You'll need to use a program like winmerge to check your header and footer files against each other. 2.7.5 and 2.8.2 are vastly different. Especially and this brings me to your next point the language translation process.
I've removed the translation process through the constants.php file – it now has a .mo system. See this new screencast. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr4Z5AEoUzk
The first time translating will be a slightly long process but I'm hoping that once someone has done the translation for that language I'll include it with the updates.
Ok I'll look at doing a screencast for the Child Theme then. The reason I haven't is because it's a wordpress function – it's something that information can be found in google -> wordpress child theme.
Andy, upgraded the theme – again – and now my footer is totally messed up:
http://obxbrides.com – any ideas?
I for one am totally lost with the child theme thing – I upgraded both folders – main & child, just in case. But now, the footer seems to be left-aligned and not centered.
And if I already have CSS changes in the main theme – should I transport those to the child? Does it mean I dont have to upgrade the child theme folder ever?
Ugh… this upgrading process is not my favorite 😉
The Child theme is there to protect your customisations from future Dynamix upgrades. you do all your css customisations in your Child Theme, then when Andy brings out a new version of the theme, and you upgrade, it won't mess up all your customisations.
For the first time you will need to go through the Child theme style sheet and apply all your CSS changes, but once you've done it once, you'll never have to worry about it again, and whent he next version of dynamix comes out you'll be able to upgrade without any trouble, we do it on all our themes and it works like a dream.
Ok, Followed Andy's advice, and googled child theme. Here are the better links that I found. These of-course don't have anything to do with DynamiX, but give a good overview of how child these work.
Hope thes help.
