    I’m trying to use the XStore theme on my website. After I installed the theme, I couldn’t find the dashboard of XStore.
    I saw in the video that the theme needs to be activated. But this will replace my current theme and affect the sales of my website.
    I want to make tweaks to the XStore theme without activating it and activate it when it’s ready.
    what should I do?

    Hello, @tom.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to use all the features of the theme without activating it. You must activate the theme first, and then you will be able to install the theme plugins and import the theme demos.

    We do not suggest installing the theme on a site that already has another theme installed, as this may cause unexpected issues. We always recommend installing the theme on a fresh WordPress installation.

    Please watch and follow the instructions in the video linked below:

    If I modify the x-store theme in a fresh WordPress, can it be fully covered back to my current website?
    I don’t want to lose historical content like products, orders etc.

    Hello Tom,

    If you install and modify the XStore theme on a fresh new WordPress, you should not encounter any issues. Additionally, once you have completed your site with XStore on a fresh new WordPress, you can import the products from your old site to the newly created site via any means.

    Best Regards,
