Adding a new theme1 user found helpful
I've been using C5 for a couple of years now so know my way around the old version really well. I've just done a clean install of V5.7 and have a couple of queries I haven't been able to find answers to:
1. Can I import the database from used in v18.104.22.168 into the database needed for v5.7 or do they not have compatible architecture?
2. How on earth do you add your own theme??? Previously it was really simple, you uploaded it to the themes folder and then installed it through the dashboard. I've added my own theme in the themes folder, but can't for the life of me find out how to install it.....infact it doesn't even show up anywhere to be installed....
As for themes, unsure. I'll install the released version and take a look for you.
I suspected as much re: the database situation.
If you please give me your opinion on the theme installation that would be great, thanks.
I got to the end of the video you linked and hadn't seen anything about the grid stuff. Oops.
Haven't spent the majority of today making a shed ton of page layouts for a clients newly responsive'ifed website. The fact we're running 5.6 and not 5.7 makes me really jealous because I need no more like.. 3 with 5.7.
This is wicked.
Thanks for your video - from what I can see the only difference to setting up your own theme with v5.7 is that the homepage now uses a file called full.php rather than index.php...is that right - it worked for me anyway :)
My theme has installed and is looking as great as it did in the older version.
I wonder if anyone has an opinion on the general use of v5.7 vs the older version? At the moment I'm inclined to continue using the older version for client work simply because it works well and all my favourite add-ons work with it. Once v5.7 (which I think is great by the way from what I've seen so far) has add-ons in the market place I will move over to that for my client work (meanwhile I can fiddle around with it in my own time to familiarize myself.
Also another question I have for any of the C5 team is that how long will the older version be supported?
If it can't load the file that it tries to load, it will fall back to loading default.php (which is the same behavior as in 5.6.)
