Joomla! Template 002031 - Item Support

I am try to update from my current 2.5 template to my new 3.0 template of AS002031. However, as soon as I uninstall the old template using extension manager, My template settings from 2.5 are deleted. How can I install the new template without deleting settings of the old version? Is there a secret to updating my old template to my new template without losing my current settings?
Hello OZARKMINI,
The problem is that the new template for Joomla version 3 was fully recreated, changed all module positions and files structure. It will not work just by replacing the previous template version. The template is moved under Bootstraped Framework. The Bootstrap Framework makes it fully responsive to all screen resolutions and aspect ratios. Moreover, thus it carries a lot of useful features, for instance additional HTML elements, set of CSS components, grid system and much more.

If you will decide to move to the new version you will need to build your existing site from scratch using the quick-start package. Please do not forget about backups.

Okay. That is fine. Question. I have followed the direction on your website and installed the template using quickstart.zip. However it has deleted my menus as well as the template settings. After restoring from the backup I used only the premium.zip. Is there anything I am missing by not using quickstart.zip?
Hello OZARKMINI,
As we posted in our previous post if you will decide to move to the new version you will need to build your existing site from scratch using the quick-start package. It will not work just by replacing the previous template version.

Thank you. I will start rebuilding. So goes upgrading.
Sorry. One more question. It is not completely clear where to upload quickstart. Is it in the root folder of Joomla installation or is it in a new sub directory?
Hello OZARKMINI,
It depends on what do you need, if you install it in the root folder you have to delete the old Joomla version, if you install it in some sub folder you may use it for your development and when your site will be done you can move it to the root.
