  1. This update is just giving me more reasons to join GeneratePress Premium community, especially the page header, I think I would love it.

    Thank you Tom.

  2. Awesome work, Tom!

    On one hand I love that the existing page headers aren’t touched after the upgrade — but, what if we want to convert pages over to the new format…How would we do that? Are we stuck with the “old” way for existing pages and then must use the “new” way on new pages that are added? I don’t see a page header dropdown on my existing pages.

    • You can simply create a new Page Header for that page, then remove the settings from the on-page meta box. Once it senses that there’s no settings in the meta box, it will display the dropdown instead.

      Glad you like it!

  3. These are some pretty awesome updates. I cant see why I would ever need to use any other theme again. Nice job, well done Tom!

  4. Very much a newbie here. Got GeneratePress, then decided to purchase the Premium, and I cannot get it to install. After I upload zip, then hit install, it sends me to my website to a message that says “Oops, that cannot be found.” I did the steps in the video, but not sure where that problem lies. I haven’t been able to find anyone else with the same problem– any ideas? Thanks.

    • Hmm, that’s a new one. It might be worth contacting your hosting company to make sure there’s nothing server related going on. Just explain that you’re unable to upload a plugin .zip file without receiving that error message. Seems like a permalink issue.

      Let me know πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks, Tom! I wasn’t sure which direction to go, and my hosting company was able to help. Looking forward to working with my new gp premium!

  6. Just a heads up:

    In migration.php

    $id = strtolower( str_replace( ‘ ‘, ‘_’, $generate_settings[ $setting ] ) );

    if ( array_key_exists( $id, $select_fonts ) || in_array( $id, generate_typography_default_fonts() ) ) {

    I think you want:

    $id = strtolower( str_replace( ‘ ‘, ‘_’, $generate_settings[ $setting ] ) );

    if ( array_key_exists( $id, $select_fonts ) || in_array( $generate_settings[ $setting ], generate_typography_default_fonts() ) ) {

    Love the update by the way!
