Genesis usually does do auto-updates. (I auto-updated mine less than a month ago.) I'm not sure what the issue is that the most recent update or two did not happen automatically.
If you follow my steps you will easily be able to delete the out of date Genesis Framework, the reason the DELETE button is missing is because the Child version needs the framework to work so even tho the Genesis isn't 'active' if the Child version is the active one then the Delete button won't appear.
When you activate the non-genesis theme then the delete button on the genesis will be there as normal and easily able to be deleted. Just thought I would further explain that 😉
Hi! Total newbie here. How do I uninstall the current Genesis version in order to upgrade? Thank you!
niki16...... if you follow the steps above in post #197268 it tells you ; -)
Especially steps 3 and 4....
I had the same problem (extra sidebars on my front page). Went to Genesis > Theme settings > Information section. Checked the "Check for Updates" box, then "Save changes" at the bottom of the page.
Then went to the main dashboard and was alerted that Genesis had an update. Chose "update now" and all was fixed.
(This method avoids having to delete Genesis and reinstall, forcing a production site template change)
mlbdenver, yes your process works perfect but IF their version of Geneses is significantly out of date for what-ever reason that 'check for updates' box won't even be there .... so they might still have to do it manually, just FYI 😉
