Support » Plugin: Options Framework » Version 1.7.0 places TWO Theme Options tabs on dashboard; broke theme

  • Resolved OverYonderField


    Using Organic Themes “Studio.” Requires Options Framework. Called for an update today and after updating, Home page content all disappeared. Added two “Theme Options” tabs to a new install as well. Not certain I can fix this; site supposed to go online this week! Please correct or tell me how.

    Hi. Is this what happened?

    1) Theme was working fine
    2) You upgraded the Options Framework Plugin to 1.7.0
    3) The theme no longer worked

    Or, did you update the theme?

    Howdy — I upgraded Options Framework and:
    >It erased the Theme Options choices I had made, which sorry to say, frightened me. (I have a Child Theme so theme updates don’t create issues.) I reset the choices and all was fine — but how does one preserve Theme Options from update resets?
    >It added a second Theme Options to the Appearance tab; see image.
    >FYI, this is using the Studio theme from Organic Themes.

    The additional tab is something Organic Themes will need to address in an update.

    Your current them options should not have been reset. I’ve asked them to test with the latest version of the plugin and will look into why this may have happened.

    I too have the same problems after the most recent Options Framework plugin update. It has virtually destroyed my WordPress site. It’s now quite unreadable. If there was any question regarding the recent plugin updates reliability, I would have postponed the update.

    I am using the Structure Theme by Organic Themes as well. I cannot express enough of the urgency to correct this problem. Any remedy or solution you have would be earnestly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regarding my most recent post. I found a rather easy (and hopefully proper)solution by simply using the “Restore Defaults” feature on the “Theme Options” page. I had to reselect the Features but it appeared to have worked nonetheless.

    However, I was nonplussed by the immediate loss of my intended format after the update. But alls well that ends well I guess. :-)s

    Organic Themes is hopefully looking into the issue. If you can send me a copy of the theme I’ll also try to see what is going on. My e-mail is devin [at]

    If anyone else has this issue, you can also downgrade to the previous of version of the Options Framework. Here’s the link:

    I think I’ve found the issue. New release has been pushed live. Apologies to those who encountered problems.

    I’m using the Organic Structure theme v. 3.1.2 and when I did the update for the Options Framework v. 1.7.1 it also gave me two “Theme Options” tabs under “Appearance” on the dashboard. Everything seems to be working properly, except it also says that I need to install the options framework, even though it is installed.
    I have uninstalled it, then reinstalled it and get same result as above.
    I have uninstalled it, deleted it, then added it back and get same result as above.
    Just wanted to let you know. I will probably go back to 1.6.

    I went back to 1.6 and everything is back to normal. I don’t think I want to try whatever is on that other link. I don’t do code – That’s why I thought I was on wordpress. 🙂

    Hi @bshendr. Organic Themes is working on a fix for the two menu item and notices issues. When they have a new release out you should be able to delete the plugin altogether as they are now bundling the Options Framework directly into their themes.



    @devin Price Thank you very much for uploading the 1.6 version of Options Framework this solved my problem immediately.
