Upgrade ruined my layout! can I rollback? (3 posts)

    I idiotically edited the default layout (Kubrick) to make my client's website look the way it does. Then, when he upgraded to 2.8.5 without telling me, or making a backup, it overwrote my layout edits and uploaded the default Kubrick layout files! It completely removed all the little tweaks and edits I made - hours of work. Is there any way to rollback, or restore those old files from before the upgrade, or are they gone forever? Any help is greatly greatly appreciated!

    Sorry - unless you have a backup copy somewhere, they're gone forever. Next time, make a copy of the default theme and customise the copy - never the original.

    Contact the web host about restoring a backup of the site.
