Style Advice Before XF 1.2 Upgrade

    Just a quick question about how to proceed before upgrading (a local test environment).

    The style I use is tied to parent style not activated.

    If I simply export this into an install locally then I get this mess ...

    I do not know how to merge the parent and child style ... is that even possible?

    My questions are:
    1. Should I fix the style before doing the upgrade to XF 1.2 or after?
    2. Should I upgrade locally and build a whole new style which is not dependent on a parent?
    What do you think?

    It wasn't in 1.1. I haven't tried it yet in 1.2.

    Without a merge option you need to export/import the parent and child individually and keep the same parent/child relationship after you import them.

    Parent/child doesn't matter. But you need a style that is compatible with 1.2. Ideally this should be prepared before you upgrade your live forum so you can quickly import the fixed style.

    HWS, LPH and Jake Bunce like this.

    Thank you both. I have the style working locally so it'll be ready when XF 1.2 Gold is ready.
