I just picked up the 2012 13” air and love it. I upgraded from a 2009 pro and while the display quality isn’t as good, the higher resolution is like working on a 15” screen.

I was going back and forth between air and pro with retina and decided I didn’t need retina yet and wanted something super portable.

Hey Derek!

I see you updated OptionTree to 2.0.8. My in-theme functions are working again!

However, the auto load of version 1.x files don’t seem to be working. I activate a theme and the theme options for that theme don’t load (i.e. fields and data).

EDIT : more info… I just have an “option-tree” folder with the theme-options.xml, theme-options.txt and layouts.txt files.

Thanks!

Chris

Hi Chris,

from v2.0 you can’t use anymore the option-tree folder for the xml and txt data of your options, that way to import the options is deprecated. That folder is now dedicated for the plugin.

To import the options with v2 you need a php file with the array of your settings.

From 2.0.8 you can export this php file from the OT settings page.

Hmm, the changelog says 2.0.8 “Adds auto import for backwards compatibility of old 1.x files.” Does that not mean the old files I’m referring to?

Does using “theme mode” require the author to manually update the theme for each new version of OptionTree?

Is there not an option like before where we can include some basic files to have all the options “built in”, but still allow the user to update the plugin on their own?

I’m not seeing anything like that in the documentation.

For the record, I want to say that I’ve got no anger or frustration for Derek on this one.

That’s a good point, and I have similar feelings… BUT … Wouldn’t an easy way to test if there was a problem be updating the plugin from 1.X to 2.X and seeing that nothing works?

Maybe I’m speaking from plugin developer ignorance (haven’t touched plugins), but that would be the first thing I would do once I think I have a finished product.

...this is sorta a mess from a transition point of view.

I have to agree with Brandon on this one. I’m all for improving code and keeping things clean, new, better, etc. But the way this all went down has quite literally caused me quite a bit of stress.

As Brandon mentioned, my support requests have gone through the roof as a result of users updating to OptionTree 2. I’m a bit surprised that there is zero support for the previous method used.

I’m currently putting my entire [birthday] weekend on hold just to figure out how to update all my 20+ themes that are dependent on this plugin to work.

I know Derek is working hard, means well and has been very responsive to my communications, but this is quite a mess IMO .

For anyone trying to migrate their OT 1 .X themes to OT 2 .X, I just put together a writeup for the process that I’m using. It takes me about 10-15 minutes per theme… which is a fair bit better than the 2-3 hours per theme I was looking at if I had to manually create each theme-options.php array. I honestly don’t know if Derek or anyone else might have better ideas for this stuff, but I figure it doesn’t hurt to share: http://snippi.com/s/9pa94k0 Oh, and Derek, P&K, and anyone else who wants to chime in – feel free to yell at me and throw rocks if I’m doing it wrong. Ideally we’ll have a simple “theme-option.php” export method from the Theme Builder UI in the future… so this is just a workaround until that happens.

You rock.
