I have a handle on how to use a child theme with the PageLines framework, and I have been upgrading Frameworks from 1.4.5 to 2.4.4. Most of the time, this goes without a hitch. But in one case, I can't get the child theme to function properly; instead, all styles appear to be broken. Reverting Frameworks restores the whole site properly.
Here's how I have been doing this, and as I said this has worked flawlessly on most hosts:
- Upload 2.4.4 beside 1.4.5 theme folder
- Rename 1.4.5 folder (e.g. pagelines1)
- Rename 2.4.4 folder (to pagelines)
I don't use any special caching plugins on this particular site. The flawless upgrade of most other sites (on BlueHost, true to form) makes me suspect something with this other host (Hosting Matters, not my choice) but I'm not sure where to start investigating that.
I have 'updated' my child theme to include the setup.php, functions.php files as recommended, to load Framework core. I don't get an 'unable to load…' error on the admin side.
Any tips, advice would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. My immense thanks and kudos to the PageLines team for this amazing WP theming system. I've tried DMS but I'm accustomed to Frameworks and can accomplish a lot with it.
