Hello Pascal,

Old themes are all for Joomla 3 and cannot be imported or converted for Joomla 4 automatically. The themes are completely different as if they were for different CMS's. That is why for Joomla 4 a separate theme should be downloaded and not just Joomla 3 theme with Themler update.

Here are possible ways to make creating themes easier (if they are made to re-create old themes):
- organize controls in Sections and use Export as Zip option in the Section tab, then import them in a new theme using Import as Zip
- there are Export / Import options available in the Posts tab to transfer Posts layout and styling

There is a separate Themler theme for Joomla 4 at https://themler.io/Download. Currently it is in Beta. Please update it to the latest Themler version as it includes some fixes. Or please use the updated theme attached to this post.

Sincerely,
Nettie
