    Hi,
    What is the best way to upgrade the theme without loosing work? After I upgraded from v1 to v2, none of my custom sidebars show. The sidebars are still present, but they don’t show up on any of the pages. I’m at a loss.

    I see that my sidebar widgets are now blank after the upgrade. Is there no way to save all of the widget configuration when doing an upgrade? I have many sidebars and did a lot of customization to them. Do I need to redo all of this work?

    aren’t the previous widgets just moved as inactive on the Widgets page?

    I ‘m considering upgrading too amd I’m wondering what I need to note before the change
    over, just in case many of my settings get wiped.

    Do most of the settings I’ve changed transfer over with the upgrade or not?
    Is there a way to back them up & reinstall with V2 or do the settings need to
    be re-done again manually.

    Thanks Roman, being pre-warned really helps.

    if you are afraid of any future issues, you can use the build in back up, also backup your current theme version as well your database backup. the upgrade process keep all current settings.
