If you upgrade via the Envato plugin, it kills all your own work on the theme. All I did was click to upgrade:
No other options or dialogues were given. I did read and assumed that I would see the wizard that was mentioned – and that it could then be skipped as per the post to avoid the problem. But there was no wizard. After clicking to upgrade, that’s it, it was off……..
Previous upgrades had worked via the Envato plugin without this problem.
Please can you advise. In production, this would have been a disaster….. thankfully I devtest first.
I touched nothing other than the update button in the screenshot, as I have done in the past with success on other upgrade versions. No theme folder was changed. I was running a child theme of xstore, that remained set in place when I checked after the upgrade issue.
I had to revert to a previous backup to be able to get my work done, but I do remember that colours and red Xstore imagery suddenly appeared across the frontend of the template immediately after that upgrade button click. So presumably theme options had been wiped…
