Please keep in mind that if you wanna use the new version, you need to update all of the MusexPress widgets in your Muse project (to the new version) to be sure that everything will work correctly on your site.
Before proceeding to update, we recommend backing up your contents to ensure you will always have a copy of your files in the event of a lost. It’s very easy and takes almost no time. Just go to the admin panel and click on the Tools menu. Select “export” to move all the files to a safe storage.
Once the backup is done, you can start the update process. So open your FTP Client and connect to your server. Select all the files in the root of your WordPress installation except the wp-config.php file and the “wp-content” folder and delete them.
When you jump back to the admin panel, WordPress shows a notice asking for database update. You can do it in just one click on the Run Updater button inside.
Next step is going to WordPress.org and downloading the latest WordPress release. So, click on the “download” button and unzip the file. Select all the files in the WordPress folder, copy and paste them on your server (in the same path you deleted the files before). Once the upload is completed, just open your browser and go to the WordPress admin panel (e.g. www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin).
Please note that if you’ve already installed Woocommerce, you need to delete it before updating MusexPress. Go to the Plugins section and deactivate and then delete Woocommerce. Then click on the “Add New” button and search for latest WooCommerce version. Click on “install” and then activate the plugin. Maybe WooCommerce shows a notice asking for database update. You can do it in just one click on the Run Updater button inside. After the database update is complete, you can update the MusexPress plugin. Jump back to the Plugins page and update the MusexPress plugin.
After the database update is complete, you can update the MusexPress plugin. Jump back to the Plugins page and update the MusexPress plugin.
Be sure to update your theme with the new MusexPress widgets version to get everything working correctly. Go to the “File” Menu and click on “Upload to FTP Host”. Insert your FTP credentials and continue. In the site URL section, enter the URL of your website (the same URL of your WordPress installation). Note that in the “Folder on server” section you must enter the same path as your WordPress installation plus the “ /mxp_theme” extention (e.g. public_html/mxp_theme). This step is necessary to have your MusexPress working properly so pay attention to insert the correct path. In the Upload section select all the files if you’re uploading them for the first time, then click OK. Muse will generate an alert but you can ignore it, just click on the “Ignore” button.
After the upload, go to your admin panel, click on MusexPress- Pages converter. Select all the pages and click on the convert button.
Once the conversion process is completed, you’re redirected to the Page settings menu. Here you need to set important pages of your site:
The Post List Page (the page where you have inserted the Blog Post Grid)
The Single Post Page (the page where you have inserted the single post page widgets)
The Error Page: (the page you have created in Muse for the 404 Not found error)
The Shop Page: (the page where you have inserted the Shop Grid widget)
The Single Product Page: (the page where you have inserted the single product page widgets)
