I just finished a fairly extensive website and maintenance project for one of my neighbors. Her website hadn’t been touched by a developer in over 4 years, and hadn’t even received WordPress core updates. The first thing I did was update the WordPress core, which of course then broke half the functionality of the original site. I migrated to an updated version of WooThemes Canvas, but WooThemes no longer supports the portfolio functionality and prefers to use a new function called projects instead. Unfortunately the portfolio to projects migration tool destroyed all the data custom attached to the projects! After a day of wrestling with code and plugins and no way to get the layout of the projects back to the way it was before, it became clear what I had to do.
