Can't change theme from Sand

  1. I changed the theme to Sand. I tried to change it to something else. In the themes, it looks as if the change is activated, but when I go back to "read my blog", Sand is still the theme. Help!

    The blog I need help with is socialdesignsolutions.net.

  2. Normally we go here > Appearance > Themes and can easily change themes. Have you been CSS editing this blog?

    If so CSS is theme specific. If you have custom CSS and later change themes, you need to delete whatever CSS you have in the Editor, otherwise, you’ll get undesired results.

    To ‘reset’ a theme, you need to delete the CSS in the Editor, make sure the “add to existing CSS” radio button is checked, then save. Things should go back to normal.

    When you alter a theme’s stylesheet, you only need to put in the Editor the modification/additions to the CSS, not the entire thing. Read this for more info:
