Unable to modify themes (5 posts)

    Since upgrading to 3.8 I have lost the editor (not visual), and ability to change my background picture/colour. Customize doesn't have any option to change this. I have no ability now to access the footer.php or other .php files through the dashboard. HElp!

  2. What happens when you disable all your plugins and activate the default Twenty Fourteen theme? If that fixes the issue re-activate your plugins one by one to see what is causing the problem.

    Hi Patrick,

    You were very close...

    The issue is with the Pixel Happy Theme that I am using.

    I deactivated the plugins and switched themes as you suggested. The issue was resolved still when I reactivated all the plugins. Switching back to Pixel Happy Theme resulted in the same issue appearing again, and deactivating plugins had no effect on this.

    So, I assume this is an issue where Pixel Happy has not been updated to support the new WordPress 3.8?

  4. Pixel Happy -- that's a Genesis Child Theme, right? It's no longer being sold on their site but you may want to contact them. I also asked in a Genesis FB group here.

    I have tested Pixel Happy on one of my own sites. So far as I can tell, it is working just fine.

    Has your version been customised? There is no footer.php included in the theme. There is a file footer-widgeted.php howver, I found I could access and edit it without any problems.

    If someone customised the theme for you, then I would suggest you contact them for help. Otherwise, I would suggest you open a support ticket at Studiopress.
