How To Update To Realty 3

Realty 3.0 is our attempt to ensure the Realty theme stays in the most up-to-date condition. We have added Visual Composer integration, which requires some manual adjustments on your end to ensure all the parts of your site are working properly.

First of all, we are currently (July 14, 2016) working on an update that allows you to run Realty 3.0 without Visual Composer, as not everyone wants to use Visual Composer. This update will bring back the Shortcode dropdown and new theme migration options, which will convert the page settings from now obsolete page templates into working shortcodes, automatically inserted into your content. So you do not have to manually change any content in order to use Realty 3 (which is the case right now).

If you already updated to Realty 3.0, and would like to roll back to Realy 2.4.3, please open a  support ticket so you can email you Realty 2.4.3.
