These are questions related to the new Migrate tool
I just purchased the Migrate tool, How do i find it?
A: The tool can be found in your "Mobile and Desktop Sites" module. In your list of sites, there should be an orange button near the top right that says "Import a Site". If you have purchased the migrate tool, and do not see the button, you can message support with your receipt and purchase info, and we will look into your account.
I Already have Mobifirst, how do I get the Migrate tool?
A: Check your email. If you are an existing customer at the time of the webinar, you should have an email with information about upgrading. If you do not have the email you can send support a ticket saying you do not have the upgrade email and we will look into the issue.
Will the functionality of the site be brought over?
A: Somewhat. The content will be copied over. You will have to restore functionality using our platform and widgets. We do not support direct WordPress plugins, but our widgets and integrations can achieve similar functions and results.
Once a site is brought over is it different from one started from scratch on MF? (Can I use all the widgets, themes, etc.)
A: The site is the same as one built from scratch or an existing template on Mobifirst. You can use the same widgets and settings.
Is it easy to move around content after it is brought over if I want to rearrange things?
A: Yes! Its very simple to re-arrange content and edit text using our platform by moving the order of the widgets, and editing the content within the widget
How easy is it to use branding (colors and fonts) after bringing a site over with the import tool?
A: Its very easy to add images and logos to any page using one of many widgets, and all text can be edited for color and font.
Why do I need a new SSL if my old site already had one; doesn't that move over with the site?
A: Your SSL is attached to the domain and server for your old site. When you move your site over to our platform, it will require you to change or modify your Cname and move your site over to us. This will require you to assign a new SSL to your site.
Why doesn't the migration tool bring over all types of sites; why only WP and WiX?
A: This is a brand-new technology that is still in development and constantly being improved. Considering the numerous plugins and content available for Wordpress, It will take time for everything to work properly and be perfect. We will continue to improve the platform constantly.
I have several WP plugins, can I use them on my MF site after I migrate it over?
A: We are not Wordpress and are built on different technology. The Plugins themselves will not be transferred to Mobifirst, however we should be able to accomplish similar functions using our platform.
Why should I migrate my WP site to the MobiFirst platform?
A:Wordpress is built on old technology using responsive sites. This is slower and less mobile friendly than our mobile-first sites that our platform creates. Not to mention that Wordpress is an open-source platform which makes it less secure. Many of the most common website hacks and exploits revolve around Wordpress weakness. Mobifirst is a much faster, more secure, and mobile friendly website builder.
