Thanks Nikko. I’ve now completed the update. I’m always nervous doing that kind of stuff.
Sorry about the late reply, thanks very much for making such a comprehensive answer.
For some reason, like millions of other people it seems, I cannot get my FTP application to connect to the server 530 error. I’m waaaaay over spending days and days trying to resolve this.
Can you tell me why I can’t just carry out the update using cpanel? I’m sure i’ve used it before for an update.
Can somebody pleas clarify whether I can use the cpanel to update the theme or do I have to use FTP?
Thanks very much
and now this one but it won’t let me edit the page to remove it via yoast

I didn’t remove the .htaccess because I wasn’t sure which of the 3 I needed to remove.
For some reason both websites appear to have resolved the issue. I’m not sure what the problem was or how it has resolved but i’m glad I’m back on track – frustrating. Thanks for your help Rikard.
Can we please keep this thread open for a few more days in case it reoccurs?
On this website ( as opposed to my other one that the same thing is happening to) when I change it to the default WP theme i do NOT get this problem.
I saved my permalinks to ‘day and name’ again and that didn’t resolve the issue. It’s definitely only when I am using the enfold theme. I also update my php in my FTP control panel but that didn’t resolve anything.
I can find a few .htaccess files when I search my root directory but I don’t know which one to delete, which folder do I delete it from?
I also tried deactivating both plugins but it didn’t resolve the issue. FWIW both of those plugins have been working harmoniously with the enfold theme on my other site but both sites have run into this problem in the last 24hrs.

In fact I’m getting the same problem on my other WP website which is an enfold theme…. this is bizarre..
Update. I set it to plain and it still doesn’t save/update any changes.
I’ve added a temporary link to the private section
Thanks for suggesting that, I found the permalinks but I can’t see a reset function, do you mean just select ‘plain’ because it is on ‘day and name’ atm?
Thanks for explaining that, it makes sense now. I have only recently started using Instagram so I’m not all that familiar with it.
Yes but that only links to my Instagram page, as opposed to the ‘share’ icons at the bottom of the blog post. i would like to be able to share the blog from that page to my Instagram and have other people to be able to share it to their Instagram also.

Ok thanks very much for that. I can’t believe I missed that, I seriously spent days going through everything… must have had a boy look. Thanks Victoria.
Thanks again for you reply. Those widgets seem to have disappeared now which is great, perhaps my browser wasn’t refreshing yesterday.
Yes that grey section that you showed the screen capture of is the one I want to remove. I’ve tried all of the settings for headings etc but for some reason I can’t find how to remove that grey section without having the layer slider or a transparent header. I just want the page to display as it is but without that ‘Blog – Latest news’ in grey. It looks fine but no other part of the website uses that grey section so I would like to remove it to maintain consistency.
Thanks very much for your reply. I did remove those widgets as you’ve stated but even once they are in the inactive widgets section, they still appear on the post/page itself. Not sure why.
Are you able to provide a solution for the problem I asked about in the first post – point 2?
Ok thanks for that Basilis, I think for now I’ll remove the search function (once I figure out how to do that) or it just looks like the site is still under construction or unfinished. I look forward to that update.
Thanks very much Basilis, I feel kind of silly now that I know what had to be done but I tried looking everywhere but couldn’t see the snwer. Thanks so much for your quick solution.
Wow thanks Mike, I went through every other page comparing everything and I can’t believe I missed that. Thanks very much Mike.
Thanks for your prompt reply. I added that code into the Quick Css and it changed the white bar to grey. On every other page that white bar (or any section like that bar) does not exist, i just want to remove it completely rather than modify it.
I’m not even sure what that container is called within any settings, if I remove the layerslider it still remains, I would have been happy to sacrifice the layerslider if that made a difference but no luck there.
Thanks very much for your help, I upgraded my php to 7.2 and it fixed the problem immediately. Thanks very much
Note: Within my cpanel i see that I’m running php version 5.3, should I update that to 7.2 or would that make no difference?
Hi Nikko, Could you try it again please, I didn’t realise that it had expired but it should work now.
Update, I’ve reinstalled the latest version of WP and that hasn’t resolved the issue so it would seem to be an error with the template or settings…
Ok thanks very much Ismael, I really appreciate you making the effort to help me. Thanks again
These are the ones I posted earlier in the thread. Just be sure to choose hosting manager not account manager or it won’t work.
Thanks for you help, I’m really stuck – despite my best intentions
