What do you do when your WordPress theme isn’t supported anymore? As WordPress heads for version 2.7 and an overhaul of the comments loop, the theme I use doesn’t look like it will be updated in anticipation of the new version changes. I hope I’m wrong.
Anyway, I had a feeling this day would come so I have to be prepared to roll up my sleeves and work on comments.php to be able to leverage the new functions. Thanks to Otto’s tutorial, I don’t think the task will be too daunting.
I’ve already done a ton of tweaks and modifications to the theme so it works and presents the way I want it to. I don’t want to lose the ‘look and feel’ as well as the time I’ve invested in making the modifications so changing themes isn’t something I’m looking at right now.
