I've broken my theme and want to re-set it! (Greyzed)

  1. Newbie. Foolishly tried to modify CSS of Greyzed, it didn't work, and now can't re-set the Greyzed theme back to the way it was. I created a couple of menus and pages and they're now invisible. This is how my blog looks now: http://joedumont.wordpress.com/. I just want it looking like the original Greyzed template again.

    (To confuse matters further I also tried a different theme and tried to modify that, before returning to Greyzed).

    I've tried pasting the original Greyzed stylesheet CSS into 'CSS Stylehseet editor' to no avail. I've a feeling the stray bits of CSS I tried in my previous edits are still in my theme somewhere.

    Can anyone advise?

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

  2. To ‘reset’ a theme, you need to delete the CSS in the Editor, make sure the “add to existing CSS” radio button is checked, and then "save". When you alter a theme’s stylesheet, you only need to put ito n the Editor the modification/additions to the CSS, not the entire thing. Pleas read this for more information. > http://csswiz.wordpress.com/2009/10/15/if-you-have-the-wp-com-css-upgrade/

  3. Thanks, timethief! You're a life saver! I've been pulling my hair out all afternoon trying to restore my stylesheet. Consider my fingers well and truly burned, and a lesson well and truly learned :)
