If shortcodes appear after updating Avada to 5.0
After updating to Avada 5.0 from Avada 4.0.x, you might see numerous shortcodes on your WordPress site.
This problem occurs because the conversion process was incomplete. You can rerun Shortcode Migration from version 4.0.3 to version 5.0 manually as follows:
Please go to Avada >System Status tab in Dashboard. You will see the following option:
Avada 5.0.0 Migration: Rerun Shortcode Migration from version 4.0.3 to version 5.0 manually
Please click “Rerun Shortcode Migration from version 4.0.3 to version 5.0 manually” to return the shorcode migration process. After the process is complete, please update your plugins. Now you will see your site working properly. (If not, please delete caches.)
Avada has been the top-selling WordPress theme for years. This theme offers lots of theme options where users can fine-tune their sites without having knowledge in any programming languages or without knowing coding. Most especially, Avada is good for beginners. If you want more agile themes, Enfold or X Theme may be more appropriate.
