Support » Fixing WordPress » Sites appearance completely changed after WP Update?

  • I am relatively new to page building and all this stuff!
    I am using elementor and pre built templates to build websites.
    I built this site for the father of a friend and after I updated the WordPress the site looks completely different! The structure seems to be the same on the first look but fonts are different, header and footer is completely gone which occurs to be the biggest problem.
    I put it in maintenance now but here is some screenshots: https://prnt.sc/111bns4, https://prnt.sc/111bod1
    I used to create the header and footer with the plugin elements kit.
    Should I downgrade WordPress or choose a backup from February or is there an easy solution for my problem?
    And does problems like that always occur when there comes a new WordPress Update?
    Thanks in advance

  • @danycooper your website looks fine on my end – both on desktop and mobile.

    Updating WordPress core should not update the way your website looks. Most probably a theme or a plugin was updated as well. You can restore the backup you have and then update the theme and plugins one by one and check how these individual updates affect your website.

    Without seeing a live version of your website with the issues, we can’t tell exactly what the problem is. Have you contacted your theme’s developers?

    As for the header and footer issue I recommend asking at https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/elementskit-lite/ so the plugin’s developers and support community can help you with this.

    And does problems like that always occur when there comes a new WordPress Update?

    WordPress updates don’t affect in general how things look, but rather how things work. Updates are carefully tested and they should not break any things. If any issue is discovered a patch will be applied very soon. So no, updates are not usually a source of trouble.

    Hope this helps,
    Kind regards!
