    Bad update experience

    Updated from 3.0.4 – to 3.0.5.1. (“followed to the letter”)

    I can’t tell you how disappointed and upset I am.

    MAN……there is so many things wrong, it’s not even funny after the update.

    1) I’ve 8 photos upload option with the listing. (it is set correctly in admin)
    On listing page:
    1st – photo upload OK
    2 nd upload field is now missing
    3 – through 8 is grayed out. Cannot be used to upload.

    (Plus when listing edited / modified – only text can be changed - photo can’t be changed. (no option to change or upload another/replace )
    - Only option is to delete photo )
    That is not good.

    3) Front page – (all side bars are disappeared)
    (it is set and it shows in admin )
    4) New field don’t show on listing form
    5) Banner links (adblock) was set to link to sites – now over written to point to (appthemes site) Actually 3.05 – in “adblock” replaced “cp_header_ad” with “appthemes_header_ad” and point the banner link to www.appthemes.com.
    So, what site link enetered for the banner in admin setting – have no effect – it’s points to www.appthemes.com
    6) Custom.css ignored. (since many codes has changed – it practically useless)
    Plus even making a shorthand custom css – CP is overwrite it anyway to old style css – I don’t understand why? – Pretty annoying.
    7) Suddenly 2 Blog link at footer
    And many more…..
    The whole thing is just so bad…..very slow with many errors
    It was a really bad update experience. I whish I wouldn’t do it

    It looks as many issue /bug maybe created with a replacement code of “cp_” with “appthemes_”, because it doesn’t match in many places

    Can I just restore back to 3.0.4 – it’s still on the site?
    How do I restore the whole things to 3.0,4?
    Or, I need to fresh reinstall the whole things?
    Advise please.
    Thanks
