I don’t want to lose my changes.. Thanks, Steve Marshall November 15, 2019 at 2:12 pm #31201 shamimKeymaster It depends on so many things. better you can update in your staging website, then test. if everything works then update in production website. Let me know if you need any assistance from me. November 15, 2019 at 7:47 pm #31203 SteveMTNOParticipant I only have one site environment – there is no test/stage/prod. Should I just backup the plugin folder, then install the new version and restore what gets affected? Are there any template files from 8.3 that won’t work anymore in the new version? November 16, 2019 at 12:20 am #31209 shamimKeymaster There are lots of changes. It is almost a new plugin now. Please see changelog bottom of https://www.shamimsplugins.com/products/front-end-pm-pro/ It will be better if you can update and then work on new template files. Please backup full website (files and database) then update.

I made a backup on the folder first. Everything looks good, but all of the existing messages are gone. What do I need to restore to get the old messages back? November 18, 2019 at 11:12 am #31263 shamimKeymaster I am very sorry for late reply. There should be a button in your website admin area top notices that Front End PM PRO database needs an update. Please click proceed and start update. Depending on your number of messages it may take some time. November 19, 2019 at 8:47 am #31303 SteveMTNOParticipant That did the trick.. thanks!
