How to update theme to new versions?

Envato Plugin: The easiest way to update your theme is to use the Envato Market plugin. Just download the plugin and follow the installation guide from Envato. Also, this plugin notifies you if a new version of theme is available.

Then, download the latest version of theme from your Themeforest account, unzip the package and find thesaasx.zip. Finally, navigate to Appearance > Themes in your WordPress administration panel, click the Add New button at the top of the page, click the Upload theme button at the top of the page, select thesaasx.zip file and click Install Now.

How can I change form action url in form blocks such as contact, signup, or subscribe form?
To modify form settings, you should click somewhere that is in boundary of form and not click on buttons or inputs. That’s kind of tricky in some forms because there’s not enough padding around the form. The rule of thumb is to click on an empty space between two inputs or an input and a button. Then, you’ll see the form settings toolbar and you can open form attribute. Then, you’ll be able to set method to POST and place your action url.

Why HTML code of blocks are empty in the page builder?
Our blocks are dynamic blocks. The editor won’t be able to display HTML code of dynamic blocks because they’ll generate from PHP side of WordPress and before displaying the content in your website. So you can’t edit HTML code of the blocks from the page builder. This is default behavior of Gutenberg.
How to customize a block?
To modify output of a block, you have to modify our render function of any specific block from inside our plugin directory. You should navigate to /gutenberg/blocks/ , pick your desire block and modify render.php file.
For example to modify Feature #6, go to plugin directory and open /gutenberg/blocks/feature/block-6/render.php file. You can only change the HTML code you see in this file. Once you change it, you can see the result in your website, but not in the editor.
How to create a new block from any current one?
Unfortunately, building a block from existing one is not what we can offer right now. That requires to prepare a dev environment for writing ES2018 and compiling the assests which is beyond support of a WordPress theme.
The best option is to use Custom HTML block to design your own block. You can view source of all blocks in http://thetheme.io/thesaas/block/ or get help from UI Kit documentation in http://thetheme.io/thesaas/uikit/ to write your custom html blocks.
How can I create a new dynamic block?
Why I don’t see your blocks in Elementor plugin?
Our blocks are based on the default page builder of WordPress 5; Gutenberg. While you can use Elementor for 3rd-party blocks, but you need to use Gutenberg if you need to display our blocks inside your page.
How can I link/scroll to a section?
You can set an ID for each section from block options panel. In block options, expand “Advanced” and enter an ID in the “HTML Anchor (ID)” input. Let’s say you wrote “section-pricing” in the ID input, now you’re able to scroll to this section from any link inside the page with URL value of “#section-pricing”.
What is the difference between “thesaas” and “thesaasx”?
As you can see, we updated the theme to a new version with high amount of change. We have rewritten the theme completely. Unfortunately, these changes resulted in breaking changes which doesn’t let the old users update their theme to the new one. As a result, we renamed the theme from thesaas to thesaasx, so you won’t accidentally update your old theme to the new one. Let’s review the features of each theme:
- thesaas: The old version of theme released on 2017 which is still accessible from http://thetheme.io/wp/thesaas/ and we continue to release bug fixes regularly. We don’t suggest to use this theme in new websites anymore and try to upgrade to thesaasx if you have time for that. We support this theme util the mid or end of 2019 and you can find it inside your download package from Themeforest, zipped into “v1.zip”.
- thesaasx: The new generation of the theme that you’re browsing right now, released on Jan 14, 2019. This one is released to have an updated look and use the default visual page builder of WordPress 5 instead of a 3rd-party plugin. This theme is our focus from now on and we update the theme regularly to add more features, blocks, and pages. We strongly recommend to use this one if you want to start a website. Don’t forget to read our getting started article before installation.
