New WordPress 2.8 Update for Chiropractor2Web Theme

June 12, 2009 · Print This Article

WordPress 2.8 was just released, and it is definitely worth upgrading to. Some of the new features include:

  • The ability to browse and install Themes from the Admin UI (instead of using FTP)
  • Faster loading of admin pages
  • Improved Widget management user interface

Some WordPress Theme Problems

The 2.8 release of WordPress also caused me some problems with the Chiropractor2Web theme. They changed the database format – specifically in the WP_POSTS table – and removed the post_category field.

This caused a problem with new installations of Chiropractor2Web theme – when you “activate” the theme it is supposed to automatically create the Contact, Find Us and Blog pages for you, but this was not happening due to the change.

Missing pages!

Missing pages!

And Some Fixes

I’ve updated the theme and everything is working fine now – so be sure to grab the latest version if you are installing it on WordPress 2.8! To get the updated theme, just go back to the link in the email you received from me, and re-download it.

This is what it should look like!

Let me know in the comments or in the forums if you have any questions!

Note: You will not have any problems upgrading to WordPress 2.8 with the Chiropractor2Web theme. You only need this update if you are doing a new install on top of WordPress 2.8.

    Hi Don,

    I am trying to install the theme on the latest version of WP. 2.8.4 and it says the theme is broken. Any thoughts?

    Hi Craig,
    I’m not aware of any problems on 2.8.4 – I will re-test tonight and post a fix if there are any issues.

    Craig – we re-tested this last night and everything is working fine on WordPress 2.8.4.

    Can you give me some more details on what you are running into so I can help?

    Just did a fresh wordpress install. Those 3 menu links aren’t working.

    Guess I have to add the pages manually correct.

    Actually, if you just go to the Chiropractor2Web Options panel that’s when the links get set up. You have to visit it one time for it to trigger the pages to be created. I have that in the readme but it’s easy to miss :)
