Just got a call from my client that none of the subpage drop down menus are working. I've done no changes except to upgrade to 3.5 WordPress. Any ideas?
It looks like some jQuery is broken;
Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: ul.sf-menu .dd-tab li.current_page_item > a, ul.sf-menu .dd-tab li.current-cat > a, ul.sf-menu .dd-tab li.current-menu-item > a, ul.sf-menu li.current_page_item.dd-tab > a, ul.sf-menu li.current-cat.dd-tab > a, ul.sf-menu li.current-menu-item.dd-tab > a, ul.sf-menu li.current_page_item.regular-tab > a, ul.sf-menu li.current-cat.regular-tab > a, ul.sf-menu li.current-menu-item.regular-tab > a, jquery.js:2
Port error: Could not establish connection. Receiving end does not exist. miscellaneous_bindings:235
Look at the known issues section of the WordPress 3.5 Troubleshooting guidelines.
Thanks for that quick reply and I'm looking at the guidelines noted and your message and it is totally greek to me. Is there no "quick fix?"
The "quick fix' is easy - upgrade to the latest version of Suffusion.
Thank Sayontan. I'm a bit gun shy. The last client who I upgraded the Suffusion theme for lost ALL customization. But...
As long as you've made customisations separate from the theme, not changed the theme's files, your changes will not be compromised.
Hey Andrew, I'm not sure what you mean "separate" or "not changed the theme's files," isn't that where you'd normally do the customization? Inside the "editor" files, such as the sytlesheet, etc?
Thanks so very much for your time.
Yes, that was where I would normally do the customisations. It's only until I looked at some WordPress.org forum threads that I realised I had been doing it wrong. For example, look at WPYogi's response in this recent thread.
If you edit files in the editor, then yes, your changes will get hosed. That isn't anything to do with Suffusion or any WP theme - it is just how WP operates.
So WP's recommended solution to keep you upgrade-proof is to use a child theme (that works pretty well with Suffusion).
However, for those who don't want to create a child theme for whatever reason, Suffusion offers you the capability to put in custom styles (under Suffusion Options → Back-End → Custom Includes → Custom Styles). These are stored in the database, and they stick with you through all theme upgrades. In fact this provision has been present in Suffusion for more than 3 years - long before JetPack even existed as a plugin.
Thanks to all. This particular client didn't have as much customization as the other, so I was able to upgrade Suffusion and only lost the navigation text color - an easy fix.
And the WP upgrade didn't effect the heavily customized site at all, thank goodness.
Again, thanks to all for you help and your time.
And thanks dkchi2010 for contributing to the WordPress.org community.
Really, it helps others a lot.
