As many of you might know by now, WPMU DEV gave us a shout out while announcing they were setting over 90% of their Premium plugins free .
Pro Sites was one of those plugins, and as soon as we heard the news we started to work on a solution that could help those who wanted to move their networks from Pro Sites to WP Ultimo, a migrator of sorts.
After two weeks of hard labor, here it is! The Pro Sites → WP Ultimo Migrator has arrived.
We know: switching a premium network from one platform to another might sound scary.
Our Migrator should be able to do 99% of the heavy-lifting for you in a completely automated way: Settings, API Keys, Coupons, Plans, Subscriptions, Transactions, Mappings. All that gets converted into data WP Ultimo can understand and you are pretty much ready to rock your WP Ultimo network after a couple of minutes.
The entire migration takes the form wizard that guides you through the process and you can check the tutorial we wrote about it here .
The Migrator is available as a free add-on and can be installed directly from the network admin panel on WP Ultimo → Add-ons.
The migrator also requires WP Ultimo version 1.9.11 to be installed, which in addition to fixing some small bugs, also adds support to domain mapping syncing to WPMU DEV’s new managed hosting with no extra configuration steps required on your part.
If you are interested in seeing the Migrator in action, we’ll be doing a live webinar on the WP Builds Facebook group this Thursday (June 6). Here’s the link to the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1871222949646541/. You’ll have to join the group to participate, which you should have done by now anyways! They are a great community.
UPDATE: You can watch the complete webinar by clicking on this link!
Despite having a lot of features in common, Pro Sites and WP Ultimo do have some differences. This inevitably means that, by migrating, you will lose some features, gain others, and have to learn how to manage your network the WP Ultimo way.
So, please, make sure you read this post to understand all these details.
Let us know if you have any questions!
We are here to help you on that journey!
