Upgrade Thesis / Themedy Themes Process

Upgrading a Thesis / Themedy site (Doesn't apply to Genesis users)

1. Activate Thesis from your Appearance -> Themes section - don't leave our child theme running while upgrading Thesis

2. Upgrade Thesis: http://diythemes.com/thesis/downloads/upgrade/

Once you have the new version of Thesis successfully running you have a couple options:

3. Open style.css included with your Themedy theme and near the top (yes it is the commented out area) change thesis_18X (where X is the old Thesis version number) to thesis_18Y (where Y is the new Thesis version number) - Note this block repersents where Thesis is located in your wp-content/themes folder - if you have Thesis running in a folder called "thesis" then that's what you would change it to instead.

4. That should be enough for existing sites, now just reactivate the Themedy theme and check your Thesis options to make sure you are running on the new version. Check your Thesis options to make sure you are on the new version, if not deactivate and reactivate the Themedy theme.

If you also want to upgrade to the latest version of your Themedy theme:
5. Download the new Themedy theme that supports your current version of Thesis from it's download thread in the forum. If you have made no changes to you existing files you can just delete the older version and upload the new theme files.

6. If you have made changes to custom.css custom_functions.php or any other file make sure to backup those up first, so you can move them over to the new version! Once you have them backed up just upload the new theme files and enter your changes again.

Note: custom/custom.css and custom/custom_functions.php don't have to be overwritten when upgrading if you upgrade using FTP instead of through the WordPress -> Appearance panel - we highly recommend learning / using FTP for upgrades.
