If you are still using Tendenci 5 then it is time to upgrade to Tendenci 7. The biggest single change is the switch to using bootstrap 3 for all themes so be sure to backup and test your themes, or get a new one, before doing the upgrade.

Instructions to upgrade from Tendenci 5 to Tendenci 6 are here: https://tendenci.readthedocs.org/en/latest/upgrade/upgrade-to-tendenci6.html

After which you should immediately upgrade to Tendenci 7 to bump the core django app to 1.8+ https://tendenci.readthedocs.org/en/latest/upgrade/upgrade-to-tendenci7.html

Note that the Tendenci lifecycle is posted here but it WILL CHANGE IF DJANGO CHANGES THEIRS. Expect it. https://www.tendenci.com/tendenci-life-cycle/

Yes we are working to make upgrading smoother and less manual in the future which is what the 7.1 branch of Tendenci is all about. Simplify!
