WordPress 4.3 made Swatcher start acting a bit weird so it was time to get some fixes and upgrades in place.
ALWAYS MAKE A BACK UP BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING!
Re-Download your purchased Swatcher child theme from DevDm
… and copy the files over your current version. Be careful if you have made any changes. I worry particularly about people forgetting to back up their style.css file. So please be careful.
You can re-download Swatcher if you made an account on DevDm.com. If you didn’t make an account just shoot me an email with enough details that I can match you to a purchase and I will send you the new package. firstname.lastname@example.org
Manual Upgrade with Kirki files and changing the file /customizer/customizer.php
If you want to manually fix your Swatcher theme as you have made too many customizations or don’t want to take any risk you can follow the steps below.
3. Update the file devdmbootstrap3-swatcher/customizer/customizer.php
You are going to remove 1 line from the top.
$wp_customize->get_section( ‘title_tagline’)->priority = ’10’;
$wp_customize->get_section( ‘nav’)->priority = ‘2’; <- delete this line
$wp_customize->get_section( ‘colors’)->priority = ‘4.1’;
$wp_customize->get_section( ‘header_image’)->priority = ‘4’;
$wp_customize->get_section( ‘background_image’)->priority = ‘4’;
4. Upload your new customizer.php file and you are Done.

Like my other child theme ‘clean-blog‘, Swatcher will have the same price tag of $4.99.
With “Swatcher” I’ve incorporated all 16 Bootswatch themes. You can easily switch between them with the WordPress theme customizer. This gives you the ability to rapidly transform any DevDmBootstrap3 project into something fresh and new within minutes. This site here is full of documentation about all of the NEW tools available to you. We are really pushing the limits of the Theme Customizer here and I am excited for it!
Swatcher is an elaborate example of what can be accomplished with WordPress child themes and a little elbow grease.
Visit dannymachal.com for a working example of what you can do. I was able to change my blog that hadn’t been updated in 5 years into a modern responsive design in minutes.
