Custom Homepage Text - Unable to Save, Breaks

resolved (5 posts) (2 voices)

    Development URL:

    Original client site:

    Using WordpRess 3.7.1, Elegance 1.4, all plugins deactivated (made no difference.) (Child theme)

    Under the Elegance theme --->Homepage--->Custom Homepage Text

    Recently moved a client's site to a development URL in order to deal with some bizarre 301 redirects hard-coded by a previous developer (who refuses to answer email).

    Fresh install of WordPress 3.7.1, new MySQL database, imported the EXPORT key located under advanced theme options.

    Upon successful import all options look good, except "Custom Homepage Text" which has the theme's default text. Upon trying to edit OR copy paste client specific text, click SAVE, check home page and... all Custom Homepage text now gone.

    Also, unable to switch between "Visual" or "Text" tabs on Custom Homepage Text input field.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Hello smargus,

    That was a bug in one of the previous versions. You'll need to update to the latest version which is 2.4. Make sure to always use the latest versions of Wordpress, themes, and plugins.

    Dang, I was never notified of your reply. Since this is a client, Edward Arista for and the previous developer purchased the theme, how does one obtain the updated theme?
