    Dear MH theme team,
    Firstly, thank you for your lovely theme.
    My website thebrightlamp.com runs on your theme. My theme version is 1.5.5 and wordpress version is 3.7.1. I intend to upgrade wordpress to 3.9. Is the 1.5.5 version compatible to wordpress 3.9? Where can I check that?
    Also, I've made a lot of customizations to the theme, so will upgrading the theme cause issues? Similarly will there be trouble if I upgrade to a the responsive/premium verison?
    Thank you

    Hi ramyaniyer,

    My theme version is 1.5.5 and wordpress version is 3.7.1. I intend to upgrade wordpress to 3.9. Is the 1.5.5 version compatible to wordpress 3.9?

    Yes - usually there should not be any problems with the theme and WordPress 3.9.

    Where can I check that?

    You could setup a test installation and test WP 3.9 first before updating your production site.

    Also, I've made a lot of customizations to the theme, so will upgrading the theme cause issues?

    If you did not use a child theme (or the custom CSS box) for your customizations and have modified any core theme files, then your changes will be lost after a theme update.

    Similarly will there be trouble if I upgrade to a the responsive/premium verison?

    The premium version of the theme has much more features and options and also a different codebase. So in the end it is actually more a new theme which you will have to install on your site.

    Have a great weekend!

    Regards
    Michael

    Thank you so much for your helpful and prompt response Michael. I am thinking of upgrading to the responsive theme which will enable to me to render a nice-looking website for all screens. I am hoping that there are similarities in the lite and responsive themes.
