Theme Converter

Using The Converter

If you are using the Gauge, The Review, Huber theme or Ultimate Reviewer plugin you can convert your hub and review data so it can be used in the Magzine theme. Follow these steps to convert your data:

  1. Go to Magzine > Tools and scroll down to the Converter option.
  2. From the dropdown menu select the theme or plugin you are using.
  3. If you select Gauge/The Review you have a few options to check/uncheck. Once done, click the Convert button.
  4. By default it converts 500 items at a time but you can increase or decrease this number depending on your servers resources.
  5. Once all items have been converted you will see a green completed message.

What IS converted

Hub associations, rating data, good/bad points, release dates, summary excerpts, image tab galleries, hub fields, custom and sub titles, following data.

What is NOT converted

Custom hub tabs, affiliate links, any layout or styling data.
