    I updated WordPress and the Gold theme yesterday and now my contact page is empty. See here

    I don't even see that there is a template for the Contact page or Blog anymore. Should I have not updated??? Is there a way to go back?

    Thanks!

    Are you using a plugin for the contact form?

    Due to updates in the theme guidelines, contact forms are plugin territory. However, you can get the contact template back in action.

    -> Download the previous theme version here http://wordpress.org/themes/download/gold.1.33.zip?nostats=1

    -> Copy over files named contact.php and contactform.php to your new theme.

    -> In functions.php, include contactform.php by include('contactform.php')

    You can now use the contact template as you did previously

    Thanks Manas!

    Would I have to follow these steps every time I want to update the theme?

    Hi @knucks85,

    We will release a separate plugin with added functions specially for Gold in sometime. This will solve your problem probably by our next update which in its beta stage. Contact being a plugin territory, needs to be included as a plugin.

    Thanks
