We have over 2400 members and over 800 posts. Before I UPDATE wpforo... what will be lost as far as styles, settings, etc? Will all that stay the same, or will I have to go back and re-work everything?
Sure, wpForo is designed to update once a new version is released. This is normal and already tested by thousands of users. But in any case I'd recommend backup the database before updating.
I meant the design aspect. Colors, layout, settings, etc.
I figured all the other stuff was good.
What is your current wpForo version? Is it too old?
Have you created custom template files in WordPress theme folder?
You just need to do Ctrl+F5 twice on front-end to load colors. Settings and layouts will stay the same.
No custom template.
Guess I'm talking about the STYLES tab. All the colors.
Also, the FEATURES settings.
Explain the Ctrl + f5 on front end thing a bit more please.
Like.... after I install that will restore colors?
Or can you post a link to something I'm missing on the info pages.
