    Hello,

    I followed your instructions and updated to V2. However, the website doesn’t look like it used to -it is empty. The places are not showing, maps, even the search bar and the categories. I can see that the places in WP but they are not showing on the website.
    Also, the message about the database update is still showing in WP for a few hours now.

    “GeoDirectory data update – Your database is being updated in the background. Taking a while? Click here to run it now.” And when I click to run it now, nothing happens.

    Please advise ASAP.

    Thank you!

    We need access to the plugins to see what’s happening.
    Please upgrade the user

    Did you follow these steps here: https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/geodirectory/installation/#convert
    ?

    Yes, the only thing I missed to check was the uninstall options of the old plugin. Are the all unchecked by default?

    They are unchecked by default.

    Please upgrade the user to a network admin.

    Now the search bar appeared, but the categories icons are messed up, the menu links are not there and the listings are not on the home page. Can you fix that?

    You will need to edit your front page to add shortcodes.
    For the categories, you will probably want to set FA Icons, a new feature in the CPT Categories.
    Try going through this:
    https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/geodirectory/getting-started/
    Then this

    I see, I expected that the settings would convert too. Now I have to redo the entire website…

    Can you tell me what FA icons are? I searched through the links you provided and did not see anything about them? Do they have to be a specific file and size to look good on the Home page?

    FA = Font Awesome
    If you navigate to
    Places – Categories – Edit (category) – Icon
    You will see a chooser to choose an icon for the category.
    They are sized automatically for the popular categories widget.

    I would like to keep the custom icons. How can I make them look good as they did before?

    Hi Wholistic,

    Thanks for your reply. Let’s use the custom CSS code below and see if it’s what you’re looking for.

    .geodir-categories-container ul li a .gd-cptcat-icon img {
        max-height: 100%!important;
        margin-top: 0%!important;
        padding:4px!important;
    }

    Hi Kor,

    It did improve by adding this and by me adjusting the numbers a bit to

    .geodir-categories-container ul li a .gd-cptcat-icon img {
    max-height: 100%!important;
    margin-top: 10%!important;
    padding:0px!important;
    }

    However, the icons are still a little too small and the first and last icons are not vertically centered. How can we adjust this?
