    I updated my website from 4.4 to 4.5 on the 15th october, using the “Update Theme and Plugins from Zip File” plugin as mentioned my Enfold support – and since then Google hasnt been able to see the root of my website!!!! (it affects the ads that links to the root but not those that point to subpages) – google tells me that this is only on mobile sites, and it yield “404” errors. ;-(

    downgrading to 4.3.1 corrects the error and google now reads my page ALMOST alright again.

    There’s still one error, though: (google support guy told me how to find this with the Chrome Console:
    VM383 cff-scripts.js:16 Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined
    at cff_init (VM383 cff-scripts.js:16)
    at VM383 cff-scripts.js:1840


    Hey migduvednok,

    Where can we see and reproduce the problem? The .js file you are referring to is not a theme file, so it might be a plugin conflict. Did you try disabling all plugin?

    If you want to keep running the old version on your production site then I would recommend that you setup a staging version so that we can see the actual problem.

    Best regards,


    i do not know how to do that – how?


    404 error after updating the theme

    error 404 after theme update

    page speed insights shows 404 error

    GTMETRIX shows 404 error

    This happened after:

    21/Oct/2018:12:51:59 +0000] “POST /wp-admin/update.php?action=upload-theme

    upload theme

    5 seconds before 404


    this just seems to happen on the homepage


    Just to confirm, new update bring 404 not found on crawl engines

    When switched to twenty default wp theme error is gone.



    We have notified our developers for the error.

    Best regards,


    The easiest way to set up a staging site is to check your webhost to see if you have the one click staging site option, this is a option in most cPanels to create a staging clone of your site so we can test on it and you site will stay up and running. You can always ask your webhost to help you with setting this up if you want.

    Here are some screenshots of what it would look like:

    Hey. Unfortunately, I have exactly the same problem. When I made the upgrade to 4.5, google shows a 404 error in Page Speed and Searchconsole.


    Hi odbjur,

    Could you please attach some screenshots of the issue?

    Could you please give us a link to your website, we need more context to be able to help you.

    Best regards,


    I have the same problem; how to solve it?


    no way, im not touching that 4.5 poison again, until you have published an update solving the issue. so i guess that’l be 4.6.
    Right now im runnign an old 4.3.2 because i couldnt find 4.4.


    Ok, shall we close this then?

    Best regards,


    I fixed it in the theme settings


    seekvisa, THANK YOU.
    For other reader, the function “error 404 page” in the Enfold 4.5’s theme option don’t allow google bots to index the entire site. For me just unpinning it made the site indexable again.


    Hi alecalzavara,

    Great, glad you got it working and thanks for the feedback. Thanks @seekvisa for sharing :-)

    Best regards,


    What does unpinning mean?
    Does this post suggest we should NOT update live sites to V4.5? because it will impact on Google Search / Rankings etc?
    If we do, what exactly do we need to do to fix the issue? This does not seem something that would affect one user, but ALL users, but I’ve not seen lots of complaints – I’m just concerned about updating my client websites now.


    Unpin means uncheck the box that enable the function “error 404 page” in the encold’s general options!


    Hi Heathcliffe,

    Sorry for the problem, doing what @alecalzavara wrote should fix it though.

    Best regards,


    Ah, understood. Thanks guys.


    Hi Heathcliffe,

    Great, thanks for the update. Let us know if you should have any further problems.

    Best regards,
