Replacing widgets in sidebars
# 1 year, 4 months ago
As you are already aware that we are updating all of our themes to comply with the new standards of WordPress along with requirements set by Envato Market(ThemeForest). In the process of theme upgradation we are moving all of the custom widgets from the theme to new/updated “Core Plugin”. So once you update your theme with the new version and install the “Core Plugin” you should see new widgets set available at your Appearance => Widgets page.
How to replace current widgets with the new ones:
- Go to your Appearance => Widgets page in the WP Dashboard
- Check the widgets used in your all sidebars and find the new widgets with same name at the left (widgets list). All new widgets name starts with (N)
- Add new new widget in the same sidebar, copy your widget title, settings in the new widget.
- Check your pages to see if both widgets are showing on the page sidebar.
- Now remove the old widget(without (N)) from your sidebar
- Repeat the above steps for all the sidebars/widgets.
All the new widgets will appear at the top of the widgets list like an example below:

I have tried to replace an old widget with the new version in an existing sidebar — I go through the process (drag, drop, update) however, when I navigate to the page as you suggest to see if there are 2 versions on the page… I find only the original version. In addition, when I return to the widget page, my sidebar has not “saved” the new widget.
What am I doing wrong?
@LoriSpechler You just need to replace the current widget in your sidebar with the new sidebar (Name staring with N) and after copying the widget settings into new widget, remove the old widget.

After updating to the new theme, i have an issue with slider revolution (informing me that i need to update to the latest version and activate my license). I also have some display issue with regard to the slider on top of the main page.
Is this a known issue, any solution ?
@Gungar Slider Revolution will keep asking for the registration but that is not mandatory to purchase your own license for this plugin as it comes with the theme itself.
The display issue which you are getting must be checked. You can open a support ticket here: https://support.imithemes.com/help/ticket/newGungarParticipantPost count: 8
@Author Thanks for clarifying the matter regarding Slider Revolution.
For the support ticket, im afraid i can not afford the cost tied to the process. I will take the trial & error route till i eventually get it fixed, hopping that upcoming updates will not wreck more havoc.

After updating to the latest Born To Give theme version slider revolution is no longer working or appearing on any pages.
The theme support has expired but your update has broken the theme. What is the fix for slider revolution issues since it seems to have happen to others?
@Kristen “Recent Sermons” also has a new widget which you can use in your sidebar. It will work like before. If you come across any problem using the new widget. Just open a support ticket here: https://support.imithemes.com/help/ticket/new or email me at envato[at]imithemes.combluwebParticipantPost count: 26
It looks like only the following Widgets are new (N) for Vestige:
(N) Custom Categories
(N) Upcoming Events
(N) Selected Post
(N) Upcoming Exhibitions
Once I’ve replaced the old with the new, that’s it… correct?
And the following Dashboard message will be removed during the next theme update.
Important! Since version 2.3 of theme, we have added a new plugin “AdoreChurch Core” with the theme which comes with a copy of all custom widgets of theme. We request you to please replace your widgets in all sidebars with the new ones before 31st October, 2019(when we will remove the widgets from theme itself) Learn more here
