Upfront buttons are not copied correctly by 'new blog template' plugin

Upfront buttons are not copied correctly by 'new blog template' plugin, namely the link that is supposed to point to a page in fact points to the page in template. So, this has not been solved yet although reportet already two years ago in https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/bug-when-using-new-blog-template-with-upfront-themes-the-links-dont-cop-correctly?ptma=b&utm_expid=3606929-109.P6e7JvhjTrWFxwrJZjRkog.1&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.nl%2F
I use 'gilie' theme.
