A couple of years ago I bought a 6 month access pass to ithemes and I built a couple of sites using the Builder theme.

One of the clients I built a site for now wants some changes, starting with an upgrade of WP as he was running an old version still. however, the upgrade appears to ahve broken the theme as I can now no longer see the Widgets within the Appearance settings.

I understand there is a later version of Builder but surely I must be able to access the basic wordpress features - including widgets - without having to upgrade to a new version of the theme? Please help - I need to remove three widget areas as they are offering services he no longer offers!

Hi Alison,

To have access to support and to updates of Builder, you would need to renew your membership.  One of the recent updates to WordPress created a conflict with Builder which hides the widget menu.  You can still reach it by going to yourdomainname.com/wp-admin/widgets.php.

There are also two places to get to the widgets page for a specific Layout. When at My Theme > Layouts & Views, you can hover over a Layout's row and click the "Widgets" link to go to the widgets page for that Layout. If your Builder version is recent enough, from the front-end of the site, you can use the Builder > Manage Widgets for this Layout link in the admin menu bar at the top of the page to bring up the widgets page for the currently-viewed Layout.

Builder has had a fix for this issue for a while now. So if you are waiting for this to be fixed before renewing, you don't need to wait any more. :)
