instructions say not to activate Xtreme until after the converted settings have been uploaded. That’s what I did for the previous two successful Weaver II to Extreme conversions. Should I go ahead and activate Xtreme then try to upload the conversion file (w2b)?

    It should not make any difference, but you can try.

    The conversion plugin works separately from whatever theme is active. It just loads a WII setting file, and create a Weaver  Xtreme one.

    If the conversion plugin cannot read the WII setting file, something is either wrong in the setting file or in the plugin.

    May be the way you are downloading the WII setting file is somewhat corrupting it. Have you tried to do that from different browsers / computers

    I tried a different browser; no dice. But here’s what did work:

    On the cloned site which will eventually be my main site, I activated the Xtreme theme then activated Weaver II. Then I saved the settings out of Weaver II. This time the converter plugin worked fine. Then I activated Xtreme and uploaded the wxb file which loaded with no error message.

    In the two previous successful Weaver II to Xtreme conversions, I think I immediately activated Xtreme after installing it. Then realizing the instructions said I wasn’t supposed to activate Xtreme immediately upon installing it, I switched back to Weaver II. Turns out, it seems that activating Xtreme immediately after installing it then switching back to Weaver II was the correct order of instructions, at least for my sites, WordPress version, server PHP version, etc.

    Thanks for your continued patience regarding my conversion efforts. I have had some significant family health issues and deaths in the family so converting all six of my sites to Xtreme has not been a top priority. Until now. It has been quite an adventure to say the least!

    Everything has been going fine converting the last several days but ran into an image sizing problem on a page. Here’s the Weaver II version:

    http://gerlachproductions.com/wp/services/

    Here’s the Xtreme version:

    http://gerlachproductions.com/gpx/services/

    As you can see, the Xtreme images are too small. I created that table several years ago as per instructions from Scrambler. Here is a sample of the code from the page:

    <div class="mycont2">
    <div class="myimage2"><a href="http://communiclips.com/samples"><img src="http://gerlachproductions.com/gpx/wp-content/uploads/communiclips-small.jpg" alt="" width="125" height="76" /></a></div>
    <div class="mytext2"><b>Web Videos</b>
    CommuniClips are short, affordable web videos that create PR buzz. CommuniClips can promote your products, sell your services & connect with your customers. <a href="http://communiclips.com/samples">View Samples</a></div>
    </div>

    Here are the Custom CSS Rules:

    #content {line-height:1.2;}
    .mybox1 {background-color:#E3E3CC;border-radius:10px;-moz-border-radius:10px;-webkit-border-radius:0px;margin:10px 5px;padding:10px;}
    #content .mybox1 p {margin-bottom:.6em;}
    div.titlebelowthumb {font-size:112%;}
    #primary-widget-area p {margin-bottom:.6em;}
    #secondary-widget-area p {margin-bottom:.6em;}
    #secondary-widget-area p {margin-bottom:.6em;}
    .wvrx-menu-container ul ul {width:500px;}
    .mycont {border:2px solid #000099;overflow:hidden;clear:both;margin-top:-2px;}
    .myimage {width:28%;float:left;padding:1%;}
    .mytext {float:left;width:68%;box-sizing:border-box;-moz-box-sizing:border-box;-webkit-box-sizing:border-box;min-height:172px;border-left:2px solid #000099;padding:1%;}
    @media only screen and (max-width: 580px) {
    .myimage, .mytext {width:100%;}
    .mytext {border-left:none;border-top:-1px solid black;min-height:0px;}
    }
    .mycont2 {background-color:#white}
    .mycont2 {border:2px solid #000099;overflow:hidden;clear:both;margin-top:-2px;}
    .myimage2 {width:14%;float:left;padding:1%;}
    .mytext2 {float:left;width:82%;box-sizing:border-box;-moz-box-sizing:border-box;-webkit-box-sizing:border-box;min-height:100px;border-left:2px solid #000099;padding:1%;}
    @media only screen and (max-width: 580px) {
    .myimage2, .mytext2 {width:100%;}
    .mytext2 {border-left:none;border-top:-1px solid black;min-height:0px;}
    }
    @media only screen and (max-width:640px) {
    #wrapper {padding:10px;}
    }
    #content .wp-caption img {max-width:100%;}
    #content .wp-caption {max-width:45%;}

    The page code and CSS rules seem to have copied over from Weaver II to Xtreme OK but the images are too small.

    There is a CSS+ rule doing that (below)

    .container img, .colophon img {max-width:45%}

    Check the CSS+ boxes in the content area > Image settings

    Yep. Found it. That rule is not on the Weaver II site. I have no idea how it got put on the Xtreme site. Weird.
