I have never seen the Genesis theme update change the Child theme style.css, perhaps I am wrong.
This was the first time my "front page" images (ASPIRE theme) where you insert images (Front page 1, Front page 2, etc.) disappeared. The theme settings now no longer function for this feature. I had to edit the .CSS to add links to restore the images.

The same thing has happened to me on my clients' sites. Not happy! How can I rollback the framework? Is there an archive for older frameworks?June 19, 2019 at 3:28 pm #491715
As a matter of fact, it not only removed images but completely bricked some of my clients' sites which are now displaying "The site is experiencing technical difficulties."June 19, 2019 at 3:41 pm #491716
Fortunately, I found an older version on my desktop (version 2.8.1) and rollbacked to it via FTP. This has fixed the issue until they update 3.0.0.June 19, 2019 at 4:06 pm #491717[email protected]Member
Parallax Pro theme also not showing background images after the upgrade to Genesis 3, will have to roll-back the update and wait for a fixJune 20, 2019 at 5:50 am #491741AnitaKeymaster
StudioPress issued a blog early on announcing upcoming changes back on May 30 - https://studiopress.blog/genesis-3-0-beta/ which indicated that they would be:
Removing all the CSS in the style.css file. Genesis should never be active anyway.
You can see the final changes on the latest Changelog here - https://studiopress.github.io/genesis/changelog/.
Great that you were able to revert back to the previous version of Genesis. I'll watch for an update on this. @pm you may want to report your issue also to Appfinite themes - https://appfinite.com/forums/.

Thanks for sharing these reports. We’re looking at a potential fix for background images disappearing that would be part of a 3.0.1 update.
A temporary fix for now is to make sure the
CHILD_THEME_NAMEin functions.php matches your stylesheet Theme Name (in the style.css header info).
For example, if you have this in functions.php:
define( 'CHILD_THEME_NAME', 'Altitude Pro Theme' );
But your style.css file header says this:
Theme Name: Altitude Pro
You can fix the issue by updating your functions.php with this:
define( 'CHILD_THEME_NAME', 'Altitude Pro' );
As a matter of fact, it not only removed images but completely bricked some of my clients' sites which are now displaying "The site is experiencing technical difficulties."
This sounds like separate to the background removal issue. If you can gain access to PHP error logs, we'd love to learn more. You can share them here or at https://my.studiopress.com/help/.June 20, 2019 at 7:18 am #491746CindyLeighDesignParticipant
Yikes! I had big issues too when I just updated to Genesis 3.0 on my personal site. It completely broke my customized Genesis theme (based on Interior Pro theme). I had to delete Genesis and then upload and activate an older version I had on my hard-drive and then reactivate my custom child theme. I've got 20+ highly customized client websites. Can you point me to some documentation as to the best way to prep my sites before upgrading to 3.0? This is going to be a nightmare ugh!!June 20, 2019 at 7:35 am #491750DaSkyesMember
If the new framework upgrade is going to break my Focus Pro theme, I'm not going to upgrade unless it becomes mandatory. I'll keep following this and similar threads to see the problems and the solutions.June 20, 2019 at 7:36 am #491751And_orParticipantJune 20, 2019 at 10:16 am #491761diParticipant
Not working for Infinity Pro either. Very frustrating. How did this version get sent through?June 20, 2019 at 12:33 pm #491770AndykevParticipant
Anita is correct. I also reached out to the theme author, Wes Straham at Appfinite, who wrote the Aspire theme.
To fix this, make sure the Theme name in the functions.php is exactly the same as the theme name inside the style.css.
For example: in functions.php make sure the name in this section –
//* Child theme (do not remove)
define( 'CHILD_THEME_NAME', 'Aspire Pro' )
….matches the theme name in style.css –
Theme Name: Aspire Pro
Theme URI: http://appfinite.com/shop/aspire/
The theme name can be whatever you want, just make sure they match. I had Aspire in the functions file, and Aspire Theme in the style.css of a couple themes. They’re supposed to be the same.
I changed the "Aspire Theme" to "Aspire Pro" in my .css and the customizer works perfectly. Thank you!June 20, 2019 at 1:52 pm #491779NickParticipant
Genesis 3.0.1 is out now.
It prevents the need to make changes to the
CHILD_THEME_NAME, and solves some issues caused by missing page templates.June 20, 2019 at 3:58 pm #491786
Thank you @Nick for the speedy fix!
For those interested, the Home page images disappeared on client sites that were using the Local Business Pro theme.
Sites that displayed the White Screen of Death with only the message "The site is experiencing technical difficulties" displayed had Web Savvy child themes installed from 9seeds.com, formerly Web Savvy Marketing.
Rolling back to 2.10.1 via FTP fixed the issue.
Since then I've installed 3.0.1 without any issues.
So again, thank you @Nick and the StudioPress development team for fixing this as quickly as you did.
