A while ago I was working on a theme that was frustrating me to no end.

I was working on it in one browser and it was coming together nicely. A handful of simple template and CSS edits and all the basic structure and layout was there and functioning as it should.

I then went to have a look in other browsers before moving forward with the other details and discovered one were the panels would not stay where they were suppoed to be. I tried for quite a while and could not get it to work properly when viewing it with that browser so left it alone for a while.

After I upgraded to version 6 I ran the file integrity scanner with theme upgrades, had a look at that theme and it was fixed!

You are right Brian, the Upgrader is Totally Awesome!

Although it may not work as well for all themes, my own experience has been excellent.

I hesitated a lot before upgrading my “classroom site” from 5.0.3 to 6.0 final after some difficulties to get it working with the 6 beta series. I’m using 5 custom “Themes” to layout my virtual classrooms across the site with several comcode pages attached to each.

Today I was committed to upgrade; I started prepared with several redundant backups, plus MySql databases exports, plus up to the minute theme exports.

The process went without a glitch including automatic themes upgrade during the file integrity check.
My site is now running 6.0 final with all themes smoothly integrated.

An Impressive ocPortal Upgrader made my day! :thumbs:
