Creating child theme in 1.8 causes loss of column widths
AnonymousAugust 10, 2012 at 4:41 am #31521
Yes, the @import was missing from the child theme.
Saying his site has experienced load times issues with the upgrade to 1.8.. It did take a little while to load (when 1.8 was activated)… but I didn’t have time to determine if it’s theme related or something else.
Immediately after the upgrade to 1.8 I began experiencing slow page loads and “500” errors. Dashboard and normal pages would timeout and when they did load it would be 7 to 10 seconds before the first byte loaded. Memory usage jumped about 15MB and server load was high – even after a reboot. The site is running on a VPS so this was quite out of the ordinary. It is actually the reason I attempted to add the child theme – so I could cut down on the load times a bit.
Including the @import fixed the formatting, but didn’t help load times. Immediately after reverting to 1.7.3 page loads returned to normal.
I’m thinking of trying the update again, but I’m a little cautious as the site needs to be functional on Saturday morning.Admin
