ThriftZizel has switched to the Thesis 2 Classic Responsive Theme. I must admit, I was a bit intimidated by this change. Not because it is all that hard to do, but because of the way theme switching used to be done. Let me explain. In the past there were a couple popular ways to test out a new theme:
- Set up a test site at a new URL (domain) to test your changes. When you were done, you would have to make sure you copied all the relevant files over to your real site. It was easy to miss files and settings and end up making your site a mess.
- Set up a test site “localhost”. This means you would set up an environment locally, on your PC or Mac. This has all the same problems as listed above.
Enter Thesis 2 and we now have a brand new way to do this. Read on and I’ll show you how I switched ThriftyZizel from Thesis Classic to Thesis Classic Responsive.
