Important update. Tiny Forge theme is in "maintenance mode", that means it is being replaced by new theme iteration - Tiny Framework. Tiny Forge will continue to receive updates to fix bugs and important compatibility issues, so don't worry, you're not left alone 😉
Please use Tiny Framework theme for all new projects. Tiny Framework is available to download @WordPress.org. Latest development version can be downloaded here.
This is a short guide for Tiny Forge users who want to upgrade their websites to Tiny Framework WordPress theme.
First I would just try to activate Tiny Framework on your site and see how it looks, perhaps everything will be in a good shape 🙂 It is pretty safe, because you can always go back to Tiny Forge theme. Please note that Tiny Framework requires at least WordPress 4.1.
The more custom CSS and other custom code you have, the more things you might have to adjust, but in general themes are very similar, so it should not be something too difficult.
Showcase your website or child theme based on Tiny Framework WordPress theme! Please share your website in the comments, also you could briefly describe what changes you made, specific techniques or plugins used 😉
There are several areas/industries that find a great use of Tiny Framework WordPress theme. It's hard to believe that all those sites are built on Tiny Framework (Forge), but it is true!
The best way to modify a WordPress theme is to not modify it at all 😀 Instead you would modify a child theme that is based on the parent theme of your choice. This will let you receive all future updates and not to lose your changes when updating (WordPress overwrites theme files with every new theme version). The good news - an example of starter child theme is included with my themes!
