    Is this really the only solution you offer:

    function modify_jquery() {
    if (!is_admin()) {
    wp_register_script(‘jquery’, ‘https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js’);
    add_action(‘init’, ‘modify_jquery’);

    It can be only a temporary solution as it might cause more problems in the future with all parts of worpress that depend on the newest version of jquery.PrettyPhoto is already not working. Don’t you think you should fix your old code whithin the scripts?

    Hi crazygirl!

    Thanks for getting in touch with us!

    You need to ensure to upgrade to the latest version of the Enfold theme, which is Enfold 3.5.3. The above is of course a temporary fix.

    Best regards,


    You must be kidding…



    No, why would he? Things broke because WordPress core updating the version of jQuery.



    I don’t mind buying a new theme, the problem is there is no upgrade path. I know themes from different developers don’t share the same data structures, so when I wanted to upgrade to a responsive design, I purchased Enfold from you thinking that you would use the same or similar data structure and there would be a way to migrate the data. But it appears that is not the case. Instead, we must rebuild the site from scratch and copy/paste everything, re-upload images, etc. As a former web developer, I COMPLETELY understand the complexities of migration, but you can’t really be surprised at our frustration. We didn’t build our sites all at once, it is months or years of content development, and as business owners, it’s not easy to find that kind of time for a major rebuild.


    Ok, this appears to fix prettyphoto and the sorting function:

    function modify_jquery() {
    if (!is_admin()) {
    wp_register_script('jquery', 'https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.3.js');
    add_action('init', 'modify_jquery');

    It has to go in the theme functions.php (accessible through appearance->editor in the admin. Not the functions.php in wp-includes. If it’s put there, it breaks the site completely. (This was stated in the original instructions, but I made this mistake first.)


    Hi @mcr2582,

    Thanks for the feedback and sharing your thoughts. I completely agree with you but this is a “problem” much bigger than your regular theme developer. If content is to be able to be taken to and from all themes then there needs to be guidelines and rules set by WordPress core, nothing like that is in place today unfortunately. Our biggest selling point is our builder, and I’m pretty sure you would have the same problem using any builder like Visual Composer, Beaver Builder etc.
