    Hi, I’m waaay behind the times on updating my theme but need to make my website http://www.hatstandopera.co.uk responsive. The upgrade instructions say I need to replace the Dynamix theme files and overwrite the existing,m but surely that will remove/reset all my modifications? Sorry to be such a dunce, but I’m mot sure how to proceed. Thanks!

    Hi Kirsty,

    That’s a pretty old version 😉

    It is going to involve some work to update it. The current version is almost completely different to that version. The shortcodes may not work now, as it uses a very different system.

    The best thing to do is to download the new version and rename it to DynamiX_new, upload that via FTP and then in the WordPress admin, temporarily switch to it to see how it looks. If it involves too much work at this stage, you can switch back to the older version.
