Need upgrade advice regarding possible move to PowerBlog

  1. My site is currently running an older version (0.6? 0.7?) of Thematic and I'm contemplating upgrading to the PowerBlog child theme. I can use a couple of the features in it. But I have a couple of questions:

    1. I like the color scheme of the original theme and don't really want to change it too much. How much work (for a non-programmer like me) would be to get that color scheme using PowerBlog?

    2. I wrote a very simple plugin (or, more accurately, copy/pasted the code for a very simple plugin based on your advice) that implements a home page menu item. I seem to recall you warning me at the time that something was going to change in the next version of Thematic that would break the plugin. How hard would it be (again, for a non-programmer) to add a home page to the menu?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. 1 & 2 I would download Thematic Classic

    and the latest version of Thematic and test them on a local server. You'd have to do some CSS work to make Power Blog look like Classic but this should give you an idea of what's involved.

  3. OK, I see that I'm already over my head. Suppose that I just want to use Classic and make sure that the home page item on the menu continues to work after the upgrade? Do you have an up-to-date post on the code for that somewhere?

  4. That's actually already implemented in the Thematic Classic Theme.
