Support » Theme: ColorWay » 3.4.4 Broke Home Page

    I just updated to Colorway 3.4.4 and it broke the front page completely. I had to roll back to 3.4.2 to get it back.

    Since 3.4.2 misbehaves when customizing the theme to display a static front page, and the latest version eliminated the home.php file for template-home.php, I’m guessing this has something to do with my difficulties. I wasn’t able to customize the home page to display anything but the latest posts, regardless of settings.

  • I experienced the same problem – homepage broken, only showing blogs listing. Unfortunately I did not back up and only have a hard copy (yup) of my home page. How does this get resolved? I’m not a programmer…

    First I visited the Wayback Machine (https://archive.org/web/) so I could see a snapshot of my site from a month ago. Then I temporarily switched my site theme to one of the stock WordPress themes like Twenty Fifteen.

    Luckily I had a copy of Colorway 3.4.2 that I had saved offline. I uploaded that zipped theme file to my site and activated it. It actually had most of the homepage customizations saved, so there wasn’t too much to do to fix things.

    I think you can download 3.4.2 via Trac (https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/34946)

    Thank you. I’ll give that a go.

    Found your info on restoring home page and now it is working again. Is this something that has to be done each time you update this theme? Seems like a real pain if that is the case.

    See corrected site now.

    I ended up contacting InkThemes about the problem. They walked me through fixing the issue. It was a checkbox in one of the dashboard panels… No programming or reverting back to a previous version needed. That was a month ago and I don’t recall where I fixed it. 🙁

    Now I’m asking them about fixing the blockquotes that disappeared after one of their previous updates.. about a year ago.

    Greetings from InkThemes,

    For your information, the updated version of ColorWay Lite comes with Home Page template that you need to apply on your WordPress page.

    Just create a Page called Home and apply the Home Page template from Page Attribute section then, visit Dashboard->Settings->Reading and set Home as your static page for the Front Page display settings rather using the latest posts option.

    Then, you need to configure your Home page Menus from Dashboard->Appearance->Menus just replace the custom link Home tab with your Home page tab and save your Main Menu.

    Also, turn off your WordPress debugging mode from wp-config.php file via FTP.

    I hope this will resolve your issue.
