Unnecessary Plugin Removal
We have made the Meta Box plugin a part of our MedicalPress Utilities plugin so that it will be deactivated automatically. It will be unnecessary to keep that one and also will be safe to remove.
Newly Added Menu
We have added a new admin menu MedicalPress which keeps all the theme related admin options. All the post types like Doctors, Galleries, Services, FAQs, and Testimonials can be accessed from inside this menu. The Demo Import and Theme Options are also moved in it from Appearance parent admin menu. The related screenshot is given below.
Re-Save Permalinks Settings
Once these steps are followed, are installed and activated, Navigate to Dashboard → Settings → Permalinks and click on Save button to re-save settings. This step is also very important to refresh the WordPress URL structure to avoid any 404 errors on the front end.
