The 1.0.1 update broke everything (5 posts)

    Was using 0.9.7.7 with the Sophia child theme. The 1.0.1 update so thoroughly mangled my site that I don't even know where to begin to fix it.

    The header nav links went from a horizontal list to vertical.

    The right sidebar vanished.

    All the post footer content vanished.

    And much more.

    The previous update was a smooth transition that required one minor tweak. What gives?

    I just updated the theme as well and now I get a blank page for my site. Where shall I begin to look?

    Please note that some major maintenance was done to update the theme to WordPress standards. It was necessary to move things forward even if it meant breaking some existing child themes. Please go to http://thematictheme.com/forums for help

    You should revert back to the old version until you get sorted out

    Hi -
    We have about 40 sites built on the thematic framework, and not one broke, though there are some key deprecated items that we need to remedy.

    I think the difference between sites that broke and those that didn't will often come down to filtering problems in functions.php. Keep a careful eye on how you "enqueue" scripts too. I suggest the following steps to help you fix this:

    1. PDF of what's new, organized by sections showing what was changed, deprecated, and new features - http://thematicmondo.com/thematic-theme-framework-update-new-home/
    2. Ask about your problems directly in the new forums here: http://thematictheme.com/forums/forum/thematic-child-themes/custom-child-themes/
    3. Work with the Thematic framework concept and philosophy -- not against it. This means using the style library in CSS, and not using functions.php hacks to go around the system. You can hook into Thematic, work with its placement of menus in the "access" div and build out any design. Here is another guide to help you: http://thematicmondo.com/wp-content/guides/ThematicMondoGuide-1.pdf

    Cheers -
    Scott

    I believe the OP found help from the Thematic community here:

    Aside from that it is up to the child theme author to update the child theme.
