    With what version of WordPress is this release compliant? It says WP 3.6.x. Is that a typo, or should I switch to an older version of WordPress (we have 3.7.1)?

    Our admin panel runs very slowly with our Cherry framework (both version 2.3.1 and 2.4 are very slow) and child theme 2106 active so I’m trying to do anything I can to sort that out for my client.

    • Ariadna

      You can use the last version of WordPress – 3.7.1.
      We optimized the framework in version 2.4, it has to work faster.

      Hi Isaac,

      Are you using Safari 6.1 on MacOS 10.7.5? I’m having similar problems with the Cherry Framework,. It works fine in Chrome, so I’m guessing it’s a Safari issue.

        Hi Tito.

        I’m using Chrome. Updating to version 2.4 did speed it up to an acceptable rate, thankfully.

        I wonder what version 3 would do? I think I’ll wait for 3.1 to find out.

        • Alexey Svistunov

          Update from 2.4 to version 3.0 was a technical one. Since 3.0 Cherry Plugin and Cherry Framework are separate applications. At the moment Cherry Framework consists of three parts: framework, child theme and plugin. This allows to switch themes without any issues and if needed update separate parts of Cherry Framework. Plugin now contains shortcodes and widgets, and will contain more features in future.

    I am rather confused the Github has version 3.0 while the one with theme show framework version 2.3 and a notification for 2.4 release to update the same.

    So which version is actually the latest and stable version?

    • Alexey Svistunov

      Latest stable version is 3.0.1 at the moment

    The first time I did your upgrade all of the custom CSS was wiped out. Fortunately there was a back-up, but for this reason I have not done the latest upgrade. Now I am being told to download all of the css files and back up my site just to do your upgrade. There has got to be an easier way to get this upgrade done with out hours of backing up every css file and then re-installing them. Please help

    • Alexey Svistunov

      You need to edit child theme files. Theme that use CherryFramework to get settings but that can be modified without losing modifications in CherryFramework updates.

    I’m trying to create a gallery format portfolio like the one it presents in the demo, When i create a portfolio with a gallery style on it, instructions say use upload images button but there is nothing there. I’m very confused, I using cherry framework 2.3 with the Limousine Services Responsive WordPress Theme. It’s saying to upgrade to version 2.4 but I read on the comments above the newest version is already 3.1, so I’m confused if I’m missing something because I’m in a old version or how do I exactly create these portfolio gallery posts.

    Hi, I’ve inherited a very slow wordpress website which is currently running 1.2 and wondering if this is one of the root causes of website connection & load speed (if not it still likely needs updating). However i can’t do this via WP dashboard as it crashes the entire site. What’s the best method for updating manually via FTP?

    • Alexey Svistunov

      Well, I’m not sure it is possible to successfully update WordPress 1.2 to WordPress 3.9. However you can try to do it manually, just try to do this on test copy of your website. Also you may need to perform some manual code updates.

    I’ have CherryFramework 1.0. In the dashboard, the upgrade is to v2.4. I’d like to know your opinion if the upgrading is worth it. I’m fearing the upgrade mess up the website.
    I checked
    If after the upgrade you find problems, did you waist lot of time restoring the backups?
    Thanks for your comments,

    • Alexey Svistunov

      There were some issues updating from 1.0 to 1.1, however in case of any troubles you can contact our support team at [email protected] for assistance. I also recommend you to create a backup of you–ļ website before update.
