Is Framework V2.3 misisng the core CSS codig in the style.css file? It appears this is the case - as I have attempted a brand new WP install, and with no other plugins, installing V2.3 and activating it leaves a broken page layout and no styling. adding base child theme, and then alternatively loading "simplicate" child theme (purcased form pagelines store) also result in broken page layout and styling.

I have had to go back to V2.1 (but that has a javascript conflict in the admin area (settings pages)... sigh.)

Hi there, the framework is now 100% LESS so you'll have a style.less sheet now. I've checked the link you've provided and the site seems to be displaying fine, have you managed to resolve this?

The site is not the one being developed. That one is online but hidden to non-lodded in visitors.

And had missed the bit about LESS.... and know nothing about it (except the site does not display usefully)... so without time to go up that learning curve (it doesn't work out of the box at all!) I'dd stay back on legacy versions.

The conversion from style.css to style.less created a few minor changes in some css elements. If you had any previous custom CSS, you might see some variation on the way your site looks. It should be relatively easy to reset the changed code by hacking a #page in front of it. You can test that using Firebug or Chrome's Inspection tools.

While it's easy to roll back to 2.2.5, at some point updating will be essential.

That's definitely strange to hear your having such trouble after the upgrade. I have installed 2.3 myself on several sites and haven't had any problem with it yet.

Perhaps your files were corrupted when you downloaded 2.3? Have you tried re-downloading it? If not, definitely give that a try.

A quick comment about LESS - it's a dynamic stylesheet language that compiles into CSS, but pure css is still A-OK to use, so you don't need to learn anything extra unless you want to. LESS is really handy and a very cool newer feature of the framework - since 2.0!

Thanks for the repsonses everyone. Moved to a new server and found it was something in the configuration which I don't understand... but suddenly, hey presto, fixed - simply imported the cPanel account, then auo-updated thetheme framework from legacy to latest, and all works like a charm. I am *assuming* it was the hosting environment.

At ay rate, topic closed but without any insights sorry.
