    I recently took over a "Live" site that was "in development" and using the Customizr theme without a child theme. So I created the child theme and made only a couple of changes to the style.css file of the child theme to accommodate 9 main menu items (reduced padding and font size.)

    Then when I tried to update from 2.1.8 to 3.1.20 there were a bunch of widgets displayed in footer area and all the footer content, copyright, back to top, ... were no longer visible.

    I currently have reverted back to my backup of ver.2.1.8 however I make a capture of the update before downgrading you can see the capture here:

    Hi @gecko1952, there have been many important changes since 2.1.8. I would recommend to adapt your child theme's customization to the latest version.
    You can find all changes in the development log, located in the readme.txt.

    Thank you for the reply nikeo.
    I tried as you suggested by commenting out my footer functions in the child's functions.php file. This did correct the widgets issue and now the footer displays everything that was missing except of course my custom footer function.

    I now see that some of the footer content is pulled form a different file in this version, the /inc/parts/class-footer-footer_main.php. I'll make the appropriate changes to my child's functions.php file.

    Thanks for the suggestion and the nice theme.

    Try also to use Customizr's action/filter hooks, rather than copying chunks of code. It's more future-proof.

    Thanks for the advice ElectricFeet, I'll look into the action/filter hooks after I get this site finished. This project had a short deadline to start with, I'll just go with what I know will work for now.

    This client also has another site using the Customizr theme as well, also "Live and in development." but that project has a later deadline. I'll have the time to read up on the action/filter hooks and apply them to that site first then work on the first site.
