This guide covers your options should you choose to click the “I’ll convert Later” link as pictured below.
Clicking this link will take you directly to the Site Center. When ready to convert your site, follow the directions below.
Here’s a short video covering the process.
Your Site Center will show that you have a homepage in the site map. The preview on the right will display placeholder content in the SLS2 homepage template for your site.
Keep in mind that none of your old site has been converted yet - neither your homepage nor any of the interior pages. You may start the conversion process when you are ready to proceed.
When Ready to Convert
Go to the Site Center, select the Tools tabs, and click the Convert button. Conversion must complete before you can do anything else. Most sites take under 15 minutes. If you have a big site with a lot of documents in the locker, it could take up to three hours. You can shut the tab and come back later.
At this point you may return to Step 3 of the Easy Start Guide: Convert to SLS2 using Snap Templates. However, you do have some options before returning to that guide.
Add Sections and Pages
It’s perfectly safe to create new sections pages before converting your old site. After conversion, your site will have all your old and new content. Note that your old site will be converted as it exists and it’s not possible to predetermine where the converted pages will be placed.
Visit our Help Center for more information about adding new sections and pages.
Work on the Homepage
While you may choose to start working on your homepage - adding text, images, and so on - you should only do so if you do not want any of your old homepage content brought over.
If you’d like to work on your homepage, go to Step 3 of the Easy Start Guide: Convert to SLS2 using Snap Templates.
