Has anyone attempted upgrading to 3.5? I would like to try it for a client but don’t want to cause a huge headache for myself.
Thanks!December 22, 2012 at 7:55 am #101420
We didn’t receive any bug reports regarding the incompatibility with WP3.5 yet. Thus Display 2.0.3 should be compatible with WP3.5.

I had a problem but I am on Display 1.4. I tried to upgrade “Display” but the download package on Themeforest doesn’t come with all of the files. I tried to install and it failed. The issue I had upgrading was that in my video portfolio, anytime you click on a video it takes the whole page to YouTube instead of opening in the lightbox even I changed nothing in the Display controls.January 4, 2013 at 4:02 am #101422
What didn’t you get when you downloaded from Themeforest? Can you try re-downloading the whole package again.
You’ll definitely need to be on 2.0.3 so that we are working with the same version.

I tried I downloaded the “Display” package again from Theme Forest and tried to install the Theme and it said it failed because it was missing file “style.css.” I tried downloading it and installing on both a PC and a MAC and the same thing happened.January 4, 2013 at 6:26 pm #101424
The package you download from themeforest should be a single large zip file. You’ll need to first unzip that file and then inside it should be another file called Display.zip (or just Display but its a zipped file).
That second file is the actual theme file.January 5, 2013 at 4:04 pm #101425
Thanks Devin! When I try the second ZIP it still fails but now it’s because there is already a theme with the same name. Is there a simple way to upgrade that won’t jack up my site? I’m a bit of a noob. I know I could delete my current version but that makes me nervous. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In this case try to install the theme manually. Use a ftp client like filezilla to access your server directories – navigate to wp-content/themes and upload the uncompressed display theme folder into this folder. I’d make a backup of the “old” theme folder first (eg rename display to display_bak and upload the new theme files).January 18, 2013 at 5:35 pm #101427
I upload the files the way you suggested and it works again! Many thanks. One more quick question. Is there a way to limit the paragraph lengths in the three “featured posts” on the home page. I would like to be able to tell the when to display the “More” link. That way I can limit the vertical size of the home page.January 21, 2013 at 8:06 am #101428
Yes, you can use the more quicktag: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More , http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/ to split your content into an excerpt and full version.
