I’m not a web site designer or a coder. So the most important thing to me is that maintaining my site is as simple as possible.
I want upgrades to be seamless – to cause as little disruption as possible.
You can see where I’m going with this – can’t you.
Thesis 2 may be the way forward and offer some great tools. All very good if you are starting out afresh with Thesis – but for those of us on older versions – there’s going to be a fair bit of work to convert.
Thesis 2 looks to be almost a total re-design. If you’re upgrading from one of the earlier versions your site design won’t be converted for use in Thesis 22.214.171.124 – you will instead have a choice of two templates to start with. Take note your site design won’t be converted
If like me you download, upgrade and then realise you’ll need to reconfigure your site – don’t worry – it’s very easy to revert back to your original version.
So I’ve decided to stick with Thesis 1.84b for the moment – I love it – it’s great – the interface is easy to use and straightforward. Much of the reason I chose Thesis in the first place.
Thesis 126.96.36.199 looks very powerful but for the moment I’ll keep it in a development site and play with it a while – till I have time get used to it.
