Warning: Newb question. 

 

I'm keeping this website for a non-profit and this is my first experience jumping off Wordpress.com to .org.  I just bought this theme about a week or two ago and I have gotten this website pretty much the way I want it.  So...what happens if I DON'T update?  I don't feel comfortable doing that yet...When I am ready to take the plunge, what will happen if I do?  Will there be a hiccup if I wait until the NEXT update?  Is there any downtime while it's updating?  When you say lose customizations, does that mean what I put in for CSS changes or also plugins and everything else? 

 

If this isn't the correct place to ask, please let me know.  Thanks.

where did i say that?

 

All options are stores in the database, so unless you have edited core files you are safe to upgrade.

 

As it says on the wordpress update screen, its always advisable to make backups as every server is different.

Unfortunately this seemed to introduce have a number of CSS breaks (or at least undesirable changes). What is involved in the "redner_css_posix_" change? Here's what the top of my page used to look like:

Now here's what it looks like:

It says that in the theme, right where I'm supposed to click to update if I want to...so I'm assuming that to be you all saying that. 

Themes

The following themes have new versions available. Check the ones you want to update and then click “Update Themes”.

Please Note: Any customizations you have made to theme files will be lost. Please consider using child themes for modifications.

 

 

The only changes I have made so far (that I can recall) have only been in my custom css page.  Same place they were  before I updated to the paid version.  So, if I update at some point, hopefully they will stay the same.  I did make one change in the css from another page where a plugin required some additonal stress on my part, but I decided not to use it in the end anyway.  It wouldn't matter if that changed.

 

I have downloaded an update, but I still don't feel comfortable doing this yet until I'm more familiar with the product.  Just hoping later on if I do decide to upgrade I won't break anything by skipping this one.

@ksnyde if you have a specific css issue you should open a support topic.

 

No CSS was added or modified in this small maintenance release.

 

The filter was added for people running windows or servers without POSIX extensions installed in PHP so they can bypass the check and force the css filemode to work, no guarantees it will work but it might help them. People on hosts with normal PHP have nothing to fear.

Hi, I'm a newbie to Pagelines and it is going well. I will shortly be moving my localhost copy over to a hosted server. The current version of wordpress there is 3.2.1. I have an option to upgrade it to Wordpress 3.5. What is Pagelines position in relation to this new release?

@ksnyde,

 

Did you also update bbPress? There was an update of bbPress and Buddypress today as well.

@Tappy Pagelines is fine with wordpress 3.5, you'll need to check any third party plugins you're using though.

I'm not using bbPress / Buddypress. I'll have to look into this next week when things are bit less hectic.

Ok yes, I should have opened a support ticket. Sorry. I also see looking at my logs that the changes are quite small. Quite surprised they're having such large effect on my styling. I'll have to troubleshoot next week.

Hi @simon_P

This is very useful to people who use Godaddy (like me)

POSIX functions can not be used on the host shared Godaddy (they informed me)

:(

This work fine to me.

Many Thanks.

@ksnyde: FWIW the issues with your CSS could be due to changes made in the Bootstrap Framework as opposed to anything implemented by Pagelines. I recently discovered a significant amount of font-size, line-height, and margin changes when we upgraded from Twitter Bootstrap 2.0X to 2.2.2. Very maddening.
