Auto update from 1.0 to 2.0 is not possible
Although the theme looks exactly the same, because The Practice 2.0 was built on an entirely different framework, an easy auto update is not possible. So if you already purchased and have a website integrated on The Practice 1.0 you can’t upgrade to 2.0. You’ll need to start implementing your website from scratch.
