How will this affect my current installation?
This is important so read carefully!
If you are using the original OptimizePress Theme for your blog and landing pages then you MUST install the OptimizePress Plugin before you install and activate the new OptimizePress SmartTheme.
The SmartTheme needs your OptimizePress license key to work and it pulls this from the plugin.
If you deactivate the OptmizePress Theme before you install the plugin, your LiveEditor pages will not be lost, they just won’t work until you install the Plugin.
Customers Using The OptimizePress Theme
Our recommended steps:
- Install and activate the OptimizePress Plugin (check that the license key exists).
- Install and activate the SmartTheme
Customers Already Using The OptimizePress Plugin
- Install the SmartTheme as you would any WordPress Theme – remember you can only run one theme on your site so the SmartTheme will take over the styling of normal pages & posts from your existing theme. LiveEditor pages will be unaffected.
What will happen to the original OptimizePress Theme?
It will be discontinued and will not be available for download in the future. All LiveEditor functionality will be available in the OptimizePress plugin which can be used with the SmartTheme.
Why is this different from the current OptimizePress Theme?
- It’s built with all the latest SEO schema markup.
- It’s a framework that allows us to add future themes.
- This is the first of a range of themes in our OptimizePress suite.
- It includes cleaner code to increase page loading speed.
We modelled the new SmartTheme from some other inspirational sites and also looked at ways you can improve your blog by avoiding these key mistakes.
What About SEO?
We have designed the SmartTheme to be compatible with all the latest Google requirements. It has also been designed not to conflict with any other SEO plugins.
If you want more SEO options on your site, we recommend you use third-party plugins like:
