I'm working on a website that has horribly outdated software--WordPress 3.2.2, Genesis 1.8.1, and a customized Going Green theme 1.0.1--and I want to update everything to the most current version. The look and functionality of the site should be essentially unchanged when it's running the updated software.
I can readily handle the upgrade for WordPress and Genesis--the problem is picking out the customizations made on the old theme, whether CSS or PHP or JS. Yes, the eyeball test would show where to tweak the CSS, but that would miss any differences in underlying functionality.
My ideal workflow would be to identify the file differences between the customized Going Green theme on my project site and the original Going Green theme 1.0.1. That would allow me to quickly focus on the customizations that I need to replicate or find substitutes for in the updated theme.
I've only recently become a Genesis user, so I don't have a library of old themes downloaded that I can refer to nor memories of how things worked in the olden days that I can draw on. I also expect that I will be needing to do a similar process for other clients. Where can I get access to old versions of themes?
I'm sure I'm not the first person to encounter this problem and I'd welcome suggestions on other ways to make a multi-version upgrade like this.
