    I know they might be changes but I just want to make sure it will be ok before updating… I’m using Directory Theme and using Business Directory as my child Theme.

    Miguel, if you are currently using version 8.3 or earlier you cannot update to 8.6 without a lot of work, although at some point in the future there is supposed to be an auto updater which will allow it. As so much as changed I’d be surprised if old child themes would work with the new version.

    What version are you currently on?

    You’ll have to wait until the auto-update comes out unless you want to spend a lot of time re-developing. Search and read the forums regarding 8.4, 8.5 and 8.6 and you will get an idea about things.
