I have attempted to update from v2.6 (on a child theme) to v2.9 which has failed.
Could you advise where the documentation is for upgrades please?
If you could provide some help that would be great too.
Basically I downloaded the new updated theme files and renamed the folder from ‘extinct’ to ‘extinct_2.9’, changed the style.css line from ‘Theme Name: Extinct’ to ‘Theme Name: Extinct_2.9’ then zipped it and uploaded it.
I then pointed the child theme to the new theme.
I was hoping that this would enable me to keep the old theme there to fall back on.
When it was uploaded the css scrambled. I then did a fall back and removed the folder I uploaded (extinct_2.9) and changed the child theme back.
Now there is no info on the pages when on the website? The home page shows ok though?
I would advice you to change the old directory to extinct_2.6 and then reinstall the theme into extinct directory (instead of naming it as extinct_2.9). That should work better. Can you give a try and revert back to me in case of trouble?
For updating we generally recommend the plugin mentioned above and we use the same ourselves. I guess we need such a function to be part of the theme itself. Will explore the option of Envato toolkit which helps manage updates.
