Hi folks. I have Metro Pro 2.2.2 installed.
(We started with Metro many years ago.)
I've lost track with all the recent updates.
• What is the most recent version of the Genesis framework that is safe to use with Metro Pro 2.2.2?
• And is Metro Pro 2.2.2 compatible with WordPress 5.2+ ?
• Is Metro Pro 2.2.2 still considered a current and useful theme?
Most recent version: Genesis Framework 3.0.2
Compatible with WordPress 5.2+: Yes
Is Metro Pro 2.2.2 still considered a current and useful theme? That's a subjective question that only you can answer. Do you find Metro Pro 2.2.2 current and useful for your needs and those of your target audience?
Thanks. What I meant about "current and useful" was not asking a subjective question. I recall that when I looked into doing upgrades last year (back when the impending launch of 5.0 and Gutenberg had everyone in a tizzy), I was told that Metro was end-of-life. Now I see Metro Pro is current. But perhaps my problem is the site I'm asking about is built on the old Metro (not Pro) theme? It's using:
Metro child theme v1.0
The Admin area is also indicating that I can only upgrade Genesis to 2.2.1
So it looks like I was wrong. Maybe Metro Pro 2.2.2 was just a test install and the child theme that's actually active is quite old and not Pro.
This child theme has been significantly customized, so I can't just swap in Metro Pro and expect it to work. Sigh. It's looking like a total rebuild. Some aspects of the current site have broken, like blog pagination.
