Customized Studio theme a lot...

I have customized my studio theme extensively ( and with the new update I would like to know exactly which files were altered/changed so that I can download the latest version of the Studio theme and only upload those certain files. I have altered several of the files to customize them to fit my layout, and I cannot imagine having to go into each file one-by-one to figure out what was altered.

Thank you in advance.

    I'll let Tammie comment on this one as she knows exactly what's changed from version to version.

    Definitely best practice here is to keep changes in a child theme for this exact reason - so that updates aren't an issue. Of course, that depends on the level of customization and yours looks quite extensive so child themes may not help.

    Other idea is to keep your own list of changes (like a personal changelog). This may sound tedious, but ultimately can be a huge help if you have to go back and figure out where a problem showed up.

    Just my 2 cents! Thanks!

    @both: To be fair as you don't say which version of Studio I can't say a lot has changed and I'd never say use parent themes for this reason. We can't provide a full list each time hence why we provide a parent and child theme. To provide a list with the current way we do things would not work but in later updates we may change this.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
