Theme Update & Obit Shortcode
# 8 months, 2 weeks ago
I purchased the Obsequy Theme for a funeral home client and am building their website, but I’m having two issues I hope you can help me with.
First, there is an update for the theme, but I can’t see how to update it. I have downloaded the most recent version, but of course when I go to upload it, the upload fails because the theme is already there. The Envato Toolkit plugin only gives me a download link. And on the updates pages, it tells me the theme is up to date.
Second, I was using shortcode to display the obituaries on the home page and the obituaries page. Until recently, it was working, and now it isn’t. It’s displaying the shortcode on the front end. Here is the shortcode I’m using:
[vc_row][vc_column][obsequy_obituary obituary_post_date=”1″ obituary_birth_date=”1″ obituary_excerpt=”1″ obituary_excerpt_number=”30″ obituary_more=”1″ obituary_sort_date=”1″ obituary_number=”4″ obituary_terms=”319″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
I am using the Divi Builder by Elegant Themes to design the website. Could this be causing a conflict with the shortcode somehow?# 8 months, 1 week ago
1. For updates in your WP Dashboard use the new Envato Market plugin http://support.imithemes.com/how-to-get-theme-updates-notifications-with-in-your-wordpress-dahsboard/
2. Theme use shortcodes for the Visual Composer page builder. So in case you are using some other page builder then the visual composer plugin must be active so you can add it’s shortcodes to other page builder’s text widget.
I experienced that there is an old version theme installed on your server.Please update it to latest version along with it’s associated plugins.You can update your theme easily with http://support.imithemes.com/how-to-get-theme-updates-notifications-with-in-your-wordpress-dahsboard/
p.s. Please deactivate all third party/external plugins as certain installed on your server before updating it and then check if both the issues get resolved.
Dates of “Öbits” had been added in wrong format due to which these are not displaying. I have
changed one of the obits on your server and it appears now on home page:
Please see below screen URL and make the required changes for rest of the obits:
