Can't find certain themes now that I've bought upgrade
I found a bunch of themes I liked, such as Ambiru, Kubrick, Day Dream and so on, and now that I’ve bought the Premium Bundle, I can’t find them. Where are they?
The blog I need help with is belleweatherfarm.wordpress.com.
The list of retired themes is here > https://wpcommaven.wordpress.com/2013/08/09/happy-retirement/
From time to time old themes that no longer support WordPress.com features are retired. That will always be the case. I searched and located these responses from Staff with regard to retired themes like the ones you named:
Oh, that is SO disappointing! All the simple little themes I like don’t exist anymore… though my old blog has been allowed to keep it, I imagine, because it hasn’t changed. I miss the simple little blogs, and don’t find a single one I like in the current choices for my new blog….
Mobile use is exploding. There are more people with mobiles now than there are those who have either toothbrushes or toilets. No, I’m not kidding when I say that. I use responsive width themes. Responsive width means the layout adapts depending on the size of the device being used to view your site. When responsive width themes are viewed on mobiles sidebars appear below the posts in order to provide as much space as possible for reading.
When using any responsive width theme we go here > Appearance > Mobile and disable the mobile theme.
If you have an old account (which you do) you should still be able to find these themes in your Dashboard> Appearance> Themes. When a theme is retired, it means that new users won’t have access to them.
Having said that,I agree with tt that responsive/flexible width is the way to go these days.
LOL, I am SO in the dark ages, no device, though I must admit, I am very glad for my toilet and toothbrush! Why would you disable the mobile theme? It is likely that the people checking out my blog will use a mobile on their first pass, then go home and look me up later….. still struggling to find any current blog that will approach the look I desire. Booklite is the closest, but the header image shape is all wrong for what I need to portray. I need a “taller” or “less wide” image size.
