Moving from FLOTHEMES?

If you’re a current Flothemes user and you’re looking for the safest and most stylish alternative, read on….

We’ve put together the ultimate guide to moving from Flothemes to a safe and future-proof WordPress system, without losing your content or SEO settings.

What’s happening with Flothemes?

Flothemes closed down permanently in September 2023 and will be withdrawing support for all themes from the end of September 2024.

Firstly, don’t panic. This doesn’t mean that your site will disappear overnight, but over time, unsupported themes start to lose functionality and develop security bugs with each WordPress update. So now is the right time to be thinking about which WordPress theme to move to.

Obviously you’ve landed here at StyleCloud, which we feel is the most similar option on the market to Flothemes for photographers, but this isn’t a hard sell. You can follow the advice on this page to move to any WordPress themes.

What you need from your next website provider…

We realise that you are probably feeling wary about your next move. Totally understandable. We’re going to explain why the following three things are super important and what the best WordPress solution to achieve them is right now (and why).

KEEP YOUR EXISTING CONTENT & IMAGE LIBRARY

Moving from a WordPress solution to a third party solution like Squarespace, Showit or Wix is going to mean you need to move all of your current content and images manually. As an existing Flothemes user you can migrate to a new WordPress theme fairly easily without losing anything.

KEEP YOUR EXISTING SEO SETTINGS

The best way to redesign your website without losing any SEO settings is to take a complete copy or ‘staging site’ which you can work on behind the scenes. We have a complete step-by-step guide to help you do that quickly and safely and it means you can ‘go live’ at the click of a button.

MAKE SURE YOU NEVER HAVE TO MOVE AGAIN

One of the best things about Flothemes (the Flexblock) has also turned out to be one of the drawbacks. Your content inside Flexblocks is actually hidden away in custom fields, so when you turn off Flothemes, your content ‘disappears’.

Don’t panic – it’s still there in your database and we can help you rescue it. But we also want to make sure you never get put in this position again. Read on to find out how…

Why Kadence and how does it work?

FIRSTLY, WE BELIEVE IT’S THE BEST WORDPRESS SYSTEM FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS RIGHT NOW.

Many themes & page builders (like Divi and Elementor) float over the top of WordPress which can add bloat and slow your site.

Whereas Kadence is simply an extension of the native WordPress block builder. It’s PURE WordPress but with superpowers and an easy editing interface. Absolutely no code required.

In fact, you’ll feel right at home because Flothemes also used the block builder too.

Kadence is known for it’s speed, simplicity and ease of use. We worked closely with the Kadence team to build our system and their roadmap is closely linked to what WordPress is planning for the future.

How to actually move from Flothemes

Take a copy of your site to staging

Most hosting companies offer ‘staging’ – the ability to take a copy of your site to work on behind the scenes. It’s usually a one-click process, but if it isn’t, we’ll help you work out a solution or give you a temporary site on our servers.

Unpack your content with our Flothemes Migrator plugin

If you’ve used Flothemes ‘Flexblocks’ or Galleries then you might need to extract some of your content using the free plugin we developed. We have a detailed step-by-step video guide and we’re always available to support you.
