Support » Themes and Templates » Studiopress Lifestyle Theme Options Not Working After 3.1 Update!!

  • I have the Studiopress Lifestyle Theme and when I updated to WP 3.1 I lost the ability to make any changes in the theme options.

    I have already tried:

    Turning off all the Plugins, renaming the plugin folder, and uninstalling all the plugins.

    Installing the default theme and reinstalling the lifestyle theme

    Installing another Studiopress theme, it has the same problem.

    Deleting cache

    I am running out of options here…. It is obviously a problem with the update, but I don’t know what else to try. Please help

    The site is

  • I have the same! It must be that, I thought it might be permissions, but it cannot be anything other then the upgrade as my sites that have not been updated to version 3.1 are fine and I can save the theme options. Do you think its worth asking the guys at studiopress?

    I would, but I don’t have forum access…

    I’ve got the same problem too. I bought the site few months back and it was working fine until the update to WP 3.1.
    Did any of you guys find a solution?

    Nope, I switched to a different theme since then because I couldn’t get it right…

    The answer can be found in the support forum here:

    As a reminder, everyone who has a purchased copy of Lifestyle Classic will see when they login that they also have Genesis access – each Classic user was grandfathered in to the new version.

    That is like impossible for me. I bought the website and it came with the theme installed. I don’t have access to any other details other than the theme. 🙁

    We have seen that on occasion, and I do apologize! I know I typically urge developers to encourage their clients to purchase the theme to have access to ongoing support.
    Your developer may have purchased the theme as a one-off for your project, so it’s worth contacting them to see if you can get support forum access that way.
    If not, you may wish to purchase your own copy of the theme, which will provide not only a fix for your current solution, but will also grant access to ongoing updates via the Genesis framework.

    Ok will contact seller and take it from there.
    Thanks Rebecca you been great!

    I am having the same problem. I just tried the step listed above in the studiopress forum and this is the result I got:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home1/mtwoxweb/public_html/dmngoodstaging/ctr/wp-content/themes/career/tools/theme-options.php on line 11

    Mark, go ahead and post that on the support forum if you would, in that thread – we’ll help you troubleshoot it there. We try to consolidate support there as much as possible 🙂

    Thanks for the quick response, Rebecca. I actually got it to work. I had changed the name of the folder and didn’t realize that’s what it was pointing to. Found the answer here:

    I’m glad it’s working for you now! 🙂

    Hi guys! I’m pretty desperate to solve this problem, but I don’t have access to the Studiopress suport forum.

    Could it be possible for someone to PLEASE post the solution here?


    You can email me at rebecca at with the email address used to make the purchase – I can help you sort our your forum access that way 🙂

    Here’s an idea…
    Open /wp-content/themes/YOURTHEME/includes/theme-options.php,


    $settings = ‘mods_’.get_current_theme();


    $settings = ‘theme_mods_’.get_current_theme();

    Then go to WP Dashboard -> Appearance ->Your Theme Options, click “Save Settings”
