    Hi, have just updated to v2.3 on https://www.aboutthemshoes.co.uk and it has totally thrown the home page. Seems to be displaying any or all posts. No other changes were made to the site.

    Please fix this asap.

    How was the home page displayed previously? Was it a static front page?

    Yes Syahir is was a static page, and is still coded as that in Settings – Reading. Here’s a link from Internet Archive https://web.archive.org/web/20171020200634/https://www.aboutthemshoes.co.uk/. The picture is part of the slider. You may recall the site as I had an issue with the 5 widgets at the foot of the page.

    On a slightly separate note .. I know that there has been a lot of discussion on version 2 and the changes included. I use the theme on several sites and on a couple I wish to retain the last version 1. Can I suggest a checkbox in Graphene options to prevent the checks for updates to the theme. This would help stop me accidentally updating the theme to v2 on the sites I wish version 1 to be retained.

    Thanks for your prompt attention.

    Can you share the current slider settings for the site? Is it showing content from selected category? If yes, is the option “Exclude the categories from posts listing” enabled?

    You can use plugins such as Easy Updates Manager to selectively disable update check for themes and plugins.

    Yes the slider is showing content from a selected category? And yes, the option “Exclude the categories from posts listing” was enabled. I have now unchecked that box and it displays correctly again. Is that what you were expecting Syahir?

    Thanks for the heads up on Easy Updates Manager plugin. I will look into this.

    Yes, that’s what I suspected, though it shouldn’t be affecting pages since by default pages don’t have categories. Have you by any chances added category to pages? If yes, can you check to see if the static front page is sharing the same category as the slider?

    I can’t see that categories have been added to pages. If it helps you to research the issue I am happy for you to have login details to have a look around! If this helps please provide me with a secure way of getting this information to you.

    Thanks, Chris

    Thanks, Chris. I’ve been able to identify the issue and produced a fix. Will release a maintenance update very soon.

    Lovely job!

    So when the fix is in place should “Exclude the categories from posts listing” box be checked or unchecked?

    Up to you. If you’d like to exclude the slider categories from posts listing elsewhere on the site, then it should be checked.
