    hi there, My website is glutenfreegal.com and I am far from a webmaster and know nothing about code. After the update my theme is now all messed up after I spent the last three weeks making it perfect and I am really annoyed. Can i go back before the update because I have no idea how to fix it and cannot afford to hire someone to do it for me. Thank you

    I wouldn't recommend downgrading, but if you want to avoid WordPress from being automatically updated then you'll have to edit the wp-config.php file by adding this line of code:

    define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );

    Now, what theme are you using?

    Your theme styles were overwritten with the new update. Do you have your site backed up on a regular basis? If so, I can help you.

    I'm using Scope by Scroup
    Version: 1.0
    By wpsmart

    I don't think it is backed up? Do I have to do that manually?

    If it is not backed up, you'll have to contact the theme author directly about this issue.

  7. @glutenfreegal: Ask GoDaddy to restore a backup, if they have one, to roll back your site.

    You should have your own backups for these kinds of situations and for security; try http://wordpress.org/plugins/backwpup/

    Or try GoDaddy's managed WordPress hosting, where they handle everything for you: http://www.godaddy.com/hosting/wordpress-hosting.aspx

    @songdogtech: Hey sorry about that, I did not mean to seem like I was soliciting work. Newbie! Wasn't sure how people answered others issues.

    @creativemouse, you don't have to say, "I will help out" as you just can answer their questions directly on here.

    For that, you'll have to contact the theme author.

    If you are making any theme changes then make sure you are using a child theme first.

    (have bookmarked your site, am cd myself)
