Hi (especially juggledad)
ATA 3.6.4 WP 3.1.2
Is manual update still the preferred method of updating from 364 to latest version ???
I have uploaded header images and added contents at "add html/css inserts" in theme options as well as altered numerous other 'things' in options.

Both Juggledad and I prefer the manual method to update. It gives us a level of comfort to know that if something isn't right with the new version you can just switch back.

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
I always do my updates manually - If you have custom header mages, they will get wiped out with an automatic upgrade and if you manually install the release in a folder called atahualpa367 you can have both in the theme picker, so you can swap back if something is not working.

In 3.6.7 most custom PHP will not work in the theme options and there are a couple BUGFIX's already

I have followed the above sound advice for sometime now, manual updates only, for both WP and Atahualpa theme, and it only takes up a few minutes of ones time.

It's great to be able to switch back to a previous version of Atahualpa theme, for whatever reason.

Thanks everyone

I will set some time aside next week and follow juggledads procedure (with my fingers crossed in case I screw up - not the instructions)

Most everyone is a bit anxious the first few times they do upgrades but after a few you will start to get comfortable.
