There’s a new update of the Porto Template – the version 1.1 – and if you have downloaded it before 19th March 2013 you might want to “merge” it with your own version.
First of all, there’s a good software to help you to compare 2 files, and it’s Kdiff3 – http://kdiff3.sourceforge.net/ – I recommend that you download it and use to compare your files with the new ones.
So let’s talk about what is changed in the version 1.1:
Social Media Icons
First thing you have to do is to change the HTML of the header and the footer, to be like this:
Get it from the new files and replace it in your html files.
If you have changed the theme-elements.css file you have to make some changes and add the css of the icons:
Go to the bottom of the theme-elements.css and copy this (all the social media icons definitions):
Again, please compare the new file and the old one with the Kdiff3 tool.
Finally, copy the file img/social-sprites.png to your folder.
The HTML is still the same, what is changed is the CSS and the JS.
Copy the whole new stickyMenu
And add the call in the build initializer:
Just replace the file vendor/modernizr.js to the new one.
Just replace the file vendor/bootstrap.js to the new one.
If you have an issue with special characters in the contact form submission, please replace the file php/contact-form.php to the new one.
I want to continue to use the old template and not change the social icons, I am only using Twitter anyway.
Will this be a problem or can I continue to use the older version?
Do I need to change the modernizer and bootstrap files still?
I’m not sure that I have de latest version. But when I purchase my template version I check the option in Themeforest to be notified if the template was update. But, I’m quite sure I purchase before march 2013 soo… I suppose I should update.
