[SOLVED] Upgrading

Hi There,

I am currently running WordPress v3.0.3 and want to upgrade to 3.2.1. Here is the thing, I am currently using the Atahualpa v3.5.3 and would also like to upgrade to 3.6.7. However, all this talk in the forums about No custom PHP code anymore. I am concerned about just willy nilly upgrading to v3.2.1 and seeing what happens. I am worried my site will just not work anymore.

My question is this. What are your suggested upgrade steps to bring my site up-to-date?

Step 1 - backup your database and wp-contents folder

Do you have any custom php in the options? If not, then do the upgrades - remember to copy any header images back to the header folder.

If you do, manually copy the theme to a new folder (see the post in the FAQ about upgrading) so you can switch between the two versions. Then you can check it out and swap back and forth.

You could also copy the site to a 'playground' or test site and test it out

Hi juggledad,

Thank-you for the quick response.

When you asked the question about custom php in the options? I am not exactly certain how to answer this. I may have altered some CSS, and i did something awhile back that added the "Search" box into the Menu bar, but I am not certain where that is...

How can I tell looking at the options if I have custom php?

I believe this is how I got the Search in the Menu Bar.

div.searchbox {
position: absolute;
top: 130px;
right: 25px;
}
div.searchbox input.text {
border: none;
padding: 2px 15px 2px 3px;
background: #fff url('<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/search2.gif') no-repeat right center;
-moz-border-radius: 5px;
-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 5px;
height: 15px;
bolder: solid 1px #e7e7e7;
font-size: 11px;
}

However, since 3.6.5 PHP code cannot be used anymore in HTML/CSS Inserts. How can I achieve this same result in the new version of Atahualpa? http://www.medeirosrmt.com/

that's not php, that is CSS and it is fine and will work in 3.6.7

Hi juggledad,

Thank-you again for the reply.

I did as you suggested and created a testing.medeirosrmt.com site and installed the latest version of Wordpress and Atahualpa. Note on this site, the CCS code I posted does work accept, the search graphic in the text box does not appear. I also noticed some differences with cForms II, ie. the buttons don't appear the same, and the menu bar does not span the entire browser area.

I exported the Atahualpa options and imported them into the latest version. Note the differences from www.medeirosrmt.com and testing.medeirosrmt.com.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew
