Wordpress ran an update yesterday and it moved my sidebar from the right to the left. I have the lifestyle child theme and cannot figure out how to move it back. Does anyone know?http://mybusymomlife.com/December 7, 2016 at 1:43 pm #197202December 7, 2016 at 1:47 pm #197203carson0927Member
Victor, I paid someone to build mine. If I update is it going to wipe out everything and then I have to start over? I am not tech savvy at all.December 7, 2016 at 5:03 pm #197213
Cathy, if your developer did the job properly, the child theme has all of the customizations. So updating the framework won't impact the child theme. But, there's no way I can determine if the developer did a proper job or not. At least your site is using the LifeStyle Pro child theme.

For years using News Child Theme all updated, etc., not hacked. Immediately after update to WP 4.7 completed - we have a new shiny right secondary sidebar showing, with identification stuff in it, but no widgets, of course. It just appeared and now there is nothing in Customization or Genesis settings for sidebars/column number at all anymore. Nothing to "turn off" . It is forcing the two left columns over and much of center content column not showing. There is nothing in the "Site Layout" cutomization area at all.
What can we do?December 7, 2016 at 6:58 pm #197228
I just manually reinstalled WP 4.6.1 and all is well again, so it IS the update - of course. I'm seeing others having it too - must be big theme hook changes.
I'll wait to see if Genesis Framework needs to update before I update WP again.
(Also, it needed an sql database update this time when I refreshed the wp-admin area--didn't need that before, or it was automatic.)December 8, 2016 at 2:03 am #197237peri.mariannaMember
The same happened in my sites as well...
The Default layout option in genesis-> Theme settings has nothing to select. Also inside post or pages, there is not such an option anymore... The primary and secondary bars moved to the left (previously on right) changing my sites' layouts....
I hope that there will be a genesis update soon, as I cannot roll back to wp4.6.x version easily...
It is a nerve-cracking situation.....December 8, 2016 at 4:50 am #197248
Studio Press released Genesis 2.4 in September to provide compatibility with WordPress 4.7. If you are using any version of Genesis prior to 2.4, you need to update it. The layout issue will be fixed if you update. Here are the Genesis release notes: http://www.studiopress.com/genesis-2-4/

I ran into the same issue with the right side-bar moving over to the left after updating WordPress to 4.7. as did carson0927.
The Corporate Theme is installed and in checking the Genesis version, I have 2.0.1 installed. However, there is no prompt displaying for me to update to 2.4 in Appearance | Themes or in Dashboard | Updates.
This has never occurred before, but do I need to manually install Framework 2.4?
If do need to do a manual install, do I FTP and write over the current version or is there another approach?
Thanks for anyone's help!!December 8, 2016 at 12:10 pm #197272
I'll update them manually now that I see there is an update. Usually they come in the auto-updates via the installation. What happened to that? Does Genesis no longer use auto-updates for us to know there is an update?
Thanks.December 8, 2016 at 1:58 pm #197297[email protected]Member
I figured out why the auto-update wasn't happening. When you're in the WordPress Dashboard, go to Genesis Theme Settings and in the first section at the top, CLICK Check for Updates. For some reason this had not been checked. As soon as I checked the box I could then update the Genesis Framework.
Check the setting Elanor, that may the issue for you like my self-inflicted problem.December 8, 2016 at 4:21 pm #197315
I have that checked, no updates.
Manually updated Genesis to 2.4.2 then re-updated WP 4.7 and all is well.
Manually updated News Pro to 3.0.2 and all went wild--so back to dev on the theme. Reinstalled 2.0.1 .
