changing themes

  1. I'd like to switch my theme from chalkboard to delight, but I cannot discover how to do that anywhere. How?

    Stephen Archer

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

  2. Delight is a premium theme http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/delight/ http://delightdemo.wordpress.com/
    You make the purchase by being logged in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog you want to buy them theme for at Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/premium-themes/

    No data will be lost or negatively affected by the theme change. The only time you may have to do some work is if you are changing to a dramatically different theme and have done any CSS editing.

    Provided you are logged in as Admin under the same username account that registered the blog go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes and browse themes until you find one you like and click "activate" or type in the name of the theme you want to use and
    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.

    @timethief is correct.

    You can search for and purchase the Delight theme here:

    https://archersm.wordpress.com/wp-admin/themes.php

    If you're receiving an error, please send me a screenshot, so I can better understand the issue. You can simply upload the screenshot to your Media Library, like any other image, and I'll be able to access it from there.

    The page at the following link has some helpful tips for taking screenshots:

    Once I get some feedback, we can take the next troubleshooting step in resolving your issue.
