We are require to stay current with WordPress versions. I would like to get a definitive statement on whether Propulsion and the latest WordPress 3.4 works and is supported? It shouldn’t be left to the users to verify whether a theme works! Yes, there may be corner cases that come up, but Support and the developer should test and verify theme. The user can only “assume” it works if Support/developer says nothing, so he/she proceeds to upgrade only to find the site broken.
This brings to the forefront the bigger issue adopting Kriesi themes. Given how prolific Kriesi has been putting out good themes, the question arises as to whether they all can be maintained and supported adequately. Can someone shed some light on how testing is handled? How do you ensure themes will work on new WordPress versions?
I hope you understand that I am not being negative, but hopefully you can understand the concern of suddenly discovering that my theme is no longer support or does not work with the latest WordPress.
Kriesi will release updates for the themes within the next week. Propulsion works with WP3.4 – it only triggers a warning message rigt now which does not affect the functionality at all. If you’re in a hurry deactivate the debug mode: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Debug and you won’t get any error messages.
Re updates in the future: Like all other software products themes have a life cycle too an newer themes will receive more updates than older themes. Unfortunately themeforest themes are low priced and therefore you can’t expect that authors will support it for 3+ years. However as long as no major theme code rewrites are required Kriesi will update his themes for sure. Even eg the 3 years old Cubit theme receives updates from time to time.
