I just updated the theme from 8.4 to 8.7 and unfortunately when I did it changed the layout of the home page. How can I either go back to the prior design of the home page or if all else fails go back to version 8.4?
I’ve attached two screen shots, before and after.
Christoper, easiest way is to restore your files and database from a backup then you get your system back to exactly how it was before.
If you didn’t take a backup before doing the update then you’ve learned a lesson the hard way – always backup before major changes/updates and do on a test system first. If you failed to take a backup and you have hosting with good support they may be able to restore for you.
@Christopher Contact your host and request for a backup copy.Most host do offer auto backups
So is there not a way to get the same layout that I had before the update? I hate to go back to an older version. Again, my main goal it to retain the design I had on the home page, prior to the update. See attached pictures from original post.
and thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback I have received so far… on all my posts.
@Chris Version 8.4 had some bugs which where fixed in V8.7 so reverting is not the best option.You can enable Home Page Editor under Theme Options >Page Setup then set up your homepage how you want
yeah, I tried that, but the options are not the same, they look different… such as the default header block.
