We recently made changes to how the iThemes Sales Accelerator Pro plugin and the individual Pro modules function. In this post, we’ll cover important information on how to update to iThemes Sales Accelerator 1.1.

Instead of including all the Pro modules in the iThemes Sales Accelerator Pro plugin, we wanted to create a more simplified version, allowing you to add just the Pro modules you need or want in separate “add-on” plugins.

Important: Going forward, you will use the free version of the iThemes Sales Accelerator plugin available on the WordPress.org Plugin Repository as the main (base) plugin. Then you will be able to install and active the Pro module plugins, such as Reporting Pro and Inventory (coming soon!), as separate add-on plugins to add additional features and functionality to iThemes Sales Accelerator.

Because of this change, we have to change how the plugin upgrade works just for this latest version update.

Steps to Upgrade to iThemes Sales Accelerator 1.1

  • 1. Before you begin, it’s a good idea to make a complete backup of your WordPress site before performing this (or any) major upgrade. We recommend using our WordPress backup plugin, BackupBuddy.
  • 2. Confirm that you’re running version 1.0.5 of iThemes Sales Accelerator Pro before performing this upgrade. Version 1.0.5 will keep you from having to reimport all of your sales data once you upgrade to 1.1. You’ll find this version update available from your WordPress dashboard (for licensed sites).iThemes Sales Accelerator 1.0.5
  • 3. Once you’ve updated and confirmed that you’re running version 1.0.5 of the iThemes Sales Accelerator Pro plugin, you can deactivate and delete the old iThemes Sales Accelerator Pro plugin from your site. You’ll then install the free version of iThemes Sales Accelerator, version 1.1.1.
  • 4. Install and activate the free version of the iThemes Sales Accelerator plugin by downloading it from the WordPress Repository or by going to Plugins > Add New and searching for iThemes Sales Accelerator.
