Please follow the steps below to upgrade safely from Youzer to Youzify.

2. Deactivate All Youzer Old Add-ons.
3. If you are using bp-custom.php, we will need to avoid making the site going down because of missing functions by disabling it temporarily. You can disable it by renaming the file from "bp-custom.php" to "bp-custom-backup.php". But don't worry we will re-enable it back after few steps.
4. Install Youzify and activate it.
5. Deactivate Youzer.

9. Delete Youzer and all old Youzer add-ons.
10. if you are using any Youzer shortcodes, please change them with the newest ones. Please check this article >> https://kainelabs.ticksy.com/article/13189/
11. If you are using Youzer custom snippets, go to the file "bp-custom-backup.php" we renamed in step 3 and change all the prefixes below if found:
- Change the prefix "yz_" into "youzify_"

- Change the prefix "yz-" to "youzify-"
Once you finish editing the prefixes you can now rename the file "bp-custom-backup.php" into "bp-custom.php" again.
