Tagged: Genesis upgrade problem
My security plugin showed there was a newer version of Genesis. For some reason, under themes it was showing Genesis was not Active. When I activated it and the child theme (again), it totally messed up my site at cathymiller.biz
It says Genesis 3.3.0. If you haven't guess, I am no techie. 😉https://cathymiller.biz
Oops. I’m sure most of us will Have activated the wrong theme at some point.
Reactivate your child theme and it should (mostly) return to normal. Widgets might need to be placed Back into their widget area again. Check ‘inactive widgets’ to see if they are still in Dashboard>Widgets.
The theme named Genesis is your sites basic framework that, although inactive, works in conjunction with the child theme (the active theme). Genesis should not be activated, but it should be updated to the latest version.
@camscorner Genesis is never active. Enterprise Pro which is your child theme is what would have needed to be active.
The image of the Pencils looks like it was moved up to Header Right. Move it down to the Home Top widget area to activate the home page. The remaining widgets should still be there. But drag that down and lets see what happens.
This is what the site looked like on February 26 - Google Cached Page.
Love coffee, chocolate and my Bella!
Thank you both for the education. My ignorance is showing. 😉 I didn't know Genesis showed as inactive. I will review the plugins. I wanted to change the design so I guess this is kicking me into that action. 🙂 Thanks again!
