Note: Since version 2.0 and above, there is barely any need to worry about upgrading your skins any more from one version of b2evo to the next. This page is mostly for users who have a legacy skin to upgrade.
You put a lot of time and effort into making your skin be exactly what you want, and now you see your blog engine has been upgraded. Should you upgrade and lose your skin? Should you upgrade and try to recreate your skin? Should you upgrade and follow an online guide to upgrading your skin? I’d pick option 3, but that’s just me ;)
When you upgrade your version of b2evolution be prepared to use the ‘custom’ skin while you work on your own skin again. These guides are written to help you, but - of course - no one can promise that you’ll have it all down instantly. Your skin is, after all, unique to your blog. No one writing an upgrade procedure can guess at all the custom tricks you’ve done with either PHP or CSS or both.
Thanks for understanding! Now let’s get your skin looking cool in the latest release!
