Ballard Updates

Unless you have customized the Ballard theme by adjusting the HTML or CSS, your theme will update automatically. If you are using a customized version of Ballard, you will need to manually update the theme to use our new features. To do this you will first need to disable Custom HTML in the Theme tab, then reinstall the Ballard theme from the theme garden. Once you have the new version, you will need to go back into the code to add your custom HTML changes.
