    I’d like to try out a few different themes — not just preview them, but live with them for a few days. I’m just afraid that once I hit “Activate,” I’m going to lose my widgets, including a rather elaborate blogroll. Are my widgets safe?

    The blog I need help with is dankennedy.net.

    Yes. They will be found in the Inactive Widgets box after you change themes. All you need to do is go here > Appearance > Widgets > Inactive Widgets and re-install them where you want them to appear. This my be useful when it comes to selecting a new theme > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/02/26/sidebars-and-other-widget-areas/

    OK … That doesn’t sound too bad. Thank you.
