Support » Theme: Graphene » Graphene 2.0 messed up all!

  • Resolved ilkka ahmavaara



    Is there any place to roll Back to previous Graphene version. Updating to 2.0 messed up my whole page! There seems to be too much work to get it working under 2.0, may´be I could do it later when I have time.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi,
    i am so happy to test the update with my Test-Wordpress-Page, because my Test-Wordpress Design ist now a horror …. i am not so good with codeing … css…. so i have no chance to use Graphene 2.0 with my design….

    The Problem are that i have not all design options as the old one.
    Next is the texts of my posts are all from edge to edge – i want left, right, top, down 2-3 mm of free space 🙁

    How can i add graphics – dont want to use colors if i have not the same color options.

    Thats my design by my website:

    and thats by my test website….

    Next Problem is… that if i change something in the style.css – no changes…

    only problems…. i was so happy to see a new Update, but now … i can look for an other Design… its only for private and dont want to pay hundrets of euros for CSS …

    It seems that Graphene 2.x and 1.9.x.x. are not coded for compatibility (really, I’m not joking). These themes could (hopefully) be differentiated into two different themes for a while. The Graphene team could update the 2.0 themes separately and 1.9 series separately. Unless compatibility can be archieved in future upgrades of 2.x.

    The biggest problems with the transition from 1.9 to 2.x theme come from WordPress multisites where own independent sites can be dozens and built by various administrators on Graphene – I can imagine the destruction is great.

    I rolled back my main page to (“World war II release”) and had still to do some correction after visiting 2.0. My page is highely css coded version of graphene, and not really sitting in the 2.0 environment before finding some 50-100 new css codes. That takes time.

    In another page, multisite, I have done experiments with 2.0 and noticed css code to behave in a completely different way, way that I might solve in one year maybe, but I can not assume that sub-site administrators would handle the situation. Fortunately, they have not actually started building their sites yet, so they can get started on 2.x without any greater problems.

    (Hopefully my English is understandable, had to use google translator)

    I also had to do a rollback. Happy to say I was able to. 🙂

    I’ve done a bit of customization and am also using Graphene Mobile NEO, with different mobile menus and even switching out content in some content areas (workarounds for display).

    Happy that the theme is more responsive, but curious how to proceed. I’d like to update and have a dev server for testing. I’ll check PHP versions, but after that not sure how to proceed.

    Does this update make Graphene Mobile NEO obsolete?

    And is there a quick guide to re-establishing legacy color choices, etc.?


    @johnnywhee – on my test site i tested it without Graphene Mobile Neo and it works so, you dont need them more.
