I have read through the 3.6 upgrade thread at https://kriesi.at/support/topic/wordpress-36#post-129724
I just want to make sure I understand it correctly. To successfully do the 3.6 upgrade I need to:
1. Re-download the Enfold file from themeforest.
2. Connect to my site via FTP
3. Consult the change log at the URL listed above and FTP all the folders listed therein into my site.
Please let me know if there is something I’m not understanding or something else that needs to be done.
You will only need to update the specific files if you have already modified the theme files directly. If you’ve not opened them up and edited them for some reason then you can just upgrade following my video here: https://vimeo.com/channels/aviathemes/67209750
Just make sure you’ve installed Enfold 1.9.1 and 3.6 will work correctly.
The only file that I have modified is the custom.css file. I will ask other members of staff, but to my knowledge no additional theme editing has been performed. After watching your video, it seems like we simply need to make a backup of that file and FTP the new theme to the server. I hope it turns out that simple.
is it better to first upgrade to 3.6 then upgrade the theme, first upgrade the theme and then upgrade to 3.6, or does it not matter?
Order doesn’t matter but I would update Enfold first and then WordPress.
Before doing so also make sure all of your critical plugins for your sites functionality have updates available to bring them up to date for 3.6. If not, you may want to delay on going to 3.6 until they have updates released as well.
