Title: The Task Of Theme Migration Is Impossible And Time-Consuming From Magento 1 to Magento 2


1
  • The Task Of Theme Migration Is Impossible And
    Time-Consuming From Magento 1 to Magento 2

2
  • The aesthetics, along with the look and feel of
    the website, are crucial aspects for accessing
    the overall impact of an online store. Businesses
    inhibit themselves from changing the visual
    influence of the website. However, while
    migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2, it might
    be impossible. The migration of themes is a
    daunting task and might leave the new Magento 2
    store with a lot of loopholes. Let us walk
    through the issues involved in theme migration
    and try to find the reasons for companies to hire
    magento developer for migration to Magento 2.

Need For Migration To Magento 2
4
  • Businesses want lucid and elegant ways to boost
    their online stores speed. Magento started
    offering Magento 2 in 2015, which is full of new
    features and a completely revamped architecture
    without compromising on the performance of the
    store. Magento 2 is quicker, user-friendly, and
    performance-oriented. With features like
    full-page caching, enhanced indexes, and
    optimized databases, it has earned the numero uno
    status in the CMS market. Another reason for
    migration is that Magento is going to end
    user-support for Magento 1 in June 2020. So, it
    is the perfect time to migrate to Magento 2.
    However, there are certain recommendations while
    migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

5
Recommendations During Migration
6
  • Businesses while switching from Magento 1 to
    Magento 2 should take care of certain things to
    avoid issues like data loss, or flawed
    functionality.
  • A backup of the existing store is required as a
    contingency plan.
  • A cloned version of the store should be used for
    the migration process instead of the live store,
    to avoid mishaps.
  • Analyze the store to keep only the necessary
    things.
  • The compatibility of existing extensions, themes,
    and customized code should be checked with
    Magento 2 platform.
  • Data migration should be performed on the clone
    of the database.
  • Delete irrelevant, outdated, and futile data from
    the database, including logs.
  • The fresh installation of Magento 2 should be
    done on the server hosting the current store.
  • It is essential to test the new store
    comprehensively for critical functions once the
    migration is over.
  • Apart from this, one should keep in mind that the
    JS framework in Magento 1 has been replaced with
    jQuery in Magento 2.

  • However, it is a known fact that without proper
    planning, migration can hamper the functionality
    of the store badly. So, it is suggested to hire
    best magento developer only to handle issues
    related to data and theme migration.

Theme Migration
9
  • The current themes used in the existing store
    should be checked for compatibility with Magento
    2. If it is compatible, then theme migration is a
    piece of cake. In case of incompatibility, the
    theme migration is not worth considering. The
    only option left is to either create a new
    customized theme in Magento 2 or purchase a
    Magento 2 compatible theme from the Magento
    marketplace or a third-party vendor. But, store
    owners can rest assured that Magento 2 themes are
    more responsive and attractive than Magento 1
    themes. Magento 2 themes have been designed to
    augment the user-engagement level and deliver the
    best-in-class shopping experience. One can also
    customize the existing themes to make them
    suitable as per Magento 2 standards. But, theme
    migration might open a plethora of issues to be
    dealt with.

10
Theme Migration Issues And Alternatives
11
  • The Magento 1 and Magento 2 themes are
    incompatible. So, it is impossible to copy the
    existing stores theme as it is. The alternative
    options are either to purchase a new Magento 2
    readymade theme or to create your own Magento 2
    theme. Let us explore the pros and cons of these
    two options. The use of a pre-made theme saves a
    lot of time and cost and allows a little bit of
    customization also. Choosing the second option
    might prolong the launch of the new Magento2
    store due to several reasons. One obvious reason
    is the need to do intricate coding on your own.
    It also demands extensive knowledge of various
    programming languages along with Magento 2s
    internal functioning knowledge. The entire
    front-end needs an overhaul with the need to
    rewrite all the CSS and HTML templates.

12
Final Thoughts
13
  • Although store owners are uncomfortable changing
    the look and feel of a successful website, it is
    essential while migrating to a better platform.
    Magento 2 is a better performing CMS if compared
    to Magento 1. Everything but the theme can be
    migrated from the existing store to the new
    Magento 2 store. Businesses do not like to
    experiment much with the aesthetics of an
    established store. They try to maintain the
    visual impact while migrating towards a new
    platform as well. Customizing the existing theme
    to run it on Magento 2 store might actually
    degrade its performance instead of boosting it. A
    readymade theme would be an optimal alternative
    due to the time and cost factors.
