I thought I could get away with staying with Alyeska v1, which was used by the customer’s original site builder (in July 2011). I took over the site in the Spring of 2012. [NOTE: I have minimal WP experience, but can troubleshoot (reverse-engineer?) and code in HTML, CSS, PHP and love to code/learn new stuff.] … Changes that the customer has requested (add new pages, for the most part) I’ve been able to slog my way through. But, now he’s asking for more than adding a page or changing content on pages.
Problem now encountered by me: figuring out how to use Alyeska v1 but only having v2 tutorials posted on ThemeBlvd. (The tutorials are nice! But, for instance, the Layout Builder does not exist in v1 – that I can detect.) …
Question 1: Would it be best to upgrade to v2? Porting the old website into it? (I think you’ve addressed this with me before, saying it would not be a perfect integration of code/content from v1 into v2.)
Question 2: Wouldn’t an upgrade provide me the best scenario to help me learn from the tutorial videos?
Question 3: Although I’m willing to dive right into the code of your theme (Alyeska), is it almost imperative that I get a good base understanding of WP to facilitate working within Alyeska v2? (or can one delve into Alyeska v2 and video tutorials to understand both: WP and Alyeska?)
Basically, I’m frustrated about not having the latest version of Alyeska and believe that not having v2 is a big disadvantage to my learning about using/modifying Alyeska – that it’s not about my not knowing WP very well.
Here’s that website I’m working with: http://www.ocsportsandwellness.com
Thank you for your candid input. (you may send me private email if you think it would best suit your answer) 🙂
