Hi -I'm having an odd problem I've never had before. The WP dashboard won't allow me to update Genesis the normal way. I tried uploading the .zip for the latest version, and it also failed.
What do I do? Some of the plugins won't update because Genesis needs to be updated.
1. Backup your site.
2. Deactivate Genesis plugin.
3. Delete Genesis plugin using wp dashboard.
4. Upload latest version of Genesis.
5. Install latest version of Genesis.
6. Activate latest version of Genesis.
Thanks. But you mean the Genesis theme, not "plugin" -- correct? Everything else in your instructions stays the same except for that, yes? Just want to make sure!
He meant theme...
I'm having the same problem. Did this work? AND KEEP all the settings?
Your theme is an old XHTML theme. XHTML themes are no longer supported in Genesis. That's why Genesis won''t update. Your theme is too old. If you update manually, you will break your site.
On the Genesis Changelog for 3.0 Release of June 19, 2019 under "Removed", you will see that they "Removed support for all non-html5 output". As such, if you are using an XHTML theme, you will no longer receive Genesis Framework updates. Your version will remain pre-3.0.
This was also noted in their blog of May 30, 2019 - https://studiopress.blog/genesis-3-0-beta/.
