I like a lot of what I see in Pulse 5 and the manual is definitely a huge improvement over the Pulse 4 one however I'd like to see some more attention paid to upgrades. Yes, it's insanely easy to install for a new site, but I want to upgrade my old sites.
The first thing would be an upgrade package that doesn't include all the sample content so my stuff doesn't get overwritten when I do step 2 of the upgrade process. Ideally, part of that would be a local version of /inc/plugins and /inc/tags. I modified some of the included 4.7 tags and now I have to go through the process of making sure my modifications remain. A local version of the template directory would also be useful.
I would like to see documentation on themes. I have a highly customized template/layout.php which seems to work but it doesn't have any of the new theme tags like:
<?php echo \pulsecore\get_context()->theme->body_tag->render(array('')); ?>
I don't really know what I'm missing or if there's even subtle problems with my pages waiting to bite me in the future.
Thanks to you and the team that are working on this. I'm definitely a fan.
