Just wanted to report an issue that may or may not still be in Agility 3.  I am running:

Thesis:  2.2.41
WP: 4.7
Skin:  Agility 3.1.01

I have created numerous custom templates to try and get exactly what I want for some pages.  One specific change is creating a new header, using "Agility Easy Header" and naming it "Back Office Header" (for example).  Once template is saved, "Back Office Header" will show up in the "Thesis Content" listing, which allows selection of how many columns and what is placed in each column.  It is when I change this that several templates just disappear from the Skin Editor.  No trace of them.  It is like they were deleted.  The pages that they were assigned to no longer functioned.  Since my site is not completely live, it was not as bad as it could have been.  But unfortunately I did not have a backup, as I had just been creating and testing.  So, I had to rebuild them again.  I had not figured out what I did just prior to the templates disappearing, so I backed up between any real changes.  When then stumbled across the changes to the "Thesis Content" again and this time realized that this was the issue.  I was able to restore with minimal lose this time, and I now just don't change anything in the "Thesis Content" without a backup first.  But I would hate for others to suffer from such losses if this bug has not been reported and fixed yet.

Any questions you might have let me know.  I would like to help get this worked out so Agility 3 is rock solid.  Love using it with Thesis.  Ultimate flexibility.

Let me know if bug is even still present and if you need anything else.

Thanks.

This is a bug that was fixed yesterday - to solve it, download the latest version - which is 3.1.0.2

To your instructions to:

1 - Download a fresh copy of Agility - now 3.1.0.2

2 - Delete the installed version

3 - Install the new version

4 - Restore the custom templates using Agility Template Restore

5 - Save your Skin Design options

Add a step 1.1 - Save your Thesis Custom CSS file (copy & paste to text file for restoring after upgrade)

Add a step 6 - Copy your custom CSS text back to the Thesis Custom CSS file and "Save" it.

I mention this because my Custom CSS was reset to a prior version for some reason, and I lost several hours of modifications that I had to recreate.  I should have known better.  I normally save to another file to prevent this.

It would be nice if Thesis did this in their "Backup" process for the skin, since the custom CSS is tied to the skin in use.

If I am missing something, let me know.

Hmmm, I didn't realize that Thesis didn't back up Custom CSS.

Thanks for alerting me to that.
