2.4 has blown up my multisite main and sub-blogs home pages (videos and mappress maps have magically appeared!) and I need to revert to an older version. Is there a safe resource where previous versions are available?http://www.travelsignposts.com/September 29, 2016 at 1:34 am #193864
Update: This problem does not occur when "excerpt" is chosen in the Featured Post widget (I am using Lifestyle Pro). Previously I configured the widget using "Content Limit". However, although the videos are at the top of their posts, the google maps are at the bottom of their respective posts. It would appear there is a coding problem here that pulls embedded content into the widget. Quite surprising this was not picked up earlier, especially with regard to the video element.
Anybody have any ideas about this? I'll put in another support ticket meanwhile.September 29, 2016 at 8:02 am #193886mrpointyMember
2.4 has also wrecked MY homepage Tony - you are not alone!
I originally though it was a conflict with Page Builder by Site Origin, but it's definitely the Genesis 2.4 update!
I've had to restore a backup of my site and now the Genesis Responsive Slider is not displaying - this update doesn't seem to have been tested particularly thoroughly!September 29, 2016 at 10:19 am #193891Victor FontModerator
Updated over a dozen sites. No problem on any of them.

Have you requested your free website audit yet?September 29, 2016 at 1:34 pm #193910
Yeah, the update has killed mobile responsiveness for me across sites and thrs.
It is like we have gone back five years in one small step.September 29, 2016 at 1:52 pm #193911
You can revert to previous version by going to downloads and follow ing the link to at the bottom of the page.
Installing the previous version gives an error message but refeshing the page a few times seems to work ok.September 29, 2016 at 1:55 pm #193912
By the way, fixing stuff over mobile isn't much fun, especially when an ill prepated update breaks the site you nred to fix.
Less self congratulation and a bit more testing next time please?September 29, 2016 at 3:13 pm #193917lsilverMember
Genesis 2.4 hosed the first site I upgraded on as well. Couldn't complete the upgrade process and got infinite redirects. Reverting to 2.3.1 seems to fix it.September 29, 2016 at 6:25 pm #193921ChristophMember
please rememeber to open tickets with the official Studiopress support at my.studiopress.com/help.
If they don't know about the issues, they cannot fix them.
That being said, Genesis 2.4 was in public beta for three weeks.

I have the same problem after updating to 2.4 with content limit on all my sites and I think support has identified the issue.September 30, 2016 at 3:23 pm #194055NickParticipant
Version 2.4.1 is now out, which solves the content limit issue with the Featured Post and Page widget.
If you don't see it at Dashboard -> Updates already, check back soon.
If you continue to see issues or need further help, please do open a support ticket: https://my.studiopress.com/help/September 30, 2016 at 7:17 pm #194063
It would have been good to get some response to my 2 support tickets...
But in any event, at least we've seen a rapid response (that hopefully will work) to a problem that should have been spotted earlier. Unfortunately, not before I have spent a day switching sites over to using 'excerpt' as a stop-gap (which now will all have to be switched back).
Of course, my mistake was to have upgraded immediately, what was I thinking - I should have known better!
