Cancel 'Activate Theme'

    I feel like the stupidest thing ever…

    Instead of ”preview live” a theme just out of curiosity, I activated it for like 5 seconds… Immediately I went back to my original theme which – of course – took me days and days of love and personal crafting.

    But now it ain’t the exact same anymore. The little things on the side, on the bottom… All those little accessories I put so much energy on… I beg you wordpress helpers: tell me that this is NOT definitive and that there is somewhere a button to cancel the ”superhero” accidental activation (I know… how ironic), as OF COURSE, I hadn’t even saved half of everything.

    Thanks (many many!!!)

    The blog I need help with is



    There is no way to revert the theme. That is why there is a all customizations will be gone warning. 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.



    Hi Timethief,

    Thanks for being so quick.

    I don’t remember this warning: does this mean that – maybe – there is a chance that I didn’t actually activate the thing and that therefore there is an old version of the baby somewhere out there in the wide cyberspace?

    Thanks again!
