    I activated a new theme to try it out, but I decided I didn’t like it. I went back to my old theme but it deleted all the widgets and customization I had set up. Any way to retrieve this information? Is it saved anywhere?

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

    Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes
    type in the name of the theme you want to use
    click the “activate” link when it appears

    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.
