** General WordPress 5.0 / Gutenberg Issues **

If you have issues with the new Gutenberg / WordPress 5.0+ features please install the WordPress Classic Editor plugin for now:

** WARNING Thesis Framework and WordPress 5.0 **

There are known issues with the Thesis framework and WordPress 5.0 if you don't install the Classic Editor plugin above BEFORE upgrading to WordPress 5.0 you may get locked out of your site - this is not a Themedy issue.

** Thesis 2.6+ Issues **

There seems to be a bug with the site title and tagline showing after upgrading to 2.6. Try adding this to your Thesis Custom CSS to fix for now: #site_title, #site_tagline {display: none;}

If you are upgrading any site from Thesis 2.3 or lower, the 2.4 upgrade steps below still apply before you can upgrade ANY version of Thesis 2.3 and earlier to ANY version of Thesis 2.4 or higher.

** Thesis 2.4 or Higher Upgrade Steps **

As Thesis 2.4+ is a major update we recommend backing up your site before attempting this upgrade. After the upgrade you may have to run this Thesis fix if your site design looks "out of sorts":

IMPORTANT: When you run the Fix CSS box, check all 4 check-boxes / options it gives you before running.

If you are missing your header image still try these steps: (or download the new version of your skin from here and delete and reinstall it - backup first just in case)

Also make sure you watch this great video to fix script issues:

** Update **
As long as you follow the Thesis update steps closely most people should be fine. If you would rather someone experienced to handle the upgrade for you, we offer paid technical services that can handle it as well.

Speed up homepage load time on Patron

Howdy All,

I'm doing some work on a client website and noticed when I switched his custom slides to Blog Post Slides from the Themedy Settings menu it really slowed the site down. I'm not opposed to going in and making slides for each blog post, but I thought the recent posts slider was a neat feature, but not if its going to slow down the site.

What are some tips/tricks/#imagehacks/#speedhacks I can use to make sure the website doesn't slow down when using this feature? Is there any code I can play with to enhance the #loadtime and if so where would you suggest I start?

Extra question........

Is there possibly a way for me to use the patron theme without having woocommerce installed? Most of my client websites aren't using the woocommerce function, and if I could make the website a little lighter by disabling/removing that plugin it would make me so happy.

I wonder, when I disable woocommerce the button in the upper right disappears, thats the only reason I have woocommerce activated. Would there be a way to keep the button there without having woocommerce activated? What file would you suggest I edit to make that happen?

Thanks in advance for your help!
