Hi..

I forgot to do the bug fixes in my manual install of ATA 3.7.3..


Do I have to apply them in the Host File Manager (which is a real PIA due to encoding options and all)....


or can I just apply them in the WP Dashboard in the ATA Theme editor...

Thanks ..


I would encourage anyone reading this post to do a manual upgrade instead of the automatic...


I usually do the automatic and did the manual for the first time. It is actually easy once you get familiar with it...


AND, in case something changes or you forget to upload or change something that you had done in the previous version, you have the ability to fall back on the old working version while you figure it out...


and speaking of figuring out...I think an important point to bring up is...Yopu will need to reset your menus in the WP dashboard...


The menus will still be there, just enter the page or cat menu in the dropdown and save the menu list that is there from the old site and you7r menu bars will work again...


I think that should be added to the "manual update" instructions....as it was the only thing that changed on the site when the new version went live and confused me for a bit till I figured out what the heck was wrong..(with support help, of course)

Glad I could help in a small way..


BTW, instead of using an FTP...I just rezipped the folder and uploaded through the "Apperance>Themes>install Themes>upload" in the WP dashboard...


Worked great (Larry tried it also, worked for him too)....I think that is important to note in the "manual updates" as I bet many people (me included) have not used an FTP and only use the dashboard for updates and changes...

Hi JD..


that is the one..

All I'm trying to say is that I DL'd the folder (came through zipped), I clicked on the folder, it opened and I saw the file that says MACOSX and bfa-postinfo (PHP File).


I opened the file and saw everything...

So Because I did not have to unzip anything by using extract, I was wondering If I was missing something...

ok, cool...just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing anything wrong...



BTW, on the Bug Fixes that require a certain line replacement...


How are you doing that?..Opening the file and manually counting the lines?..


is there a progream that you can copy/paste into that will number everything?


Thanks

I use a text editor that shows the line numbers. It is called 'textwrangler' and runs on a Mac
