👇 Let’s start the SR7 Engine upgrade process!

2. Previewing the SR7 Engine: A Risk-Free Approach with Your Modules

Open every page on your website, that uses Slider Revolution, and add this parameter to it’s URL:
?srengine=7

Example URL:
http://www.mysrwebsite.com

Example SR7 Test URL:
http://www.mysrwebsite.com/?srengine=7

This approach allows you to view the Slider Revolution modules on your page through the SR7 Engine, exclusively for your preview.
Meanwhile, your website visitors will continue to experience the site as powered by the SR6 Engine, ensuring their experience remains consistent for now.

👉 Next Step: Have you noticed any new visual or functional issues that weren’t there before?
Yes, there are issues.   No, it works well!

3. Backing up your Modules before Addressing SR7 Engine Concerns

Having identified the issue(s) in your Slider Revolution module through the SR7 Engine preview, the next step is to address the problem.

Begin by creating a copy of the problematic module.
To do this, locate the dropdown menu beneath the module and select “Duplicate.”


When operating on a live site:

Consider renaming the duplicated module to 
“UPDATED your-module-name” or another easily identifiable title.

We’ll address the issues within this duplicate to ensure the live site’s functionality remains unaffected.
Once the corrections are made, remember to either replace the original module on the pages where it’s used or revert the duplicate’s name to the original.

While operating on a staging site:

It’s crucial to back up each module you intend to modify. 

Given the nature of staging environments, you have the flexibility to directly adjust the original modules without concern for temporary disruptions to site functionality.

👉 Next Step: Was your Slider Revolution module developed using a template from our Library?
Yes, I used a Slider Revolution template   No, this is a fresh/3rd party module

4. Fine-Tuning Your Modules for the SR7 Engine: Essential & Optional Modifications

The SR7 Engine has been meticulously crafted from the ground up to embody the pinnacle of modern standards, including efficiency, best practices, SEO optimization, and performance excellence.

Simultaneously, we’ve prioritized ensuring that the SR7 Engine maintains extensive backward compatibility with modules developed using the SR6 Engine before the release of Slider Revolution v6.7.

Typically, any issues that arise are linked to bugs in the SR6 Engine, which have been addressed in the SR7 Engine. Consequently, certain adjustments may be required, varying based on the specific configuration of your Slider Revolution module.

6. Enabling the SR7 Engine: A Simple Switch in Your Admin Dashboard

If everything looks and works well, you can switch to the SR7 Engine in your admin dashboard by clicking the “Switch to SR7 Engine” Button.

You will be prompted with a popup where you need to check that you went through all of the above steps.

Simply check all of the steps and then click “Enable SR7 Engine Now”:

Automatic SR7 Data Migration and Status Indicators

Before officially transitioning to the SR7 Engine, the SR6 Engine data structures of your existing modules will be automatically migrated to a new SR7 Engine database.

This background process is designed to be seamless and will not affect your current operations or user experience.

Once the switch to the SR7 Engine is made, you’ll be able to monitor the migration status directly from the Slider Revolution admin overview through a distinctive badge indicator.

This badge will display one of two symbols to represent the migration status of your modules:

All Modules Updated to SR7

A blue checkmark accompanied by numbers, e.g., “12/12”, indicating that the data for all your existing modules has been successfully converted to the SR7 Engine format.

Partial Migration Detected

A yellow exclamation mark also accompanied by numbers, e.g., “10/12”, signaling that while most modules have been successfully migrated, some encountered issues requiring your attention.

👉 Next Step: Do you see a yellow exclamation mark, indicating a partial migration?
Yes, there is a migration problem.   No. Migration was successful!

7. Resolving Migration Issues for Enhanced SR7 Engine Compatibility

If you’ve encountered issues during the migration of your Slider Revolution modules to the SR7 Engine, as indicated by a yellow exclamation mark badge, this section of the guide is dedicated to helping you resolve those issues.

Verify Add-on Compatibility

The first step in resolving migration issues is to ensure that all add-ons used by the problematic module are installed and up to date.
Outdated or missing add-ons can cause compatibility issues with the SR7 Engine.
To check and update your add-ons:

  1. Navigate to the Add-ons section within the Slider Revolution admin panel.
  2. Verify that each add-on used by your module is installed. If not, proceed to install the necessary add-ons.
  3. Check for updates for each add-on and update if necessary. Keeping add-ons up to date is crucial for ensuring compatibility with the latest engine.

Refresh Module Data

After ensuring that all add-ons are in place and updated, the next step involves refreshing your module’s data:

  1. Open the problematic module in the Slider Revolution editor.
  2. Make any minor edit, or simply re-save the module without making any changes.

This action can help to refresh the module’s data structure for compatibility with the SR7 Engine.

Clear and Rebuild SR7 Data

If the above steps do not resolve the migration issues, you may need to clear and rebuild the SR7 data:

Go to the Global Settings in the Slider Revolution admin overview.

Locate and click on the Clear SR7 Tables button.
This action will remove all previously migrated data to the SR7 engine database.

After clearing the data, and saving the Global Settings, the migration process will be automatically triggered again, the next time you load the SR overview page. This can help to resolve any issues encountered during the initial migration.

Finalizing the Migration

Once you have completed these steps, verify the migration status of your modules in the Slider Revolution admin overview.

If successful, you should see a blue checkmark badge indicating that all modules have been successfully migrated.

👉 Next Step: Could you resolve all migration issues?
Yes! The migration was successful.   No. I require additional assistance.
