Theme Security Question (2 posts)

    I just updated from version 2.9 to 3.3.1 using the default theme with a few customizations to the style sheet and footer.php, header.php. As I am not good with php coding I didn't mess with any thing else, however the theme is still the default (Kubrick I believe) theme and not the newer ones I see included now with the update. Should I be concerned about any security issues with the old default theme. If so, can anyone point me to where I can find out how to secure the default theme in line with current themes? I have tried to look through various files with winmerge to compare with the newer themes but again I have little knowledge of php so I cannot determine what is good and what is bad.

  2. *Huh, "child theme it" really has become my answer to almost everything...*

    If you want to play it safe (safe it good) download a current copy of the Kubrick theme and make a child theme of that.


    This way when updates occur for that theme, you only need to worry about your footer.php and header.php files. All the rest will be updated.
