Can I safely change the theme of my existing blog full of content?

  1. It probably is safe but I need to know for sure....

    Will my content be safe and stay where it is when I change themes?
    Does changing themes have any influence on the find ability of my blog? I mean, does Google need to index again or doesn't google notice the change?
    If I decide to go back to my old theme, and haven't changed stuff yet, will it than be the way it was?

    I hope I don't sound silly, can someone help me out?

    The blog I need help with is sonspopkes.wordpress.com.

  2. Changing themes is easy to do and no data is ever lost. There is no impact on the blogs ranking in Google. You can change themes as often as you like very easily provided you don't have large images that may be effected by a theme change and that may require resizing after the change.

    You can go here Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and select a new theme and activate it. After you change your theme all you need to do is go here Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets > Inactive Widgets and re-install them where you want them to appear. The widget contents and settings will be the same as they were prior to changing themes.

    P.S. If you are already using a theme it will not appear as a theme selection that you can make here > Appearance > Themes but all the other themes will be there to choose from.

    To use the searchbox for theme features in order to narrow your search go here > http://theme.wordpress.com/

  3. Thanks, that's what I needed to hear.

    Have a nice weekend.
