Client wants to bring an old site out of hiberation.
On examination their last iterations were Genesis 2.10.0 and one of the very old (but pretty robust themes, Agency, Lexicon, Education etc.
Updating to Genesis 3.3.5 breaks all of these.
(a) Anyone know of simple workaround(s) for this situation?
(b) Any comments on security hazards using those old themes and old Genesis ver?
- might it be better to test one of the 3rd party free Genesis themes, or are they a bit fraught security-wise?
Any advice greatly appreciated; client is a charity, and like most charities counting every dollar - we can chip in a few hours at no charge but that's our limit, sadly.
Genesis removed support for the old XHTML themes with the release of V.3. They won't work with the newer versions of Genesis. YOu either have to change to a modern HTML5 theme or reverrt back to the last 2.x version of the framework.
Thanks Victor - greatly appreciated.
I guess the leading question then becomes:
What are potential security hazards in running a 2.x version of framework.
