We demonstrate how to upgrade to Thesis 2.4 on our site, BYOBWebsite. There have been internal improvements that may cause problems on your site which we address as we go through the upgrade process.
There are three things in particular that can affect your site. One has to do with your CSS and another has to do with Thesis no longer supporting an obsolete hook system. The third is fixing scripts and html. We have a second video that you can watch for how to fix the scripts.
We also talk about choosing to wait to upgrade until your Theme has been brought up to Thesis 2.4 compliance.
We demonstrate the following steps in this video.
- Make a backup in the Data Manager
- Upgrade Thesis
- Upgrade Skins and Boxes
- Install and Run “Fix CSS”
- Dump all Caches
- Check Site Appearance
- Delete Fix CSS
- Check for Broken Scripts
