    Hi all,

    I have to downgrade my version of WordPress from version 2.2 to 2.0.10 due to issues with the mySQL version on our host.

    I would like to know, can I copy the themes I created for version 2.2 into version 2.0?

    Are themes backwards compatible?

    Hmm.. If you created them - you are the one who should know!

    Some template tags are not the same for v2.0.x and 2.2.x

    EDIT. And try to keep it in one single thread - you may end up with deleted post if you post it more than once!

    I'm not sure what that means, no need to be patronizing...

    I went ahead and tried it myself and to answer my own question, no - themes are not backwards compatible.

    >> EDIT. And try to keep it in one single thread

    There were several different questions in each thread, which is why no-one has answered the others.

    I saw all the threads.. and actually was going to answer the first one, until you started splitting them up.

    Like I always get told -- dont assume.
