How to Migrate to a New WordPress Plugin

This article is only for the owners of WordPress websites who has an old Workshop Butler plugin (version 1.2 and less) installed. 

The latest plugin comes with a number of changes which are not backward compatible with the previous version of the plugin. As a result, the upgrade requires additional actions from your side. No worries, they are simple and do not require technical skills.

1

Upgrade the plugin to the latest version. The schedule of events should keep working, as well as the sidebar widget. 

2

Update the API key. The new version uses new API keys that you get by opening your account settings and selecting API in the left-side menu. If you experience difficulties finding the new key, check this guide.

During the upgrade of the key, your existing schedule and the sidebar widget keep working.

3

Configure the new schedule. Read  the installation guide on how to do that.

4

Check the new schedule. During the update the plugin adds five new pages, as described in  the installation guide. The page containing the schedule should be under /schedule url. However, it can be different if you already have a page with such url. 

5

If everything is okay, replace the old schedule with the new schedule. For that, open the page with the old schedule, find [wb_content] shortcode and replace it with [wsb_schedule] shortcode.
