    I fear this may be an actual bug that would need to be fixed, and not just a matter of a normal delay (it’s been six months now), so I’ll allow myself to ping my post, just once.

    It may just be a bug. I doesn’t look like this theme has been updated since may and as it only has one review, the author may have abandoned it.

    Otherwise. If 2.8 is in the log but not released on the main sites then its possible it hasn’t been approved for release yet, and could be buggy also.

    Does your dashboard offer to update for you? If not I’d say stick with what’s working.

    To be honest, it’s hard to say.

    If it were a security concern, those 2.8 files wouldn’t even be in SVN, they’d be scrubbed from the world. So, at least it’s not that. 🙂

    Maybe the theme’s developer decided to pull it and put 2.7 back instead, perhaps there was a critical bug in 2.8? Perhaps 2.8 was never released and it’s just there for development?

    I recommend asking at https://wordpress.org/support/theme/floki#postform so the theme’s developers can help you with this.

    It’s a theme I was interested in, but on which I gave up last spring (I needed infinite scrolling, which required tweakings the theme’s structure wouldn’t allow), favouring another one… but promising myself I’d check again half a year later to see how the theme evolved.

    I re-installed it a pair of minutes ago, and still no change, only the version 2.7 is offered.

    That version is working fine apparently, however no mention is made in the updates of any 2.8.

    Thanks for your replies, Joshpe and James, I don’t understand how theme validation, approval and submission works on the inside, and I still don’t, haha. Apparently, there’s no way to tell why 2.8 hasn’t been published, then ?

    I’ll ask in the Floki subforum then, allright. Time will tell, I guess!
