Had problem with Focus updates not coming through. Also Developer Tools box not updating.

Problem was conflict with BYOB Footer Widgets. BYOB skins may also cause conflict.

Make sure you backup before upgrading and making changes.
Best results when one question per thread, link to site, version of WP, Thesis and skin.

Hi Keith

So, you turn Off the Box, updated, and turn On the Box and all is fine ? Is that so ?

Yes, that has worked so far.

I received this email from Chris Pearson, you may have as well:

 

The Thesis License Key system has been active for about a week now, and while most everything has gone smoothly, I have encountered a specific update conflict that is preventing some sites from receiving automatic updates on Skins or Boxes:

If your site is running any Boxes or Skins from third-party provider BYOB Website, these components are guaranteed to cause an update conflict with Thesis 2.9.10+.

In other words, if any Boxes or Skins from BYOB Website are active, your site will not receive automatic updates on Thesis Skins or Boxes.

The short term solution is to deactivate these Skins or Boxes, perform updates, and then reactivate them.

The longer term solution is to move away from BYOB Website Skins and Boxes altogether (or until they update their components, which seems unlikely at this point).

You may also wish to drop by the forums to discuss this issue with other Thesis/Focus users. I know Boxes from BYOB Website have been popular in the past, so many people will be looking for acceptable ways to remove them or to provide similar functionality without relying on them in the future.

 

So it certainly looks like Rick won't be back, at least not any time soon. We already decided not to renew with him, and are looking at alternatives.

 

Thanks to both of you for all the help you have given me during my time with Agility.

PS - We have purchased Focus for one site to try it out. For that site, I have completely removed all of Agility. I assumed I no longer need Agility if I'm using Focus. Any thoughts on that? I'll check in the DIYThemes forum too.

All you need is Focus. Remove Agility.

Beware of adding any BYOB boxes they are causing problems with updates at this stage.
