  • How are you updating? Via a WordPress auto update, or via FTP? The former method should work okay, but with the second method check the mode you are using to upload. (“Binary” vs “ASCII”.)

    In either event, try disabling all plugins before you try updating.

    when u update what the error

    Hello there!

    I am updating via WordPress auto update. Upon entering the pw for my ftp, the page freezes, and then the page is unavailable, all I get is “updating to 1.0”. I can’t even enter the administrator area anymore.

    Hi there

    Same problem “updating to 1.0”.

    Any update on this?

    Either try updating by manually uploading the theme’s files using FTP, or delete the Graphene theme from WP Admin > Appearance > Themes, and then install it again.

    As long as you don’t click the “Uninstall” button in the theme’s options page, all your theme settings should remain intact.

    Thanks silverks

    Unfortunately that didn’t work for me — I was attempting to upgrade from an earlier version (1.1.2) which left too many database tables/entries to analyse as to why the errors were occuring on upgrade.

    Instead I’ve simply changed the instances of “graphene” in the code to side-step the corresponding database tables.

    Obviously that will present issues re upgrading, but for now the client site is up to date.

    btw, I still have the link to your site for acknowledgements (thank you).


    Hello there,

    I tried updating via ftp and it created the same problem. Is it possible that Graphene causes problems with the latest wordpress version?

    Is it possible that Graphene causes problems with the latest wordpress version?

    Nope. There are thousands of us using it without any of the problems you describe.

    If you are updating via FTP, make sure that you are moving the correct folder (the one without version numbers) and that your FTP method is set to “Auto”.


    I removed the update code (in admin/db-update.php) and the site now loads, albeit with some minor formatting issues. I had to reinstall widgets and whatever. I have two versions, which I switch between to see how the site is supposed to look, and the new (current) version which has the minor formatting problems.

    Code removed (which was causing problems).

    if ( get_option( ‘graphene_ga_code’ ) === ” ){
    wp_die(‘updating to 1.0’);

    Not the most elegant solution, but I’m not a php programmer, and I’m short on time.

    I already have this problems to at my old site…

    My new URL

    Just FYI:

    In one of my implementations, I use a child theme (outstanding idea!).

    When I get updates, it sometimes seems to revert to the default Graphene theme.

    I have found that the actual culprit is the caching plugin I use.

    I have to remember to flush the cache when I update plugins and themes.
