I need to update because of some glitches, but Ive spent a year tweaking all the code within corona here and there to make my site exactly how I want.
If i just replace all these documents with the new files, wont i lose all my edits? I went far beyond just editing custom.css
Haven’t you worked with child themes?
If not, I can suggest the workaround of comparing the files of CORONA on the server with the new downloaded CORONA original files with NOTEPAD++.
It has a plugin, to compare two files and mark the changes with different colours, so that you can easily and quickly see the changes.
I have done this in the past and it worked fine. Not the best way, I guess – but it’s a way …
You can do as colorit2 has suggest but you can also look at the version file in the main package you get from themeforest for all the changed files.
If you don’t have an accurate changelog of the changes you have made along the way, you can also work on diagnosing any individual bug you have one on one with a developer. It isn’t ideal as you’ve already purchased the theme and Kriesi has probably fixed the bug.
The best solution in your situation is comparing the files you have changed with those of the updates. If you don’t know which, the a full on comparison with all of the files listed in the version since your version is the next best thing.
Okay I followed your instructions and made all the changes from 1.5, but it’s the first update I’ve done since like 1.2. Since I didn’t make all the changes in between there, will they be updated with 1.3?
One thing I’ve noticed is that my the pagination of the blog at metropolitandetail.com still doesn’t work!
