reset theme to default settings

  1. I recently switched to the twenty twelve template. However, I don't want to start from the content I had on my original site. How do I reset my wordpress site to what it would be if I had just started the site? To the default?

    The blog I need help with is toryjnash.com.

  2. Hi there,
    There is no such thing as a theme reset or theme deactivation here. Changing themes is easy to do and no data is ever lost. 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.

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

  3. I don't want any of the settings I had prior to changing themes. I want it to be as if I had just signed up for my wordpress account. A completely empty twenty twelve theme that I can start customizing.

  4. The good news is that there appears to be diddly squat for content in that blog. You can easily delete all blog content by yourself
