    CP theme is nod for the ..

    I am endeavoring to be as objective as possible. I stongly feel That the founder should ome out in the open and declare that CP is only for customers who are familiar with CSS, php, HTML, understand what is httpaccess, FTP, ......whatever that are necessary skills, inclinations, knowledge to work a decent Wordpress site. CP runs on wp platform.

    With the skill n knowledge, they will not be at the mercy of the "dedicated support team" whenever they run into technical problems. Looking at the forum, it is not difficult to appreciate the whims and fancy support. Lest anyone disagree , please feel free to rubbish my feedback here. Big caveat - provided this thread here are not swept under the carpet. Did I mention north Korea?
    So, alas, I have site that has vanish and the "dedicated support folks" don't give a damm Look it is not about me because it is an issue for all users who can't self when problems surface.
    So, please make a statement so users can make an informed and transparent choice.

    Never had any big issues

    I never had any big problems, all the issues i had was solved. I had problems when i upgrade maybe but that was quickly solved. Now the only thing i do not like is that my changes go away every time i update. Most of the "issues" people have is that want MORE or they done SOMETHING to the theme. It is like modify a car the warranty do not cover. I personally think we should have a very WIDE gab with ISSUES people have with NORMAL sites and modified sites.


    I love to help out you out but please read this first Have you tried to install in a root domain? Have you tried to Resave permalinks? Have you tried to disable all plug in? Have you tried the default theme of Wordpress?

    ++ If the issue is fixed consider closing the thread and change to solved, thank you for helping us helping you. ++

    To solve that upgrading that delete all your modifications, you can use the concept of Child Theme for your site.

    It involves some learning though and the documentation in AppThemes are available for only Action Hooks. There isn't basic introduction on child theme for us to do that easily.

    I have started to add a child theme to my new site now and the basic work is working and I am still learning on how to add more features to the child theme.

    You can learn about Child Theme here:

    Child Theme WordPress Codex
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    A WordPress child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme, called the parent theme, and allows you to modify, or add to, the functionality of that parent theme. This article shows how to create a basic child theme and explains what you can do with it.

    Making a child theme is very simple. Create a directory, put a properly formatted style.css file in it, and you have a child theme! With a little understanding of HTML and CSS, you can make that very basic child theme modify the styling and layout of a parent theme to any extent without editing the files of the parent theme itself. That way, when the parent theme is updated, your modifications are preserved.

    For this reason, child themes are the recommended way of making modifications to a theme.
