    Hi,

    recently, I’ve installed Thematic 2.0 from GitHub but it uses “legacy.css”. How can I actually use the new styles (especially the responsive features)? I’ve found no options in “Theme options”, beside “Index Insert Position”, “Info on Author Page” and “Text in Footer” – but nothing about CSS or styles.
    My site is: http://reality-and-a-half.multiversum.com/

    Thanks for your support.

    You will need to add the call

    add_theme_support( 'thematic_html5' );

    to your child theme’s functions.php. This will both change the markup and use the new stylesheet.

    By default, an upgraded theme is in legacy mode in order not to break sites.

    Thanks for your reply. I’m using no child theme. Do I have to modify the Thematic source?

    I would strongly recommend you to use a child theme.

    There is already a sample child theme included in Thematic. You can just copy or move the folder “thematicsamplechildtheme” to the wp-content/themes directory. Change the name and info in style.css to what you want and then add the theme support call into functions.php.

    Tecnichally, there is a theme option for html5 but the UI is hidden. If you know how to access the database, like with phpMyadmin, you could set it manually. But I really think a child theme is the best way to go.
