Hii… i am using 2.2.3 version of sparkling theme. i am using child theme. now if i update to latest 2.2.4, will my widgets, setttings, menus be affected? is it safe updating or should i continue with the same version. what are the changes in the new one?
I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.
The latest released version of Sparkling theme is 2.2.1 which you can find here Sparkling – WordPress theme | WordPress.org so i don’t know which theme version 2.2.4 you are talking about.
It is safe to update our themes to the latest version but it’s recommended to take back up of your site so that in rare case if anything goes wrong then you can recover it.
I wouldn’t say its safe, the theme options menu has disappeared!
Could you please tell me from which theme version you have updated the theme to what version and how have you updated it?
@movin - SparklingVersion: 2.2.1
Latest Wordpress install (upgraded).
This was a clean install, clean theme install.
Do you have the url for the options, I can copy+paste that in and see if I can actually load it? Might just be a bug of it missing in the theme menu.
PS: There are plenty of other people describing the above missing options link, not just me
After some further investigation - https://colorlibsupport.com/t/social-options-missing/
So the “options” menu is no longer a thing for social icons, and we need to create as per the above post instructions.
Actually in the latest version of the theme all theme options are now moved to WordPress customizer that you can find in the admin area under Appearance >> Customize. All settings are still there but now you can tweak everything on a live preview. This change is made due to wordpress.org recommendation.
I have not been able to get into theme options for weeks! I get a blank white screen. On top of that, I’ve posted here a couple times, and my posts never show up!! Am I crazy here?
Regarding these issues i have answered on your following separate topics so to help keep support thread separates could you please reply there.
