  • You cannot change the template once a site is created. You will have to delete the site and create again with the new template.

  • You're right.

    It looks like right now we're writing a script to convert the files.

    Our plan is to backup the site, run the script to convert.  Recreate the site with the new template. Then import the files.

    Thanks.
