    Hi. I have a website template that when building I used the float.
    All CSS for this template was done using Float.

    If I want to build a new website using this CSS template made in Float, how should I do it?

    * Install pre-3.1 version, select Float, then upgrade to 3.1?

    Can I install these versions available on GitHub on my website?
    https://github.com/tomusborne/generatepress/releases

    Or do I have to use the version provided in the WordPress Themes Installer?

    Grateful!

    Hi there,

    Just to confirm, are you trying to convert an existing site that’s using float to flex structure?

    If so I’d recommend starting a staging site for your existing site first.

    Then switch the structure from Float to Flex in Customizer > General.

    Then you can publish the staging site once all the tweaks are completed.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂

    Do not.

    I created a website template using Float, and created all the css instructions in float.

    If I want to create a new site using the saved template and using all the original css, (which was built in float) how should I do it?

    You would need to manually change your CSS from float to flex.

    There isn’t an automatic way to convert your CSS.

    On my website that was created in version 2.4.2 there was the option to choose float and flexbox.
    After upgrading to 3.1 this option still exists. But on a site installed on 3.1 it disappeared.

    if I install version 2.4.2. configure the site in float, and then update, will it also keep the option to choose float or flexbox?

    Or is there another way to make this work?

    Why is the Float / Flexbox option displayed on one site and not on the other?

    But on a site installed on 3.1 it disappeared.

    New install defaults to Flexbox and there is no option to use float.

    My recommendation in this reply is the best way for conversion:
