After being busy with other projects I am back to working on my website. The last version I had installed was 126.96.36.19955. I tried to install the latest version 188.8.131.5226 and upon opening my template, portions of the background designs had been purged, (turned to blank white) etc.
The design of my pull down menus were also purged and now they are blank white with thin text. I reverted back to version 184.108.40.20655 and the background patterns returned however the colors and other settings for the pull-down menus are still blank white.
Is it possible I was not to install the current version into my existing Version 7 programs folder, as the software was going to create a new additional Version 8 folder within the program files folder.
