accessing original code after changing it?

  1. Hi, I'm trying to tweak a theme but think I might have deleted too much code. How can I access the original code and inster parts back into the installed version( I assume cut and paste would work)? Also, is it possible to save a copy of the original that you can refer to for later as you proceed with changes?

  2. The only themes we can use at wordpress.com are situated here > Appearance > Themes. We cannot access our template files at wordpress.com, let alone, edit them.

    WordPress.com is a hosted blog service. You do not have to download software, pay for hosting or manage a web server. WordPress.com does not permit FTP access and uploading themes or plugins. There are restrictions on the types of blogs allowed at wordpress.com and there are code and advertising restrictions as well.

    However, there are also an abundance of free features for the free blogs that are free hosted by wordpress.com and upgrades can be purchased for specific features. Purchasing any upgrade is a purchase for one blog for one year, and does not allow anything beyond what the support documentation states for the specific upgrade.

    WordPress.org is free software. You can install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database. Please read this entry so you are crystal clear about the differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org

  3. Are you experienced with CSS editing and have you purchased the upgrade? If you are "tweaking" the CSS stylesheet for a wordpress.com theme then you will have to wait for a Volunteer who provides CSS help to log in and locate this thread, which will need to be moved to the CSS customization forum, if you have the CSS upgrade.
