Uninstall upgrade

  • Ana-V


    Hi everyone

    I just upgraded graphene to version 1.6, and even though I use a child theme, my blog looks different. As I know next to nothing about coding, I’m having a hard time making it look like the old version.

    The slider is different and I had already cropped all the pictures to fit with the text on the right (now it’s at the bottom), and I think that my blog looks kind of messy now, like before there was more space between columns, titles, etc. And some minor changes that maybe only I notice but that bother me.

    Anyway, my question is: is there a way to just uninstall the upgrade? Of course, I didn’t backup anything 🙁 🙁

    This is my blog: http://www.viajarnafranca.com

    Thanks for your help!



    For the slider thing,

    .full-sized .slider-entry-wrap {
    height: 100%;
    right: 0;
    left: auto;
    width: 30%;



    Hello Ana-V with the beautiful smile!!

    Well, you can certainly revert back to an earlier version. This shouldn’t have any affect on your saved content or options. It’s actually pretty safe and easy to do.

    However, I would MUCH rather see you get the changes made for 1.6… and not have to revert.

    Would you mind making me a small list of some of the things which have changed? I’ll do my best to help you get it back to the way it was before the update. I know with my site, I had to make a few modifications to my CSS to get it smooth.

    So, what are some of the areas you are not happy with?



    Thanks Prasanna for the slider fix! I already added the code to my child theme. But if I remember well, there was a “read more” button after the text extract, where did it go?? 🙂

    Josh, actully the changes are pretty subtle, most of them would be hard to explain! An obvious one was the upper right corner of each post that used to have a rounder shape.

    And then I also think that the text inside each post is too close to the left border. I don’t know if it has actually changed or if it’s just an impression I have.

    The titles changed colors too but I was able to fix that alone. YAY for me! That was some hard core coding 😉 lol

    But I still think that the titles look weird. And the line just below it (with the categories) is too close to the title. Maybe because of the calendar image that has changed?

    And the weirdest of all: some of my comments links are in English, some are translated.

    Sorry if the list is too long, I don’t want to bother you, if it’s too much trouble to explain how to fix everything, I’ll just reverse back to the old version (if someone is also willing to explain me how to do it! ;))




    1. Rounded corner. Add this to your custom css:

    .post {
    border-top-right-radius: 30px;

    2. For the padding, we can’t increase it much, but we can a little…

    .post {
    padding: 15px 5px 10px;

    3. Changing title colors?? Yes, that is some of the hardest core coding I have ever come across in my life!! 😉 Great Job!! Feels good when you figure it out yourself, doesn’t it?? 🙂

    4. To move the categories down slightly…

    .post-meta {
    margin-top: 3px;

    5. The comments?? I’m not quite sure what you mean here. Could you provide a page url for reference?



    Hi everyone:

    This morning I upgraded to the new version graphene 1.6 and I had the same issue.

    The slider appears with the black text box at the bottom and some images are cropped.

    I configured the slider with the text box at the right and the images were sized for that.

    I also had other issues but i could repair them with the help of this forum :-))))))

    @Ana-V I had the same issue with the titles but finally i could also fix it!!

    @ Prasanna. I have seen the code but do i have to fix it at the EDITOR section instead of

    .full-sized .slider-entry-wrap {

    background: url(images/black70.png) repeat;

    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8);

    position: absolute;

    left: 0;

    bottom: 0;

    width: 100%;

    margin: 0;

    z-index: 300;

    Thanks all of you for your help 😉



    @ Alfredomtch,

    Just paste the code Prasanna provided into your child theme style.css file, or into your custom css box in the options panel.



    Hi Josh:

    Thank you very much for your help. It works!! I had a really bad time this morning but finally everyting is ok. My site is http://www.et.mtc.es.




    Wow thanks Josh that was great! My blog is finally starting to look like itself again 🙂 It’s so nice of you to share your knowledge with us. Thanks so much.

    I was taking a look at your website and I really liked the shadow effect around your posts. How did you do it? If you don’t mind sharing 🙂

    Also, I have some ads that I added to the foot of each post. I’d like them to appear like they do on your site, between each post. I tried to enter the code in the Graphene Options for Adsense but it didn’t work (I think it’s because the ads are from a different affiliate program). Do you know which action hook area I should enable in order to display the ads between posts? I’ve been trying lots of them but trial and error is taking me forever to find!



    Sorry to butt in but for the shadows around the post.

    .two-columns .post {
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px #BBBBBB;
