Oh I see - I think I can manage that!
Thank you so VERY much for all your help.May 28, 2021 at 11:51 am in reply to: Advice on removing framework and old theme and replacing with new #504150
Hi Anita, and thank you so much again.
The XML option feels like a bridge too far for me, as I'm not at all familiar with that! It seems as close as I can get to a clean slate, the better, not knowing exactly where the problem is. So, I think I'll proceed as planned and if needed, do a whole new WP install as you suggest. I have actually copy-and-pasted all my content, listed my categories, plug-ins, etc. as a very old school back up, should I end up needing to do that. It looks like there'll be a sizeable new learning curve in any event, what with all the changes to WP and Genesis since I was last active, so reentering it all will be part and parcel of that - and for me, the easiest part!May 28, 2021 at 6:05 am in reply to: Advice on removing framework and old theme and replacing with new #504147
Thank you so much - that's greatly appreciated, and encouraging.
I've checked in my hosting service and selected the latest php version available there, which is 7.3.28, and set it to auto update. They say they'll soon be updating sites to php 7.4 and provided a url to check compatibility. This unfortunately returns an error message regarding a missing Mysql extension. Trying to find some help on that, it seems it's possibly because my WordPress version is so old?
Should I hope that this is the case and go ahead as planned?
I appreciate that php is not a Studiopress issue as such, but thought I would mention in it in case you have some quick and easy thoughts.
