    Hi there,

    I just installed a brand new copy of Fusion and the Freelancer theme, which apparently required the Woocommerce plugin. I didn’t intend on using Woocommerce, so I didn’t install or activate the plug-in before I imported the Freelancer theme (it should be noted that the installation instructions said that Woocommerce was recommended but not required, and I didn’t know that the Freelancer theme demo would have required it either).

    So two things:

    1) The Freelancer demo gave me a couple of errors, so I installed & activated the Woocommerce plug-in, and then re-imported the Freelancer demo. I hope it was OK to do that twice without uninstalling the data first (which I wouldn’t know how to do). Do you think the demo data and templates are OK?

    2) I still have a warning message that says this:
    “Your theme (Fusion Child) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files. These files may need updating to ensure they are compatible with the current version of WooCommerce. You can see which files are affected from the system status page. If in doubt, check with the author of the theme.”

    There are several things in the list on the system status page that are out of date.

    Can you help me fix this? I’m worried about starting a new site with a system full of errors.



    *note: I reference the Freelancer “theme” in the first para above, but I meant “demo”. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hi Laura,

    Neither of these are really issues to worry about as long as the errors you received during import were related to shop/products. However:

    1. Freelancer, does not contain products. If everything looks okay on your site (checking over your demo it looks like everything did import correctly_, then there’s probably nothing to do here. If something was not imported correctly, we’ll need the specific error message you received during import.

    2. This can be safely ignored. Woocommerce puts out this message whenever a template file is overridden to warn against any breaking changes, but we have already checked and updated these and there will be no file changes. The next Fusion release will update to this version number to remove this warning message. And if you’re not planning on having products, I would definitely disable Woocommerce anyway so you don’t have the added weight on your site.



    OK — great, thank you so much for the quick response!
