Steps we performed:
dump database, then search and replace all local urls with live urls and load to production database.
tar the entire local wp
-installation and untar at production. made necessary changes to wp
With other themes this was all we had to do. But did not work with this theme. Seems like dynamic css values are not getting set correctly. We also tried exporting the settings and importing them to the production site. Which fixed a lot of look and feel and of course we had broken images due to references to local urls. We opened the .dat file with netbeans, edited the urls, saved and re-imported it but did not work either.
This theme is a great tool but there has to be an easy way to migrate from local dev to production. Is there any documentation out there that we can follow? Are we missing any steps?
