Re: Using Old Templates On New Versions
I don't have an issue with this concept.. However if the DIY shopowner and their learning curve/ability to create good looking templates is the CHIEF reason to go with a packaged template, then the template should AT LEAST use proper methodologies to create the template. The template certainly should not employ slash and burn coding methods to force the look by modifying code and removing core functions. Layout settings that are normally controlled in the admin are routinely removed from Template Montrosity templates.

This isn't something the shopowner broke, it's something Template Montrosity broke because their templates use lazy coding practices so they can spin these templates up and out the door..
I don't answer support questions via PM. Post add-on support questions in the support thread. The question & the answer will benefit others with similar issues.
