Evidently Going Green Child Theme is retired. I made some changes to our site and noted that the Genesis Framework was an old version. I updated the framework and it broke Going Green. The entire content frame was oddly spaced. The header wasn't painting correctly etc. The style sheet was still active as it wasn't a white page with just text.
I had to restore the themes from a backup.
Does this mean that the theme will no longer support updates?https://www.minasletters.com/
Going Green is an old XHTML based theme. Genesis stopped supporting XHTML themes with the release of Version 3.0 released on June 19, 2019.
If you want to continue using Going Green, the highest version of Genesis you can use is 2.9.1, which you can get here: https://my.studiopress.com/downloads/genesis-archives/
Thanks Victor. Pre Covid-19 I was excited about HTML5 but missed any notifications about XHTML being deprecated and frankly hadn't really connected that Going Green was using XHTML.
Question for you. Will the never ending march to current versions of PhP come into play here? Will this old theme finally reach its end because of server issues?
This is a rarely used blog of my spouse and I plan to redo the theme but its behind some other big projects in terms of priority so it will be a while before I'm done.
"Will the never ending march to current versions of PhP come into play here?"
Probably, I wouldn't upgrade PHP to version 8.x unless all of the components are up to date.
"Will this old theme finally reach its end because of server issues?"
Most likely, yes.
@jbculp Going Green is HTML5. If the site went wonky or weird it was because the update you performed wasn't done in the correct "order". There was an update when WordPress 4.6 was released. If you updated WordPress first - the site went wonky or crashed. Genesis should have been updated first. So you can still perform the update but read this first from Sal. He created a fix on how to update Genesis. If you need help, reach out to me. 🙂
You can also keep up-to-date on changes to the Framework by periodically going the the Changelog which lists all of the changes and why.
Love coffee, chocolate and my Bella!
