I have been told I should always run the Child theme for sites, not the parent theme, to avoid upgrade issues on WordPress. Is this true? I have tried to do that, however, When I attempt to migrate to the Child theme, everything gets messed up and doesn’t translate properly.
Could you help guide me?August 9, 2018 at 10:59 pm #10078
I suggest you use the child-theme.
Creating a child theme when performing adjustments to your theme’s code can save you a lot of future headaches. Child themes allow you to make changes without affecting the original theme’s code, which makes it easy to update your parent theme without erasing your changes. By creating a child theme, you create a separate set of files that you can use to customize the theme without affecting the original theme at all. Not only does this make updating easier, it also makes sure that you will never ruin your original theme as you are never actually modifying the files. You can always turn off your child theme and fall back on the original.
If you will need to create the child-theme and migrate your theme with all settings you can follow the steps from THIS post.

Thank you for clarifying. However, I already have the AgamaPro Child Theme (it came with my purchase)… but I encounter the same problem I had when migrating from free to pro– it completely changes everything from how it looked.
I had this problem when migrating from free to pro, as I said. A Theme Vision rep took my WP credentials and did the migration for me. Now I am having the same issue with migrating to the Child theme (which is what I thought he would have done from the start?)… it looks nothing like the original AgamaPro.
Is it possible to give credentials and have someone migrate it to the Child Theme? I can’t figure out how to maintain the look that it has (it’s not even customizations, it’s just the original look that completely changes).
I appreciate your help!August 10, 2018 at 8:14 am #10083
No problem, If you give me your Credentials and the address to the website in the private reply, I’ll migrate your theme to the Child theme with all the customizations you have.

Hello , ProtektOnline!
I think I managed to do what you wanted.
So, I did the following:
1.)I made and activated the Agama-Pro Child theme.
2.)I left your Frontpage as it was, with the existing original Front Page boxes. (It’s not a static page, so it can not be modified anyway).
3.)Using the WP Bakery page builder plugin I made Custom Boxes and saved them as a template. Then I put them on the pages, as you wanted.
Now you can edit each page and add boxes per your wish, or move it to the place where it suits you. Please see the videos below:
I hope everything is fine right now.
Thank you for your patience.
