I am trying to: Upgrade from Avada 4.0.3 to Avada 5.1.6.

I have Avada shortcodes in my Views, Content Templates, Archives, etc. Avada 5 requires conversion of the shortcodes, but it doesn't convert the shortcodes that are stored in the Views, Content Templates, etc. I found this site that explains how to have Avada convert shortcodes in custom types, but not sure that Views stores it's fields in custom types :https://theme-fusion.com/knowledgebase/avada-5-0-conversion-child-themes-custom-post-types/

Is there anyway that you know of to point Avada to convert the shortcodes that I have in my Views, etc? I thought maybe you've got a solution to this since you integrate with the Avada theme.

Thanks!
Mark

Hi Mark

I wasn't aware you needed to run something to update the Avada shortcodes, I'm surprised the Avada update doesn't scan the database automatically for its shortcodes.

In any case, if you need to specify the post types where Avada shortcodes may be included in the steps outlined in the document you linked to, you should include the 'view-template' post type (Views Content Templates), and you may want to include the 'cred-form' post type if you have added any Avada shortcodes to CRED forms.

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks. I've found there is also a post type of simply 'view' so I tried that one as well, but it seems that, at least at this point, Avada is not converting the shortcodes stored in those post types. I'm going to keep working at it and see if I can figure it out. Thanks.
