Website Theme Deleted by Accident?

  1. Hi,

    My client hired a WP neophyte to make some changes to his site. In the process, the person ran a WordPress update. When he check the website afterwards, his (very custom) theme had vanished.

    Can someone explain how this could have happened?

    Thank you!

  3. If you need it, it's http://tinyurl.com/cpzmfud

    I would think overwriting a theme just from running an update is not a common problem. Maybe he named the theme the same as one of the default themes?

  4. Go to the footer of that theme and click the "powered by WordPress" link please.
