Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will I lose any functionality by changing one theme to another?
A: No, all the Themes there are available offer the same exact functionality. A difference between one theme to another is simply cosmetic and would be limited to the homepage design, what modules are being called on the homepage, the color sets of the website, etc. The website will also still have all the post types available.
Q: Will I lose any data by changing one theme to another?
A: No, changing a theme would not have any effect on the data of the website.
Q: Will I be receiving any of the dummy data that is shown on the demo website when I change one theme to another?
A: No, there won't be any additional data added to the site when changing a theme. Our demo website is a presentation of what can be done with the website and there are differences between our demo websites and the themes we offer.
Important: The tool is only going to create a Backup of the Design Settings, to request a full website backup please contact our support staff.
