don’t know how many of my readers are WordPress bloggers, but those who are will probably understand. This afternoon I was previewing a bunch of new blog themes and accidentally activated one of them. Yikes!
I flipped back and forth between several views, just to be sure. And there was no doubt. The theme you are looking at now was gone. Poof! In its place was an attractive but unwanted, unintended new look. “Panic” is only a slight exaggeration of what I felt. I’ve done this a few times in the past but always managed to fix things. This time I was drawing a total blank about what to do. And that alone was unnerving.
Fortunately I have a premium plan where I can get help directly and immediately instead of going to the WordPress forums, and some lovely, wonderful anonymous Happiness Engineer lived up to that title and got me back to this theme (Beacon), along with most of the changes I’d made to the original. The widgets were still kind of wonky, but that always happens. Didn’t take too long to get them back to what I remembered.
So, if you were here around mid-afternoon and strange things were happening, that’s what was going on.
