Since a template is build by all kinds of data that is saved in Themler it should be possible to create a converter. Technically this can be done, but i understand it will take time for your development team.

Personally i use Themler for almost all the websites i create. I need to update about a 100 websites before august 2023, so a convertor is very appreciated.

Will Themler come with a solution?

Though there may still be a few bumps in the road, definitely good, solid advice and in my experience the best and cleanest starting point.

A point to bear in mind though is that Joomla 4 offers so much more than Joomla 2.5 / 3 did, meaning that the workflow to build a site from scratch is far more efficient and faster now, and, with the ability to do more things from the core, it may make you see things differently about how you shape the website.

I understand your comment, but there is also a period where we want to upgrade websites without completely rebuilding the websites. Lot's of these websites are still very recent and up to date and all the new features from Joomla! 4 are not commonly used by the majority of the users of this CMS.

When you need to upgrade around a 100 websites, you don't want to rebuild all templates from scratch

Hello,

At the moment this is unfortunately not in the nearest plans. Joomla 3 and Joomla 4 theme structure is so different as if these were two different CMS's. However I will surely forward your suggestion to our developers for possible future consideration.

Sincerely,
Nettie

What a bad excuse. I have over 100 websites which i need to update this year. I agree. It's better to start from scratch and i hope i'm will do that for about 5 or 6 websites, maybe 10. The others i just want to convert for now and do a rebuild when i have more time

I still think that Themler is build as an application. All the settings are saved in the software, so it should be possible to create a convertor. I'm a software developer myself and i have an opinion about this. I'm sorry

Please update Themler compatible to Joomla 4 and php8 and do it now, we all paid for updated software.
Otherwise you will be liable for damages and we will all be credited for the time it takes to finally fix the problem.
You also make yourself liable to all your Themler customers for damages if your colleagues suffer financial damage.
As your customers, we are not obliged to look for alternatives.

Hello,

Please find the theme for Joomla 4 and PHP 8 attached. There are some known issues there but they are not reproducible in all cases, so it can work for you,

Sincerley,

Will Themler come with a solution?

No, you will have to redesign everything.
The developersteam is not capable or willing to create a convertor.
They only want to make you pay and switch to nicepage

Ik zal het in het Nederlands zetten, want ik zie dat je uit Limburg komt...
Dit is als zovelen voor ons, en ze weigeren gewoon iets te doen.
Overschakelen naar een ander pakket is de boodschap.

NL answer: Fijn dat je in het Nederlands wilt communiceren, maar ik ga toch verder in het Engels omdat ik vindt dat iedereen op een openbaar forum het moet kunnen volgen. Ik ben Edwin van Scorpion Computers & Software, dus als je even zoekt vind je wel contactgegevens en ben ik zeker bereid hier nog even over te discussieren.

Continued in English: It seems like the only option for us to look for alternative software that can do the trick. Does someone have any good working suggestions. And to be specific upfront. Nicepage is not a good alternative for me. I'm looking for a template designer and not for a page designer.
