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:1840October 23, 2018 at 4:39 am #1025223
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. Why you should have a staging version of your WordPress site

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.

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.November 6, 2018 at 5:14 pm #1030459
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.

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.

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.November 11, 2018 at 7:00 am #1032138
Great, glad you got it working and thanks for the feedback. Thanks @seekvisa for sharing :-)

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.November 11, 2018 at 5:56 pm #1032251
Unpin means uncheck the box that enable the function “error 404 page” in the encold’s general options!November 12, 2018 at 9:23 am #1032486
Sorry for the problem, doing what @alecalzavara wrote should fix it though.
