As some of you know, we are preparing a BIG Kallyas update. We’ve built Kallyas from scratch and added some very cool features for you :
– Front end page builder ( with templates saving, elements cloning, and almost every feature requested by you so far )
– Many new design elements ( we’ll have almost 100 design elements that you can use in the pagebuilder )
– New styles for existing elements, ( Since the release of Kallyas, the design patterns have changed. You’ll get a design refresh so you don’t have to change the theme )
And, many, many more features ( we don’t want to spoil the surprise ) .
Please find a small preview bellow :
Now, regarding beta testing. We are performing tests for almost 2 months on the new theme, however, you can never be sure that everything will run smoothly on our clients sites. This is why we would like to have some of you involved in this process. By doing this, you’ll get an early access to this update and also, if any problems appears we can resolve them before the final update release.
If you’re eager to help, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us your purchase code and we will get back with more info about the tests and the update.
For the guys who have some questions, here is a small Q/A :
Q: With this update, will i have to redo my entire site?
A: No, we have included a data conversion system that will help you convert the old Kallyas installation to this new one. This process is done by pressing a single button inside the admin panel
Q: I’ve made some major modifications to the theme files. Will i loose this changes ?
A: If you made changes to the actual theme files, it may be possible that your changes will be lost. It’s never recommended to make changes to the theme files and should only be done by a developer.
Q: Can i perform the tests on my live website?
A: No! For the moment, we highly recommend to make a clone of your website and perform the tests locally. There may still be some things we’ve didn’t encountered during our convert tests.
Hope you guys are as exited about this update as we are,

Just looked at your site.. i saw that many theme files were missing. I’ve uploaded the beta version now and you should be able to continue.

The product related pages are not yet ready 🙂 . Hopefully, i will add the fixes today.
The errors you received should be ok now ( i’ve updated the files on your server ).
Please let me know if you encounter any more problems .

I really LOVE the new page builder, also new styles are great.
Page options on the sidebar of the page editor is cool too.
Added a comment in a page to see where it was going to be shown, I can’t find the comment!
I’ll keep testing everything 🙂August 12, 2015 at 3:16 pm #199802
I think i should have provided more details about the current betta version 😀
So far, the following things are not fully implemented ( for pages that already used the old pagebuilder ) :
– Shop pages that used pagebuilder ( for example, to change the sub-header )
– Pages that had comments
– Portfolio pages that used the old pagebuilder
Also, a new change regarding pagebuilder is that the comments won’t be automatically added. There will be a custom pagebuilder element for comments so you can place them anywhere on the page.
Please let me know if you have any questions / feedback.
