Make Older Templates New :)

Featured Lock Resolved Task
Hello,

One thing I would really like to see, convert some of the older Helix 3 templates to Helix Ultimate. For example, in our case, we use the News365 template on a news site with thousands of articles.

It would be great to update that template to Helix Ultimate vs rebuilding the entire site. It's a great looking template. Why not give it a refresh? Especially since there are only 4 news editorial templates available.

Just a thought,
John

Hi,
thanks, noticed.
But as I know, in upcoming weeks you should see a new NEWS template based on Helix Ultimate,
so maybe you can consider switching from old to a new one. Go one step ahead, not back.

That's a nice thought, but when you are the only person managing, updating and re-designing 33 corporate websites, there's not enough time for all the extra work. Switching to a new template isn't just plug and play.

New365 isn't that old and it's a great looking template, would be even better as a Helix Ultimate template, that's all I'm saying. :)

"old" - not old, sure.

I fully understand, but it doesn't depend on me.
There is no magic migration button, even for us, we have to rebuild the whole template to make it HU, which is a long process.
