Q : I have built a WordPress site with the Hueman WordPress theme and am happy with it. If I switch to the premium version, do I have to start all over again?

Hueman and Hueman Pro share the same core code and are 100% compatible. Almost all of the customizations made to the free version will be kept if you switch to the pro version.

The Hueman free theme options, and the Hueman Addons plugin options are shared by Hueman Pro, the only exceptions are menus and widgets that might need to be reassigned to the correct locations. Your previously created menus and widgets won't be deleted.

WordPress, by itself, treats menus per theme (a menu set as Main in Hueman will not be set as Main in Twentyfifteen). The same thing happens with the widgets. That's because widget area generally differ from theme to theme.

About the widgets, if you set widgets for Hueman and then switch to Hueman-Pro the widgets sill appear in the right sidebars because WordPress recognizes, even if their not the same theme, that the sidebars are the same.

Q : What are the steps to follow when upgrading from free to pro ?

A : Once you've downloaded the zip file of your pro theme, install it manually from your WordPress admin, in  Appearance Themes. If you've never done it before, it's really simple. Read the quick guide on how to install a WordPress theme manually.

Then you just need to activate the Hueman Pro theme. It will use all the options that you had previously set in the free version. Head over to the  Getting Started Guide for Hueman Pro for more details about activation.
