I do not want black navigation bar at the top of my site. How do I put it where it was before, under the main heading and change its color back to the original layout I had before the update? Thanks…February 4, 2017 at 18:42 UTC - Views: 3 #33125
Please provide a link to your site so we can check what may be going on.
Did you check your settings in Main options > Menus to see if they did change?
Also assuming you created your menu with WordPress Custom menus, did you check the Custom menus in Appearance > Menus to see if the primary or secondary menu allocation is still the same?February 4, 2017 at 19:32 UTC - Views: 6 #33126
The link to my site is..http://www.intuitivesensitivesheri.com/ See the black bar at the top? It also appears this way on the theme update page before I updated it.. I did not change anything.
Also the width of the site changed. It got wider and wiped out the colored background I had originally had. I tried to restore it the best I could, but it is not like it was.
This is s snapshot of it before (it does not show the letterhead, but the grey navigation is beneath the letterhead) https://web.archive.org/web/20160403113409/http://www.intuitivesensitivesheri.com/

You definitely seem to have lost many of your settings, and some new one have been activated.
I do not see how updating the theme could have both lost settings and activated new ones.
@weaver may have more ideas on how that could have happened
1- Ideally, if you had downloaded a copy of your settings before, from the save restore page, I would suggest to try and load them back up from Save Restore > Upload settings from file saved on computer.
If you did not download a backup of your settings, you need to take the habit of doing so every time you make design changes.
2- The next solution would be to ask your host provider to restore a backup of everything from before you did the update. If that brings the site back as it was, then Download a backup of your settings from save restore, and try the update again.
3- If for some reason you cannot restore a backup with the proper settings, then you will have to manually fix them.
Below are some of the obvious things I see, but there may be more.
Right now your menu is set to be fixed at the top.
Change that in Main options > Menus > Primary Menu Bar > Fixed Top menu drop down list > Select “Standard Position: Not fixed”.
Below that review all the color options, as if you menu is black, they must be changed
For the background, same type of problem, some of the full width options appear to have been checked.
Go to Main Options > Full Width Page, and uncheck them all. I see at least that the header and the info bar are have the Extend BG checked, but uncheck them all
You are also missing you gradient background so that will need to be put back in, and there are no background set for the wrapper, which should probably be made white.February 4, 2017 at 22:15 UTC - Views: 7 #33128WeaverKeymaster
This looks like a reset to the default theme, and is a symptom of the max_input_vars issue. If there is no backup of the theme settings, it may require a site restore.

Thanks for the help. I will start on this today. This happened to another one of my sites when I upgraded the weaver extreme theme to 3.1.1. So it definitely had something to do with that. I will have to re do that one as well.
Is it okay if I don’t update my other 3 sites to 3.1.1? Will I be missing anything very important? Those are my “main” websites and I do not want to redo them. Lots of content, etc..
Up to now your updates have been so great at not changing anything that I have neglected to back things up as I should…Got a little too trusting, I guess.February 5, 2017 at 18:13 UTC - Views: 4 #33130
No need to rush updating to 3.1.1, and weaver may have a new version out soon with a fix that will detect when the max variables is reached and warn people without loosing settings.
First thing to do on all your sites is increase the max variable as explained in the threads reference by weaver above, to something like at least 2000.
Now even if you failed to download a backup of your settings (and yes life will teach you when you do that 🙂 ) you could eventually do the following:
February 5, 2017 at 20:15 UTC - Views: 2 #33131
- Make a full backup of your current configuration.
- Have your Host provider restore a full backup from before the update
- Download a copy of your setting from that proper configuration.
- If you had content that had been updated after you had done the update, you could then restore the latest backup done in in the first step above
- Then use the downloaded settings in step 3 to restore the styling on your last configuration.
Thank you. I will wait to hear from weaver about a new update. Does this mean that 3.1.1 will be skipped when the new update becomes available?February 5, 2017 at 20:22 UTC - Views: 3 #33132The fix will only be a warning to detect a problem with your configuration, and prevent loosing settings.
You still need to change the max variable setting in your WordPress installation using the appropriate method for your hosting company (editing the php.ini, or editing the .htaccess). You do not need to (nor should) wait for the new version to do that, you should go ahead and increase that number as I mentioned above.
Once you do that, you can actually safely update to 3.1.1 r 3.1.2 when it comes out.
And yes I believe that when and update is detected, it goes to the last one only.February 7, 2017 at 17:23 UTC - Views: 2 #33133
