  • You would need to update WordPress core itself, that function was introduced in WordPress 4.7.0

    Boy what a mess…

    1. We had a slider at the top in our home page (It’s been 4 years since I built the site, so I don’t remember if it was in the header or just below it. I think it was in the header so we must of had the pro version???

    2. The font has reduced in size to where it is barely readable.

    3. the logo will not align to left even tho that option is selected.

    Hi @ohorses, using a child theme? update its code. Using a cache plugin? Clear its cache.

    No child theme, I flushed cache, – no help.
    NOW, today I had web-host restore website to 3/13/19 and none of the page content is showing.
    they checked and responded – Furthermore I have checked the error logs of your website and found below logs:

    [Fri Mar 15 18:36:37 2019] [error] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function evolve_get_post_id() in /var/www/vhosts/47/233669/webspace/siteapps/WordPress-36549/htdocs/wp-content/themes/evolve/template-parts/page/content-page.php on line 14

    The above logs is generating everytime, whenever your website is calling any page.

    So since today’s restore, many plugins and the theme are out of date, (WP is current) – I am afraid to update anything because of the troubles i had yesterday after I updated all.

    It sounds like incomplete theme. How did you install it? WP admin or FTP?

    When I updated yesterday – it was done from wp admin…
    As I said, I have the current WP core updated, but as of yet have not updated the theme because I am afraid it will create same problems as yesterday.

    But, I am about ready to try updating from WP admin – should I go ahead and try it?
    I exported everything for backup and I have notes about all custom settings.

    if you have a back up, there is no problem to revert anytime.

    Will you be around all day if I need you?

    I just updated the theme and many things are srewed up…

    1. Logo does not positiom left
    2. All slider content is missing
    3. text font is too small
    etc. etc. etc

    Should I “Import” the file I exported before updating , will that fill in the customizer settings?
    Will that duplicate anything? (Don’t want that either!!)

    you are using bootstrap based plugins, they break the theme code

    Well fuck! everything was working before the updates!!!!

    tried to disable them one by one? they use older bootstrap frameworks, that’s why it breaks the code

    OH.. well they all need updating, I will try that next, although it did not help yesterday, when this all started…

    Updating the bootstrap plugins did not help – So, if I disable it, I get – [notification type=”alert-info” close=”false” ] –

    Again – this was working before with this theme

    in this thread https://wordpress.org/support/topic/menu-slider-issues-with-v-3-9-3-3-9-4/ I described how could dequeue those plugins bootstrap frameworks which are not updated
