    Hi, please help! I accidentally changed the theme – how do I change it back?

    The blog I need help with is



    All you do is go to the theme section and check below for the themes that you have saved from previous times Or if you remember the name of the theme then search for it



    Do NOT provide WordPress.ORG advice on these WordPress.COM support forums. It does not apply. It’s not correct and it confuses WordPress.COM bloggers.


    Hi timethief, thanks for clarifying (it is WordPress.COM and not Do you have any advice for changing the theme back in



    Hi there,
    I sure do and I’m sorry I forgot to post it before. I don’t know which theme you previously used.

    The default theme is Twenty Twelve.

    Go to 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.


    Thank you! :)



    You’re welcome.
