Updating Old Theme

    #51732

    We are currently using Version: 1.9.4.2.

    We want to upgrade to the latest version but when we do the layout of our site breaks and things look different.

    Is there any type of update path or recommendations we should follow so our site looks the same after we update?

    And yes, we understand that our current theme is very old!

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The layout issue is likely due to the significant changes between the latest version of Graphene, and version 1.9.4.2. The changes are more than cosmetic and goes down to the structural level, in order to support modern web features and compatibility with many different device form factors.

    I would suggest to make a copy of the site, and perform the update on that copy. Any layout issues can then be addressed and fixed on the site’s copy, without affecting the live website. When everything is ready, you can then transfer the copy back into the live website.
