Detour Pro Documentation

EE2 Installation Instructions

Extremely Important! It is highly recommended that you make a backup of your database before you install Detour Pro, especially if you have Detour already installed. The installation process will modify the Detour tables and uninstall the old version of Detour.

Copy Installation Files

Copy the detour_pro folder from the download folder to your site's /system/expressionengine/third_party/ directory.

Copy the themes/detour_pro folder from the download folder to your site's /themes/third_party/ directory.

Install Module and Extension

Navigate to Add-Ons > Modules.
Click on Install in the Detour Pro row.

Special Note for Detour users

Detour Pro will automatically update your current version of Detour to the pro version. All of your detours will already be in Detour Pro upon installation. The installation process will also uninstall the old Detour extension.

If you uninstall the old Detour extension (or reinstall and then uninstall it), you will lose all of your Detour data; DO NOT DO THIS!
