Move from Base 3 to Base 4

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Time to update the Base 3 template to the Buildr Base 4 option.
Will it be as simple as installing Buildr, then setting Base 4 as the default style instead of Base 3?
Or is it all going to fall into a heap because everything behind the scenes is completely different in Base4?
If anyone knows what to expect when there is such a transition, please let me know so I can allocate either a couple of hours or a couple of days to it.

Thanks, Nick

Forgot to mention that this site uses K2, will that affect things during the transition?

Hi Nick,

You would want to change the template in a development site rather than use the live site

You would need to re-configure the positions used and the layout is different

I'd say a couple of days rather than hours as it is a lot different with much more flexibility

Cheers
Paul
