Just use cpanel or ftp to delete the wp-content/themes/generatepress/ folder and temporarily choose other theme and wait for Tom.July 25, 2015 at 7:34 am #123465Jason

Daily Backups is one of the keys to success….. Just restored the generatepress directory from yesterdays backup and good for now……July 25, 2015 at 8:05 am #123471robmac

A Quick fix for gettin the site running again (but with an other theme):
FTP to you site. Rename “generatepress” Folder in “wp-content” to something else i.e. old_generatepress. Your site will be blank afterwards. But you can login via
http://www.youwordpres-site.com/wp-admin and change the theme.July 25, 2015 at 8:35 am #123481shorshe
I got my site back up and running with the older version of the Template.
Follow these Steps (Works on OSX)
Open Terminal and type:
svn checkout https://themes.svn.wordpress.org/generatepress/1.3.04/
This will copy the previous version of the theme to a folder
Also type the fullstop
You’ll see a folder with the name “1.3.04” rename to “generatepress”.
FTP into your site. Open the folder “wp-content/themes” rename folder generatepress to old_generatepress. Upload folder “generatepress” from your Computer to the theme directory.
Should work now.July 25, 2015 at 9:05 am #123493Anonymous
In any case it is necessary to delete the topic? Or Tom be able to solve the problem, and fix anything do not have to?July 25, 2015 at 9:09 am #123495TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
So sorry everyone – my first major screw up 🙁
I’ve just released a patch on WP.org that will fix this.
It will be available through your Dashboards shortly as well.
Sorry again – terrible way to wake up!
