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

A : Customizr and Customizr 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 : skins, fonts, sliders, layouts, custom css, ...

Customizr free options are shared by Customizr Pro, the only exceptions for now are :

  1. the featured pages on front page that you’ll need to select again in the Appearance > customize > featured pages
  2. the main menu that you might re-assign to the main location in Appearance > Menus
  3. The widgets

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

About the widgets, if you set widgets for Customizr and then switch to Customizr-Pro the widgets sill appear in the right sidebars 'cause 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 Customizr Pro theme. It will use all the options that you had previously set in the free version.
