katie,

The v2.3.1 download contains and upgrade document. However, if your RC2a site is working for you, is secure and functional, then there is really no reason to upgrade it.

Hello Chris
Okay well I'm looking for more functionality? I thought with upgrading that would be possible... but maybe what Im really looking for is a different template?

Upgrading won't give you a different template. With RC2a, you can make changes to the layout from the stylesheet.css but a true template would have to be created for you or you can purchase a commercial template and then just import your database.

Functionality is a whole other story. Some contributions are easy to install, others require a little skill.

@DunWeb

Okay so I think I get it! I could get someone to help me with the .CSS to change the front end of things or purchase a template to do this for me? Because Im using an older version am I going to have trouble finding an template that will work?

Thanks
KT
