    Hi there! I’ve been using your themes since 2013 and i need to update to Daisho version 3. I tried replacing the Functions.php with the code on github but this doesn’t seem to make a difference. What am i doing wrong? Is there a tutorial somewhere on what exactly i’m suppposed to do to upgrade from version 2 to 3?


    Thanks for your help!

    Hi there,

    Please don’t update your v2.x to v3.x because v4.x is coming very soon. It will be available for download on probably this or next week.

    Updating from v2.x to v3.x works normally:

    1. Rename your old folder to “daisho-backup”.
    2. Upload the theme again to “daisho” folder.
    3. Enter every page and check what doesn’t work (because you’re updating between major and distant releases and it’s certain that some things changed) and fix whatever may not work (if anything). These will be usually minor changes (like renamed shortcode or a custom field). Most or all changes are going to be fixed automatically.

    The Github code snippet can be considered to be deprecated because it was converting old custom field names (like flow_post_description) to new custom field names (like daisho_description). But in v4.x this custom field will be gone altogether and it will be replaced with a “page description” Gutenberg block.

    We recommend that you install Gutenberg ( and wait for a Daisho update. (Please don’t worry about its low rating, the plugin is very good technically (better than any other page builder for WordPress to date) but the low ratings are arriving while it’s in development and still unusable).
