The Problem

WordPress 3.4 changed the way they handle Thumbnail/Featured Images.  This caused most sites to not show these images.  This is not a WP Zon Builder issue.  Here is a Google search for wordpress 3.4 images problem, which shows the problem.

WP Zon Builder can only be responsible for WP Zon Builder images.  WordPress’s 3.4 update may affect other themes and plugins.

If you have other display issues after the upgrade to WordPress 3.4 or higher it may be a theme and or other plugin issues.  Check with those developers for solutions.

The Solution

Download newest version of WP Zon Builder 2.5L or greater.  As of 2.5L, WP Zon Builder is coded to conform to the new WordPress 3.4 standard.  (Note – 2.5L will also work on older versions of WordPress)

It is a good practice to do a backup of your site and database before upgrading or any significant change.

Also, for those that have made some modifications like a modified Theme Template Set or created a new Theme Template Set.  You should save those to your hard drive and upload those back to the appropriate places after you have upgraded.

Instructions:

New users, installs and websites:

  • Use WP Zon Builder 2.5L or greater and Install like normal, no worries.
